10. The Omen 

Release Year: 1978

Director: Richard Donner

Starring: Gregory Peck, Lee Remick, Harvey Stephens, David Warner

The Omen When a U.S. ambassador and his wife adopt a child, things go terribly wrong. Damien, the adopted child seems to always be around when some disturbing event happens, some as bad as death. The Omen is a cult classic from the 1970’s starring Gregory Peck as Robert Thorn.

To say this film has inspired a few films in the supernatural horror genre would be a gross understatement. The original like any good horror film inspired sequels and a remake three decades later. If you consider yourself a horror fan, The Omen is must see material.

Depending on whom you ask, the David Seltzer written story turned into one of the best horror films of all time by many critics’ standards.
