A Little Madam

Rich and successful they may be but Gene and Karen York (Michael Woods & Faye Grant) are also childless which is why when they hear that there is a baby girl called Delia who needs adopting they can't wait to take the innocent child. But trouble appears to follow Delia with those who come in to contact with her often falling victim of a nasty accident which eventually leads Karen to question these coincidences and how truly innocent Delia is as her thought turn towards the bible and the prophesy of Armageddon.

Trying to get across befuddlement in words is not an easy thing to do so shall I just say that "Omen IV: The Awakening" befuddled me. I kind of like what they were trying to do something which is actually more than what that synopsis states yet at the same time it is so ridiculous that I hate it. Now if I'm not careful I am going to leave you befuddled so I am going to say spoiler alert now as I am going to give out major plot spoilers in this review.

So "Omen IV: The Awakening" starts of almost like it was a remake on the original with the adoption of Delia who seems to have some sort of demonic ability to make bad things happen to those she doesn't like. And so for a while what we get a lot of is Delia giving a conceited look followed by some sort of bad shit going down from a father of another child suffering an accident to a major catastrophe at a psychic fair. And whilst all this is going on it is quite tedious because devil child movies with an evil streak are sadly ten a.

But then after this "Omen IV: The Awakening" tries to come up with something more original and so we have Delia's connection to the original Damien, embryo implantation, twins and a few other things. On one hand there is a certain amount of creativity to this but on the other it is utterly ridiculous and makes "Omen IV: The Awakening" the far fetched nonsense which it is often mocked for being.

What this all boils down to is that "Omen IV: The Awakening" to give it some credit has some ideas which are kind of okay but the end result is a ridiculous movie which often ends up a procession of devil child being evil scenes.
