Damien: Omen II by Joseph Howard

Damien: Omen II
by Joseph Howard
1978 Signet

The second film follows Damien into puberty, where he learns of his destiny to become the Anti-Christ while in military school.  The film was only notable for the extended "killed by mysterious forces" sequences, kind of a precursor to the Final Destination films, and the look of some of the cast.

Where the first book had more than the movie, this one somehow has less.  The killings are rushed through, and some of the prose reads like a children's book.  Hopefully Gordon McGill picks things up for the rest of the series.

Paperback from AbeBooks
