I have a great fondness for the original three films. I think it was the first bona fide trilogy I ever saw, on successive Tuesday nights or somesuch on ITV I think. The first one is full of great thrills and genuine scares, even if you have seen it before. The stillness of the priest in his final resting place - well, stillness bar an arm slowly swinging like a pendulum - remains shocking. The other two really were on the path of diminishing returns, but even so, I find a charm there that too many more modern horror/thriller films do not have. The ice hockey scene, and the chase through the woods, are also well-built up scenes IMO. A couple of years ago I worked in a job where most days I saw a man who looked the spitting image of Jonathan Scott-Taylor (Damien Thorn) - somewhat unnerving. I enjoy Sam Neill's performance in The Final Conflict, and the extended infanticide sequence. Though overall it is not a great movie, it is by far superior to the terrible TVM The Awakening that came a few years later.
