Corrected entry: In the scene at the Military Academy, just after Lance Henriksen has introduced himself to the boys, you will see a platoon of boys about to march off. You will see the guy holding the baton about to move off. As he twirls the baton, you can see the top of the baton fall off to the ground.

Correction: First off, the baton leader does not twirl the baton at all. Secondly, the bottom of the baton falls off, not the top. Also, I hardly see why you think that was a mistake, the baton was apparently archaic and about to fall apart at an instantaneous random moment, not even needing a small applicable force.

Corrected entry: There is a strange sequence that I'm not sure is a plot or continuity flaw: The doctor calls Mr. Thorn to setup a meeting about Damien's blood test. The doctor is then cut in half in the hospital elevator. They immediately cut to Mr. Thorn opening the newspaper and is shocked at the top news story. How fast is the press? Thorn reacts like he just found out. Surely the medical staff would have notified him of what happened. There is no other indication of how much time has passed.


Correction: Actually it is neither plot or continuity flaw. Mr Thorn isn't reacting to the tragedy at the hospital. He is wanting a complete report of the accident at the Thorn labs.

Corrected entry: In the first movie, Robert Thorn asks Bugenhagen for proof that Damien is the Antichrist and Bugenhagen tells him to look for the birthmark on Damien's scalp. But why didn't Bugenhagen simply take Thorn to see Yigael's Wall, since this movie establishes that it bears Damien's face and is the final thing that convinced him?

Correction: Bugenhagen didn't find the wall until after Thorn died. Thorn died at the end of the first film. The second starts with Bugenhagen racing to his mate having just seen the wall. He takes him there then they both die.

Corrected entry: At the start of the film, Karl Bugenhagen wants his archeologist friend Michael to deliver a package which contains the daggers to Damein's uncle in Chicago. This is impossible, since Bugenhagen already gave the daggers to Damein's father, who was then fatally shot at the end of the first film. So how was he able to get them back?

Correction: This should have been explained in the movie, probably, but in the book version Bugenhagen was able to persuade the authorities that the daggers were his property (presumably by verifying them as an archeological find) and since they were not needed as evidence they were returned to him. How he got around the fact that they made their way into Thorn's hands is unexplained.

Factual error: After the raven attacks journalist Joan Hart, pecking her eyes out, she blindly staggers into the highway and is run down by a Mack tractor-trailer. As the truck locks up its brakes and strikes her, we see Joan Hart levitate straight up into the air, arc completely over the truck's massive front-end (even over the cab of the truck), and finally impact the top of the freight trailer, which is about 13 feet in height. More than merely absurd-looking, this sequence utterly defies Newtonian physics. From her standing position at ground level, Joan Hart should have been instantly pulverized on impact and launched many meters down the road in the same direction the truck is traveling.

Trivia: Originally, Damien was going to be 15 instead of 12. He would also have had a girlfriend, so that when he discovered that he was the Antichrist, he would be torn between love and destiny. This idea was ultimately scrapped.

More trivia for Damien: Omen II

Question: When Damien killed Mark, he screamed and started to cry. Was he truly upset that he killed him, or was he putting on a show for his aunt and uncle?

Answer: Damien is still very conflicted, having thought of himself as a regular boy his entire life. While he is slowly embracing his nature, he hasn't lost his emotions, and he's crying because he's actually sad that he had to kill his friend.

Answer: He was truly upset, as he had not come to terms with being the Antichrist yet.
