Although producer, Harvey Bernhard claimed not to have been keen on this film, stating that it was not as easy to make an evil teenager seem terrifying as it was to make an evil child terrifying and that "you need to tone them [sequels] down, not up", he still had fond memories of making the film. An example of this is in his audio commentary to the film, in which he reveals that, during Bugenhagen's mad drive through Acre, Israel which kicks off the film, actor Leo McKern was so in character that he fell out of the jeep that he was driving!

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 »

The original version was released uncut with a "Not under 16" rating in German cinemas in 1978, the 1983 VHS release was uncut as well. The 1992 VHS re-release was cut (ca. 3 minutes) due to the fact that in the 1980s the uncut version was put on the index for youth endangering media. Only in 2001 the film was removed from that index and the film was re-released uncut, again with a "Not under 16" rating. See more »
Damien:Omen 2 is a very enjoyable sequel to The Omen in my opinion the first is better but i did enjoy this also. This film was released in 1978 2 years after the first and it tells the story of Damien the Anti-Christ who is now age 12 he is starting to understand his duty in the line of Satan whilst a strange crow eliminates any people who know his real identity and are seen enemies in the eyes of Satan. This film is not the best in the Omen series but it is a very watchable film, it isn't a film that will bore you to death and it isn't a film that will keep you on the end of your seat for 100 minutes but i do recommend it to the people who are interested in these films it is a clever entry in the omen franchise
