The Final Conflict (1981)

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

Damien Thorn, now an adult, runs a powerful corporation that makes money from famine. He is appointed ambassador to England through his personal connection with the president after dispensing with the current one through his demonic power. Meanwhile, a group of monks come into possession of the seven daggers that can kill him. An alignment of stars indicates the second coming of Christ, whom they locate and vow to protect from Damien and his followers. The "final conflict" takes place in an abandoned medieval monastery. Filled with the usual quota of grisly deaths, including some involving infants, but manages to wrap up the religious drama in grandiose fashion.
