Holocaust 2000

A straight rip-off from The Omen. This time it's an American industrialist, not an American ambassador, who sires the Antichrist, but in other respects the familiar rush-towards-apocalypse is all here, right down to the various decapitations. If only the film-makers had paid less attention to plot detail in The Omen and more to its acute construction and direction, they might have pulled it off; but Holocaust 2000 bears most of the worst traces of international co-production, notably a sense of disunity between cast and direction, some poor dubbing, and lines of dialogue that sound just like subtitles ('Your mother used to blame you subconsciously for being the only one to survive'). Everyone's pulling hard, only it's all too obvious they're not pulling in the same direction.
