Ooh, that Damien. He's a very naughty boy. A very naughty boy indeed. And now he's coming to Region 2 DVD on October 23rd when Fox will release both The Omen (2006 version) and The Omen 30th Anniversary Special Edition on devilish double-disc DVD.
Not only that, but also to be relased on the same day are digitally remastered versions of all three original Omen sequels, Damien: Omen II, Omen III: The Final Conflict and the little-see Omen IV: The Awakening. That’s a lot of Damien.
John Moore’s reimagining of the 1976 classic The Omen stars Liev Schreiber and Julia Stiles as Robert and Katherine Thorn the unfortunate couple who adopt the son of a jackal. With the help and hindrance from such fine actors as David Thewlis, Mia Farrow, Pete Postlethwaite and Michael Gambon, it’s not long before Robert Thorn must confront the awful truth that Damien is no ordinary child. He is in fact, the son of the devil…
The DVD special features include a commentary by John Moore, Glen Williamson and Dan Zimmerman, a 50 minute ‘making of’ featurette, two extended scenes, and an alternate ending.
The Omen Pentology (£59.99 RRP), which includes both Omen's as well as the original three sequels is also released on 23rd October.

23rd Mar 04 Forget the Ed Gein movie – this is where its at. Deranged is darkly hilarious but also deeply disturbing account of the nefarious activities of the same person, but is executed with much more skill than the Ed Gein movie.
