Ebert gives 3 stars (a thumbs up) to the remake of “The Omen.” I hadn’t planned on seeing it since the original was so awesome. But, perhaps I’ll check it out.
I’d say Ebert’s got this right:
I’ve observed before that when it comes to dealing with demons and suchlike, Roman Catholics have the market cornered. Preachers of other faiths can foam and foment all they want about satanic cults, but when it comes to knowing the ground rules and reading ominous signs, what you want at the bedside is a priest who knows his way around an exorcism.
