The son of Satan. That is what Robert Thorn (Gregory Peck) begins to suspect about his son when a series of coincidences occur that challenges whether his child is normal, unfortunately learning too late exactly what his son is. What makes Damien Thorn a particularly frightening villain is his ability to maintain a sense of innocence when there is pure evil running through his veins. Like any masterful villain, he can manipulate and instigate circumstances to create doubt. The fact that Damien is still a child makes such manipulation that much simpler by preying off of the familial aspects of those around him. He poses as a child that is incapable of evil, who is innocent of the destructiveness around him, when it is him who has managed to puppeteer all those around him. Yet every once in a while within The Omen there are instances that he isn’t able to hide behind the innocent child image, such as the scene his family attempts to bring him into a church. See what happens HERE.
