Richard Donner had quite the film career in his lifetime and we wanted to honor that by spending a month reflecting on some of his best films (and one film he got to re-edit after it was cruelly taken away from him). We kick things off with his first critical and commercial breakthrough, “The Omen,” starring Gregory Peck as a diplomat / ambassador whose son may or may not be (but totally is) the Antichrist. It’s a well-paced horror film that never overstays its welcome, and it manages to pepper a few shocking kills throughout its runtime. That’s not to say the film is without its share of flaws, and we go into those as well. An overall compelling start to our month honoring the late Richard Donner.
