American diplomat Robert Thorn (Gregory Peck) adopts Damien (Harvey Stephens) unbeknownst to his wife, Katherine (Lee Remick), who delivers a stillborn child. After Damien’s first nanny hangs herself, Father Brennan (Patrick Troughton) warns Robert, now ambassador to Great Britain, that Damien will kill Katherine’s unborn child. Katherine miscarries when Damien (on a tricycle) knocks her off a balcony. As more people around Damien die, Robert, with the help of photographer, Keith Jennings (David Warner), investigates and discovers that the adopted child may in fact be the Antichrist.
Acclaimed director, Richard Donner, owes his career to this gem of a film that helped him break from the confines of television to the big screen. Join us as we discuss the incredible ensemble of cast and crew members that help elevate this prophetic biblical drama to the heights of iconic horror films, spawning a neverending brood of satanic offspring to this very day. Listen, as Johnny Has the Keys deciphers the ancient tomes and opens the door for a newborn child with a very special birthmark to cross into the realm of man.
