    An enjoyable slice of 80s occult hokum that picks up exactly where The Final Conflict left off Better written than it needs to be you can practically hear Jerry Goldsmith's Oscar winning score kick in every time another bizarre murder takes place Speaking of murders this book's loaded with 'em The body count is impressive and the whole thing builds to a downbeat apocalyptic climax involving Biblical prophecy the Middle East and atomic weapons Best remembered for the nasty method in which Damien's son is born Omen IV Armageddon won't win any prizes for originality depth or scares but as a nostalgic example of large scale Satanic horror it goes down pretty damn smooth

    What I took most from this book was how does cow shit end up on the wheel of an aeroplane and would you be bothered if you were stuck to that wheel as it came in to land?And something about the end of the world

    EH it was ok but sort of lack luster Also weak ending


  4. John Henery John Henery says:

    This was actually a really good book Basically Damien is reborn since his soul wasn't destroyed at the end of the 3rd book and he continues to bring about Armageddon A good read if your a fan of the Omen

    Yuck The “original” novel in the Omen series is by the author of one of the film novelizations and he really seems lost without a screenwriter to come up with ideas for him He seems to fall back on a lot of ideas from the films and they come as no great surprise to anyone who has seen them in theory this book is for fans of the films I love Richard Donner's 1976 original “The Omen” it's a masterpiece and “Damien The Omen II” is a decent entry so why didn't I have fun with this? First this “The Omen IV” is not the same as the late 80s TV movie “The Omen IV The Awakening” that one was an unrelated TV pilot about Damien having an evil daughter This book is about Damien's evil son I only fuzzily remember last real Omen movie “The Final Conflict” which had Sam Neil as the antichrist but I guess that has adult Damien balling a British lady reporter After the happy ending on that film this 1982 book suggests she was told she had a tumor but it turned out to be a devil baby which the satan folks took and raised So the book takes place when we flash forward to “The Year 2000” when the devil kid is 18 and hangs out in the same fortress of solitude that Sam Neil did in the 3rd film The plot is not really a plot so much as it is a series of “scary” deaths Monks and others tell various important people about how the antichrist is reborn and how the big old armageddon is coming and these people poke around a little only to be killed by accidents or by a dog The dog gets the same annoying description each time it turns up and I guess it needs a bath There's some business about an ambassador and tensions in the middle east threatening to erupt into nuclear war Yes good old nuclear war This leads into the dated Reagan era view of 2000 Were there tension in the Middle East then and now? Sure that was an easy prediction But in this 2000 it is largely due to The Soviet Union People also listen to the radio or read the paper to get news there is a line about the TV news being “extended” to cover a tragedy 24 hour news not being foreseen here Characters listen to tape decks in their cars I did that too in 2000 but most folks had CD players which already existed in 1982 Now I can't really fault this book for not attempting futurisms and predictions mostly because this is meant to be horror focused and attempts at science fiction probably would have distracted from that purpose The problem is that the horror is very pedestrian and the anorexic prose just keeps it all dragging along like the throwaway drugstore paperback it is Does it read fast? It can't help but read fast since there's nothing in it No content no wind resistance There are some so called characters who have names and appearances and some defining traits but they are flat and you don't mind when they get killed “Armageddon 2000” sounds similar to Alberto de Martino's sterling “Omen” knockoff “Holocaust 2000” is also an example of Tell Don't Show writing passively explaining vanilla life details of people when they turn up in a vain attempt to humanize them This was a big reminder of why I don't tend to read 70s and 80s paperbacks as a lot of the ones I have tried on have problems similar to this book Thank your lucky stars they never filmed this book it would have put any viewer into a coma Oh And one of the first deaths is double extra un scary since we are told straight out that the victim's soul has been redeemed before a big concrete Jesus crushes her In a Christian horror universe there's nothing all that scary about knowing that God loves you know and that heaven is totes for realz

    The Omen series is just full of missed opportunities This fourth book which is of no relation to the film Omen IV The Awakening feels just like a rehash of everything that has happened thus far only this time it's with Damien's son who was born under rather unsavory circumstances The rud re born Nazarene is still nowhere to be found and everyone is just trying to kill Damien's son The death scenes are entertaining and memorable and really I guess that's all The Omen series really has to offer

  9. Ryan Lieske Ryan Lieske says:

    Silly stuff and not nearly as wild as I had heard Still some great over the top horror moments and the ending it pretty cool

    PlotWas it an accident that Kate Reynolds got pregnant and gave birth to Damien's son out her buttocks?Was it murder when pretty much all the priests involved in Damien's planned execution have been killed in bizarre accident's?Was it a coincidence that ambassador Phillip Brennan has been plagued by visions of horror around the same time he's given a daunting task?Or are all of these signs of Omens?ReviewWhat to say about the fourth installment in a long running franchise? Well let's look at what is did right first shall we?Brennan is pretty much our main character He's not a religious man but by the end is a believer While not the strongest of the main characters I will give him points for being involved over the course of the story and is given information about halfway through involving the anti Christ The Devil's Grandson whom is only known as The Abomination Even though he becomes a true believer at the end it's not like everything was unloaded on him in the last twenty pagesAs for the new anti Christ He's a brat During the intro of this book Kate Reynolds gives birth to this supposed supreme ruler out of her backside nether region Not even joking Then the story jumps eighteen years later and this Brat wants world domination Paul Buher wanted to stick to Damien's original plan That being to have control over the world This kid is ready for world war III to occurOh yeah Paul Buher finally returns in this franchise and even if he's a bit older he still has the same ideologies as Damien once did and he tries to follow them even with the Brat of the Devil trying to mess everything upFather De Carlo also returns and this time he sends one of his fellow monks to give the letter to BrennanThere is a twist in the characters at the end that I actually won't spoil because it is so minor but it was totally obvious to me for some reason It involves Brennan's wifeThe climax of the book is sort of tense It had good tension going there then all of the sudden it is just released and the ending approachesOne thing I will gladly give the author McGill is that he didn’t have to follow any screenplay in order to write this book He was given room to breathe and expand the surroundings of this book I got a strong vibe of The Omen and The Final Conflict in here which is a great thing I don't despise part two but I know this series could've done without it I know he meets Buher and Neff in that installment but they didn't have to make a movie to justify why those characters were there And where the Hell has Neff gone anyway?GoreThere are uite a few gruesome and horrific killsA woman is brutally crushed by a statue of Christ a reporter woman is attacked by a dog and then the abomination childbrat rips and tears at the back of her neck Like a dog a man is buried alive in a grave by dogs There is I believe but I don't remember them off handOverall ThoughtsThat's one of the problems with this book It's sort forgettable I saw the movies first so when I read the first three books I had the movie's in mind Now here comes another installment that wasn't made into a movie and I had no mental notes to follow itStill what I read was a well written fast pace brutal blasphemous book that is creepy and downright disturbing Sure the climax and ending could've been better but I still highly recommend this book Especially since the actual fourth movie is a piece of crapOverall Rating 35 out of 5 Closer to a 3 out of 5 than a 4 out of 5 I'm afraid
