This child actor had no idea he was in a horror movie


Based on the 1976 film of the same name, “The Omen” is about Robert Thorn, an American diplomat stationed in Italy whose wife sadly endures a stillbirth. With Katherine Thorn still unconscious after the traumatic birth, the Catholic priest chaplain at the hospital, Father Spiletto, suggests that Robert adopt a newly orphaned newborn. Robert accepts and claims the baby as his own, unbeknownst to his wife. The duo name the child Damien and do their best to raise him in a loving home. In the years that followed, Robert’s career soared, becoming Deputy Ambassador to the Court of St. James in the United Kingdom, moving his family to a magnificent estate. Unfortunately, as Damien gets older, suspicious events begin to unfold in the family, including the gruesome death of Damien’s first nanny at his birthday party.

Damien later attacks Katherine, the zoo animals react violently to the sight of Damien, he gains a satanic nanny and a fiercely defensive Rottweiler, and carnage seems to follow the family wherever they go. A member of the clergy involved in Damien’s birth approaches Robert to tell him the truth about his son and it turns out that Damien’s mother is a jackal and he is the son of the Devil, the Incarnate Antichrist. . While both Robert and Katherine have bonded with Damien and consider him their son, they struggle to come to terms with the truth about his lineage, which ultimately leads to their demise. Everything that happens in “The Omen” is because of Damien, but director John Moore managed to keep young Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick from learning the truth about his character, fearing it would be too much to handle.
