Now this is a classic tale with great atmosphere, great acting and of course a fantastic tale. It's about a young couple who desperately want children. The wife miscarries, and the father is approached by a Priest. See another baby boy was born, and the mother died in childbirth so they could take in this boy and raise him as their son. He agrees, and shortly after their Nanny hangs herself. Of course bad things seem to happen wherever Damien goes and they start to wonder who the real parents of Damien were. It's got some memorable deaths, it's really well made and it's a very easy watch. Definitely one that any horror fan should watch.
