the first omen home video release

Summer nights are a terror-ific time to stay up late being spooked out by a horror movie. Just as summer has arrived, so has 20th Century Studios’ The First Omen. The horror flick is now available to purchase from all major digital retailers including Prime Video, Apple TV, and Fandango at Home; will be available to stream May 30 on Hulu; and is being released July 30 on Blu-ray and DVD. The First Omen is rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA).

In this psychological horror prequel to the classic Omen films, a young American woman is sent to Rome to begin a life of service to the church. Soon, she encounters a darkness that causes her to question her faith, and that reveals a terrifying conspiracy to bring about the birth of evil incarnate. The First Omen stars Nell Tiger Free (Servant), Tawfeek Barhom (Mary Magdalene), Sonia Braga (Kiss of the Spider Woman), Ralph Ineson (The Northman) and Bill Nighy (Living). The film is directed by Arkasha Stevenson based on characters created by David Seltzer (The Omen), with a story by Ben Jacoby (Bleed) and a screenplay by Tim Smith & Arkasha Stevenson and Keith Thomas (Firestarter).
