When The Omen was released in it was a real rival to The Exorcist , but the film series that it inspired soon degenerated into a soppy formula.
Intending to do a Herod by killing every male child born on a certain day, Damien unleashes a load of special effects, obliging the priests to dust off the seven daggers of Megiddo yet again.
Learning of his assassins and killing all but DeCarlo over time, he proceeds to mold Reynolds's young son Peter into a disciple by playing on the boy's desire for a father figure. After the alignment of stars in the Cassiopeia constellation on March 24, , generating what is described as a second Star of Bethlehem , Damien realizes that it is a sign of the Second Coming and orders his followers to kill all boys born in England on the morning of March 24, to prevent the Christ's return to power.
A week after a string of 31 infant deaths, Reynolds encounters DeCarlo and he reveals Damien's true identity to her while giving her evidence of the murders. The next night during sex, Damien sodomizes Reynolds.
The following morning she discovers Damien's birthmark. Damien tells Peter to follow DeCarlo, resulting in Damien learning that his advisor, Harvey Dean, had concealed the date of his son's birth when Peter reports that DeCarlo visited Dean's wife Barbara and revealed her husband's role in the infant murders. Dean refuses to kill his son and makes preparations to flee the country, only to return home and be killed by his wife, who has fallen under Damien's control and murdered their child.
DeCarlo later visits Reynolds and reveals that Peter is now under Damien's influence and that the real Christ child is now beyond Damien's reach.

The plan backfires when Damien spots DeCarlo first and uses Peter as a human shield against the dagger.
