Some kids can be real devils

The Omen (1976)

Dir- Richard Donner
We all know that little kids can be real devils, but what if your child was the anti-christ. A woman births a child and then dies mysteriously the same night that the US Ambassador's wife delivers her child. A switch occurs, and the happy couple raises their child without knowing that they have the anti-Christ in their mists. A series of brutal and unique murders follow the child as he ages, and we discover a strange assortment of characters who seem to be interested in young Damien. With the talents of great actors like Gregory Peck, Lee Remick, and David Warner we have what has to be one of the best demon movies since The Exorcist. Little Damien is neither cute nor innocent, the horrible deaths that occur are all leading to something more sinister to come. The Omen featured a great music score and some brutally graphic murders, including a beheading, impalement by a cross and a swan dive into an ambulance. Followed by numerous sequels, the first and second of which are the only ones worth watching. There is also a remake that was ok yet its best to watch the original.
