Audio problem: Near the end of the movie, when the Ambassador is dragging the child up the aisle of the church, in several spots you hear the child scream but his mouth isn't open. (01:45:35)
Robert Thorn (Gregory Peck) finds the triple 6 on his son, Damien's head, beneath his hair. The nanny tries to kill Thorn but he kills her. Thorn rushes to a church with his son and the police pursue. In the church, he's about to kill his son with the daggers and the police shoot. For a moment, we don't see if Thorn killed his son or not. The scene changes to a funeral and we see young Damien turn around and smile to the camera...
Mrs Baylock: Have no fear, little one... I am here to protect thee.
Trivia: The smile that Damien gives at the very end wasn't scripted. Originally, Damien was supposed to "look really mean," but Harvey Stephens couldn't keep a straight face: he started to smile, then laugh. Richard Donner decided that the smile made Damien look even more evil, so it stayed in the movie.
