Taking The Fall #009: The Omen

Haven’t rinsed my TTF pic collection for a while, so here’s a classic: the Antichrist’s stepmom Katherine Thorn (Lee Remick) goes for a burton in the excellent horror The Omen (original, natch). Beautifully executed stunt and FX, beautifully edited together, with a beautiful use of tension. Plus it inspired Kubrick (The Shining) and Jim Cameron (Aliens), so kudos to director Richard Donner.
