A wealthy diplomat learns that his adopted son, Damien, is the son of Satan.
US Ambassador Robert Thorn (Gregory Peck) is persuaded to substitute a newborn baby whose mother has died 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. Thorn searches for an answer to his son’s behaviour and meets maverick priest Father Brennan (Patrick Troughton), who tries to convince him that Damien is, in fact, the Antichrist. The Ambassador at first dismisses this as the rantings of a religious maniac, but subsequent events suggest that maybe the priest has a point.
Starring Gregory Peck, Lee Remick, David Warner, Billie Whitelaw
