I find this 1976 movie about the birth of the Antichrist one of the most chilling movies ever.

The scene where evil child Damien (Harvey Stephens) is taken to a safari park by his ‘mother’  (Lee Remick) is particularly distressing, especially when his presence agitates the baboons in their enclosure.

Apparently, to make the baboons attack the car, a zoo official was in the backseat of the car with their leader baboon, which made all the baboons outside go frantic.

The Omen is showing tonight – Tuesday 31st July – on Film 4 at 11.25pm
