Well, it looks like none other than The Shining and The Stand author Stephen King is calling for a new entry in The Omen series.
He writes: “Time for a new OMEN movie, one for the Age of Trump.”
Check out his tweet below.
He’s joking, I’m sure. But all the same, it make sense to me. Bring it on!
The original film sports an 86% approval rating over on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: The Omen eschews an excess of gore in favor of ramping up the suspense — and creates an enduring, dread-soaked horror classic along the way.
It centers on an American diplomat Robert (Gregory Peck) adopts Damien (Harvey Stephens) when his wife, Katherine, delivers a stillborn child. After Damien’s first nanny hangs herself, Father Brennan warns Robert that Damien will kill Katherine’s unborn child. Shortly thereafter, Brennan dies and Katherine miscarries when Damien pushes her off a balcony. As more people around Damien die, Robert investigates Damien’s background and realizes his adopted son may be the Antichrist.
