Allan Arbus, who plays one of the Thorn Industry employees who gets asphyxiated by fumes at the plant, was also the recurring character Sidney Friedman on MASH when this film was released ( 1978). See more »
When Damien and his cousin Mark meet their new platoon leader, he is introduced as a "Sergeant"and clearly has the appropriate insignia, but Mark calls him "sir", which isn't appropriate and should have been corrected. Even though it is a military school, the school officials are wearing Army uniforms. See more »
Beginning again with the mad dash of Bugenhagen(Leo McKern) through the Haifa port under the very fitting theme of Jerry Goldsmith, this film contains all of the chills of the original as Damien learns about who he really is. It has one thing that I particularly liked that moment of indecision,when Damien, in a mirror of Jesus asks himself, why is it me. The moment when whatever innocence is in him is finally lost. William Holden and Lee Grant are excellent as his aunt and uncle, and there are several actors who cement their acting careers in the parts they play in this film. I am referring to Robert Foxworth for one, and Lance Henrickson for another. Silvia Sydney is one of of her last roles as Aunt Marion (smelling of Lilac or lavender) and the one really weak role was Nicholas Pryor as the director of the Thorn Museum. I am truly sorry for those people who did not care for this film, as it is head and shoulders above most of the Anti-Christ movies made. If you liked the first one this is a must see.
