Damien: Omen II (1978)

Twentieth Century-Fox Film
Directed by Don Taylor
My rating: 2.5 stars out of 4
IMDb Wikipedia
(Blu-ray, Fox)

Damien, now a teenager attending a prestigious military academy, slowly realizes his true identity as the Antichrist. Destined to inherit a fortune in his adopted father's company, his secret followers insure he gets it by murdering everyone who stands in his way. William Holden follows in the footsteps of Gregory Peck by realizing who Damien is and trying to kill him. Extremely well made on Chicago-area locations with another fine Jerry Goldsmith score. However, the deaths are becoming a bit more predictable, and tiresome, and the character arcs too similar to the first movie; engrossing entertainment nonetheless.
