Story: A young American woman by the name of Margaret (Nell Tiger Free) is sent to Rome for the purpose of taking her vows as a nun, but later discovers a terrible plot that shakes her faith in the church. we are exploring The First Omen Movie here.

Review: But how did Damien Thorn, who was branded Antichrist and Satan’s son become? This is an origin story of Arkasha Stevenson’s that acts as a nice retake on The Omen franchise through its prequel to The Omen (1976), which is also the sixth film in the series. What makes this prequel stand out from other horror movies?

The First Omen movie does not follow the usual tropes and scare tactics alone. It starts like slow burning mystery where Margaret begins life shattering experiences resulting from gaslighting and loss of faith. But what if those who should have protected their faith became its enemies? In contrast, here, it is more inward-looking rather than outwardly directed; so don’t expect another The Nun (2018) kind of commercially horrifying movie; you might find it boring, unproductive and dragging.

So again, First Omen is something different from many horror movies if you like mature fear instead of cheap jumps scares. You will experience silence louder than any sound; dark nights scarier than any ghost and goblin story; faceless men haunting your dreams versus Christianized orphans of magic-factory history but only one tale could dare whisper—secularism kills fanatics more than anything else! It simply takes away their control over them. “They make you feel like there’s something wrong with you if you don’t do what they want.” Writing reflects deeper understanding about people and religious fundamentalists’ worldview.

From these few scenes set during early 70s, one can appreciate its female gaze, cinematography as well as retro music which are both fantastic right from their opening credits. The treatment here is weird but still none of the supernatural agonies in it feel exploitative, which is rare in the genre. This is a strong female lead battling demons of various kinds including social ones. Her plea for help at the end feels personal. Camera work should also be commended for making Rome look so hauntingly empty at night that you would never dare go near those dark, lonely streets.

Horror movies with lesser-known casts are generally considered to lack acting depth by most people. However, there are some notable performances from actors such as Bill Nighy and others. Nonetheless, the lead role is perfectly done by Nell Tiger Free who remains steely and curious throughout the entire film. Ralph Ineson and Maria Caballero’s supporting act was equally commendable.

First Omen is not your typical superficial thriller that only aims to thrill through cheap scares. It will make sense if you don’t like fear to be petty or something like that.
