    Let's Remake The Omen Remake

    Despite being rebooted less than 10 years ago and with an upcoming television series in development, 20th Century Fox has decided that we need a new take on THE OMEN and will be rebooting the acclaimed horror series.

    While the 2006 version from director John Moore did gross over $100 million, many disliked that it was essentially a carbon copy of the original film with minor updates to contemporary political references.

    THE OMEN was originally released at a time of paranoia within the Catholic Church that spawned countless horror movies like this and THE EXORCIST. We have yet to see a horror movie in that same vein that has been as scary as either of those films, not even the sequels within those franchises. A television series about Damien growing up and becoming evil sounds intriguing in a BATES MOTEL kind of way, but I don't know how they could make another feature film without being a retread of a retread.

    Here's hoping Platinum Dunes has a good idea for this one.

    Didn't really need the link everything you've posted here is in the link aside from the preview of The Omen (1976 ). Just cite Joblo for the article and BD for breaking the news

    The link comes up automatically when you cut/paste anything from Joblo. Didn't think it was a big deal

    Besides a lot of members like a link to click on to see it at/from the source.

    I liked the original. Hated the remake. I'd like to see a proper remake and not just a "carbon copy".

    You can't remake The Omen. That series was damn good and a product of its time. I'm not including Omen IV btw for obvious reasons.

    What the remake had going for it is that it was released on 06/06/06, which I saw that day and still have the ticket.

    I didn't hate the remake, but wasn't impressed with it either. Sort of a "meh" movie for me. The original is great.

    I think they should remake Deliver Us from Evil...that's been out for over 3 days now and is in need of an updating. A fresh start if you will.

    The original is all that matters. IMO...fuck everything and anything else.

    No way.

    The original Omen all the way. IMO one of the greatest horror films ever.
