Rupert Pupkin has been posting many other film fan's favorite underrated horror movies. Some of the titles brought me back to a time when I was around 13-14 and my friends and I would rent crappy horror VHS tapes from the video store. There are 5 Wednesdays this October, and every Wednesday I'm going to post musings on a different horror movie. These are by no means great movies, in fact, all of them are pretty terrible, but they stick with me for one reason or another.
*My family actually owned all three of the original Omen movies. So I had already seen them. When I came across this, I was like "Oh man, I wonder if my sister knows about this?" Well she did, and it was avoided for a reason.
*It's like someone who had just got done watching movies like The Exorcist, Bad Seed, and The Poltergeist and was like "little girls are so much scarier than little boys!" "Let's make an Omen movie about a girl!"
*The acting in this is atrocious, especially the girl. I know when children are in sensitive movies, the director sometimes will have them shoot things out of sequence so that they are not exposed to anything bad, or they give them a totally made up story line to follow instead. I felt like they didn't do any of that here. They just told the girl to "go stand over there." and shot.
*Asia Vieira, who plays little Delia was in Flash Forward, if you remember that show.
*I'm still not 100% sure what went on in the jumbled mess that was this movie's ending.
Have you seen The Omen IV: The Awakening? What did you think?
