The Omen Collection Blu-ray Review (Scream Factory)
The Omen Collection collects all five of the Omen films in one nifty boxset, and it contains all the good and bad of the entire series. The new transfer on the original Omen is really the draw here, but there are a number of new features on most of the films to give this a hearty recommendation despite the flaws of some of the later entries in the series.
Damien: Omen II
The Final Conflict
Omen IV: The Awakening

The Omen looks excellent with its new 4k transfer
Tons of extras to wade through with the first three films
Later entries are a mixed bag
The Omen remake is essentially the same disc as the 2006 Fox Blu-ray
We posted reviews of all of the Omen Collection movies as their own separate posts, but for those looking for a really quick TL;DR of the entire set, here’s a rundown of each disc and then a full aggregate score of the collection.
The Omen is an excellent – possibly the best – devil child horror film, with a great performance from Gregory Peck and a lot of atmosphere. This Blu-ray as part of the Omen Collection has a number of new extras and a great 4k scan of the film.
Damien: Omen II can’t match the atmosphere or intensity of the original, but it does its best and does a fairly good job. This Blu-ray in the Omen Collection doesn’t have a new scan but a serviceable transfer and some good new extras.
The Final Conflict is one of the best films in the Omen series and Scream Factory has done a fine job with this release as part of the Omen Collection, with three new interviews and a new audio commentary along with a previously-existing HD transfer.
Omen IV: The Awakening is by far the weakest in the Omen series due to its copycat tendencies, its TV movie censorship, and an underwhelming plot. Scream Factory’s disc uses a mediocre transfer with only one new extra, but most people probably won’t be returning to this film in the collection often anyway.
The Omen remake is a lesser version of its predecessor, without as much heart or suspense. Ultimately, it makes one question why they’d watch this instead of the original. This disc in the collection is exactly the same as the 2006 Blu-ray released by Fox.
