"It is the greatest mystery of all because no human being will ever solve it."

  • Director: Richard Donner
  • Genre: Horror, Thriller
  • Studio: Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation
  • Subtitled | Widescreen | Duration: 130 Mins

Overview:
This big-budget horror blockbuster is given class by a distinguished cast and an unsettling atmosphere created by director Richard Donner. Gregory Peck plays the American diplomat who takes the fateful decision to substitute another child for his own stillborn infant. Lee Remick is terrific as his wife, unknowing of the deception yet deeply suspicious of her sinister son. Cleverly borrowing a prophecy from the Book of Revelation about the rise of the Antichrist, scriptwriter David Seltzer fashions a supernatural terror tale of religious-epic proportions. Three sequels and a remake (in 2006) were to follow, yet this is still the best episode because it sustains its suspenseful premise to the end and generates genuine unease, not least through a catalogue of imaginative ghastly deaths.
