The Movie: 'The Omen' (1976)

The Scene: After his newborn son dies shortly after childbirth, Ambassador Robert Thorn secretly adopts an orphan child and poses it as his own; it appears everything will work out for the Thorns and their new son -- Damien. However, strange events begin occurring to the people around Damien, indicating that the orphan boy may in fact be the biblical Antichrist. The prophetic doom starts on Damien's fifth birthday, when his nanny (Holly Palance) enters into a hypnotic daze, shortly after coming across a stray Rottweiler. Afterward, she decides to give Damien the only birthday present you can give to the demonic creature that will bring about the end of days.
