An American ambassador (Gregory Peck) and his wife adopt a child who they soon learn is evil incarnate.
Son of Satan, Damien (Jonathan Scott-Taylor) is now thirteen and learns of his destiny as the Antichrist.
Now an adult, evil-as-ever Damien prepares to battle against the human incarnation of Christ.
Liev Schreiber and Julia Stiles star in the remake, which features the original Damien (Harvey Spencer Stephens) in a cameo.
Although Damien is killed in the third installment, evil continues through his prophecy (and a little girl named Delia).
