Six-Six-Sixth: How to Watch the Omen Movies in Order, Including The First Omen

Our horror experts conceived this guide to watching the Omen movies in order—including The First Omen. It’s all for you, Damien lovers!

Is anybody nervous about there being a six-six-sixth Omen movie? In case you landed here accidentally, The Omen is the 1976 movie about a little boy who may or may not be (read: is totally) the Antichrist.

Well, nothing happened when the sixth Exorcist movie came out. And the Omen franchise already tried some 666 stuff with the remake (The Omen, 2006) and nothing happened. So there’s nothing to fear—unless The First Omen sucks. I guess we’ll find that out on Friday.

Here’s all you need to know to watch the first five Omen movies before you see the prequel. If it’s your second time watching the films, you can use the same information to watch the Omen movies in chronological order (i.e. prequel first).

What are the Omen movies?

In 1976, Richard Donner’s The Omen harnessed some of The Exorcist’s Satanic panic with its cheek-pinchingly cute killer kid, Damien Thorn. A commercial and critical success, The Omen spawned three increasingly disappointing sequels and a ho-hum 2006 remake. A sixth Omen movie, a prequel called The First Omen, hits theaters on Friday, April 5, 2024.

List of the Omen movies in order

Where to Watch The Omen (1976)

The Omen (1976) movie poster shows young Damien in a graveyard.

The original is almost always the best. That’s true with Richard Donner’s O.G. The Omen, which resonates with creeping dread, punctuated by shocking death scenes. And big-ups to the Golden Globe–nominated Harvey Spencer Stevens as the supremely creepy cherub, Damien “The Antichrist” Thorn.

Where to Watch Damien: Omen II (1978)

The poster for Damien: Omen II shows the face of a slightly older Damien. One of his eyes glows red.

This is the best of the sequels, if only for its execution of several interesting kill scenes. Jonathan Scott-Taylor could’ve been creepier as a junior-high prep schooler who doesn’t know he’s the Antichrist. So the deaths carry the film, almost to the point that Damien: Omen II has a kind of slasher-movie energy.

Where to watch Omen III: The Final Conflict (1981)

The poster for Omen III: The Final Conflict shows an adult Damien in a suit and tie.

The great Sam Neill plays Damien Thorn, now an adult. After the first two films’ alluded to Thorn’s potential political ascendence, Damien is now the US Ambassador to the United Kingdom—just like his adoptive father in the first film. That’s scary. Even scarier is that Damien’s final conflict entails slaughtering male newborns King Solomon-style to preempt Jesus’s Second Coming.

Where to watch Omen IV: The Awakening (1991)

The poster for Omen IV: The Awakening shows a young girl with the head of a young girl looming behind her. The head has one glowing red eye.

The fourth Omen movie was a last-ditch effort to revive the series. Unfortunately, as a TV movie with a recycled story, a new devil-baby (Delia), and little blood, Omen IV: The Awakening didn’t have a prayer of recapturing the original’s black magic and keeping the Omen series viable. Or interesting.

Where to watch The Omen (2006)

The poster for The Omen (2006) is entirely red except for a black silhouette of young Damien casting the shadow of an inverted cross.

This almost too-faithful retread of the original The Omen, came out on June 6, 2006 (6/6/06, get it?) and studios lied and said it made $12,633,666 on opening day (which makes you wonder about Late Night with the Devil’s $666,666 claim, huh?). Unlike the original, however, the film is known for style, not substance—or scares.

Where to watch The First Omen (April 5, 2024)

The poster for The First Omen (2024) shows a dark room. The door frames the silhouette of a young girl in a dress. She casts the shadow of an inverted cross.

The First Omen, first-time director Arkasha Stevenson’s Omen prequel—where we learn Damien Thorn’s origin—comes out Friday, April 5, 2024. You can use the link below to buy tickets.

Where and when will The First Omen come to streaming? Since It is a 20th Century Fox film, our educated guess is Hulu. That means you’ll probably be able to watch every Omen movie on one streaming service when The First Omen hits Hulu (or wherever it lands). We’ll update this piece when we have a streaming release date.

How to watch the Omen movies in chronological order

This one’s easy. If you’re new to the Omen movies, Richard Donner’s original The Omen should be your first entry into Damien’s world. If you’ve already seen the first film, go to your local theater and watch The First Omen, then watch everything else in release order.

How to rent or buy the Omen movies digitally

Do you prefer to rent movies instead of subscribing to streaming services? The links above will tell you which video-on-demand (VOD) retailers have the Omen films available to rent or buy.

Rental pricing for the first five Omen movies is $3.99–$4.99. For a first-run film like The First Omen, expect to pay $19.99 for a 48-hour rental.
