BIQ Guide To Remakes: The Omen

Original: 1976
Remake: 2006
Best Version: Original

For reasons I’m unlikely to be able to distil, in the amount of space I allocate to these Remake Guides, religious hokum was scary thirty years ago but today just seems silly. Maybe that says more about me and my sacrilegious lack of faith as an adult than the quality of these films, but whatever the case, the original Omen scared the crap out of me as a youngster, whilst the remake was a bore that felt like it had been made thirty years too late.
