The Omen - 6.6.06

Just got back from watching the The Omen (2006) remake of the (1976) The Omen, and since it was released today, tuesday, 6.6.06, my fiance thought it'd be great fun to catch it on this fancy numbered day.

It was pretty good, it made me jump a few times (but I'm a wuss, so...), got the juices flowing, had nice art direction, and it was great to see how the deaths of those around Damien played out.

I was taken back and excited to see that Mia Farrow from Rosemary's Baby played Mrs. Baylock, Damien's 'new' nanny in the film, great hommage to a classic!

Anyhow, a couple links below if your interested... ohh and there were some VFX in this flick, kudos to Warwick Campbell over @ Cinesite!
(they did the the cool as hell 'death scenes')
