Seven years later, 13-year-old Damien attends military school alongside his cousin, Mark (Lucas Donat), and spends lots of time with his adoptive parents, Uncle Richard (William Holden) and Aunt Ann (Lee Grant).… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Damien is obviously wearing out his welcome."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"While it has its problem it's a generally entertaining and creepy thriller."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"... the worst of the original Omen trilogy."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, Cinefantastique
"If only most sequels were this good."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"Only a shell of the original, but still creepy and full of quality kills!"
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
"This sequel lacks the bravura pacing of the original, and though it tries to maintain the biblical tone in following the adolescence of its antichrist anti-hero, immense problems emerge."
‑ , Time Out
"...comes off as a surprisingly organic follow-up to its 1976 predecessor..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"It plumbs the same idiotic religious dread as its 1976 predecessor, with a higher and even more gratuitous body count."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"Proves once and for all that the love of sequels is actually the root of all evil."
‑ Ali Catterall, Film4
"Damien is really just more of the same as The Omen."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"Damien-Omen II though it's as foolish as the first film, is rather more fun to watch and sometimes very stylish-looking."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"As the teenage Damien, Jonathan Scott-Taylor works wonders with the role"
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"Not a great film like the original, but this remains a wildly entertaining sequel full of memorable death scenes."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, FulvueDrive-in.com
"Lots of laughs...all unintended"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"...it is a mess, but it's actually very engrossing. There's not a minute of the film that isn't watchable..."
‑ Ted Prigge, rec.arts.movies.reviews
