Director John Moore Talks About His Film "THE OMEN" Opening In
Theaters Tuesday June 6th From 20th Century Fox
By: Stephanie R. Green, Contributing Arts & Entertainment Writer
Moore: "There was certainly some weird
stuff that went on. We lost a lot of film – the
scene where he cuts the kids hair and
reveals the 6’s".
How was the film destroyed?
Moore: "You can get a scratch on a negative
occasionally because it’s going through
mechanical rollers. There was right down
the middle of the frame a blue and white
mark on 13 ½ feet of film – just like depicted
in the film."
And no one could explain how the mark got
Moore: "No, believe me the lab technician
covered up with a tablecloth, they were like
we can’t tell you, we don’t know."
Why (towards the end of the movie) do you
have the child stand next to a politician?
Moore: "To fulfill the prophecy of Father
Brennan’s warning and from the eternal sea
rises. David Thewlis character accurately
proposes the notion that the eternal sea
means politics and I don’t know any other
method of mass control, other than politics,
even fascism is politics, it’s an appeal to
ideas right or wrong, so politics is our life."
What’s your response to the 9/11 footage?
Moore: "I would have to be an idiot if I didn’t
expect to come to New York and have native
New Yorkers see that image and not have an
emotional response. I just hope that they
take it in the true sense that it is used as a
demonstration of evil. Which the President
claimed it as such unless I’m misquoting
him. Was it wise or unwise? It’s hard to tell
but it certainly wasn’t anything other than a
genuine attempt - I mean I obviously stayed
up late at night wondering whether or not it
was prudent to use."

McGuigan's Lucky Number Slevin.

which was directed by Richard Donner, and
he has retained the structures and themes of

In John’s version of the film he wanted to
take the characters a little further, emphasiz-
ing how evil is neither a concept nor theory,
but has a human face which is empowered

Moore: "It’s really the first ten minutes of the
movie. This movie is a wonderfully, really
effective fable, it’s a wonderfully effective
metaphor, as all the good biblical stories
are. So knowing that I had an incredibly
effective story, and to set it against the
backdrop of the first ten minutes of the movie,
that’s really, what I wanted to go for.
