Is The Omen the best Horror movie ever made?
Now buckle up. I want to introduce or reintroduce you to The omen best Horror movie ever.
Fans of the horror genre, are forever searching for that really scary film that makes their spine tingle and hair stand on end. Sometimes the films they are able to find are good stuff that are quite entertaining and suspense filled. But quite often, these films don’t quite deliver that deep thrill and tingle that we’ve come to expect.
Best horror film ever, you’d have to go back to the year 1976! Yes, you read right. But what’s so special
about that year? Well, that was the year the most awesome flick ever made from the genre was released to the unsuspecting fans. They lived never to forget it. The name of this cool customer is “The Omen” (Not the remake Please!) The original.
Directed by Richard Donner and starring Gregory Peck, Lee Remick, David Warner, Billie Whitelaw, Patrick Troughton and Harvey Stephens,
this movie scared the hairs off of me the first, second, third and fourth time
I dared to watch it. To be honest it scares me everytime I watch it. It just
never loses its sting. But the strange thing is that you find yourself hypnotically craving for more.

Don’t believe me? Let me give you a few facts to prove that this movie probably pissed off the devil himself!
1. Actor Gregory Peck who was the movie’s lead, and a film executive were flying in two separate planes. Both planed were struck by lightning!
