PLUS Q&A WITH BECKY DARKE FROM DON'T POINT THAT HORROR AT ME
Richard Donner. 1976
“Your child is the devil, Mr. Thorn!” This deliciously unsettling horror blockbuster from the recently deceased Richard Donner boasts a cast that would be more at home in a David Lean epic. This along with a grippingly great script from David Seltzer and a score from Jerry Goldsmith elevates this spookio yarn to an out and out classic. It’s no wonder that after its release the name Damien seemed less in demand and that wrought iron railings sales went through the roof. Peck! Remick! Warner! Troughton! Rumpole of the Bailey!
