You would think that after three "Omen" films, they would have pretty much wrung all they could out of the Satanic series.
After all, the third movie was titled "The Final Conflict."But, unfortunately, the folks at Fox have started things all over again with the made-for-television "Omen IV: The Awakening," which premieres tonight at 7 p.m. on Ch. 13.
You may recall (but probably not) that Damien Thorn, the son of Satan, was killed off in the last movie. But what you probably didn't know is that he fathered a daughter - by a nun, no less - before meeting his demise.
That daughter, Delia (Asia Vieria), is adopted by a politically prominent family. (The devil has his eyes on the White House again.) Along the way, the evil little girl causes several gruesome deaths (it's rather violent for TV) and gives people the creeps.
It's certainly nothing original. And it really isn't particularly scary.
The only thing truly frightening about "Omen IV: The Awakening" is that the conclusion leaves open the possibility of "Omen V."
