Hospital personnel persuades US Ambassador Robert Thorn to substitute a newborn baby whose mother dies in childbirth for his own stillborn son. By the age of five the child, Damien, seems to be exerting a malevolent influence on the Thorn household, suffering a violent fit when he is taken to church and causing his nanny to hang herself. Thorn searches for an answer to his son’s behaviour and meets maverick priest Father Brennan, who tries to convince him that Damien is in fact the Antichrist and they must stop him at all costs. The Ambassador at first dismisses this as the crazy rantings of a religious maniac, but subsequent events suggest that maybe the priest has a point.

This is an atmospheric and dark horror thriller. Also there is some great acting from the young Damian.
