Series based on:
We first had a sneak peek at this new show at SDCC 2015. Check out our photo album from the Damien panel, HERE! We enjoyed the Q&A panel. We got a first hand look at the new show and a behind-the-scenes discussion with the cast and creator.
The show is definitely dark and suspenseful. The show takes off years after the film. And now, Those loyal to the "Antichrist" are coming out of the "woodworks." All the while, Damien has to come to the realization of who he is; however, he is still a man. Like with any human being, Damien has to face the conflict between what he is and who he is.
He has grown up not remembering much of his past, but it seems that it is now catching up with him. He is finding bits and pieces of clues which opens up his memories. Yes, he is conflicted...and confused. Seeing that "666" just confirms what he has been told about what he is.
Just like the film, the show has elements of horror and suspense which makes it so gripping. In addition to these dark elements, Damien also has that drama element in which the character himself must deal with outside forces and inner conflicts. The realism of this character is apparent with how Damien confronts it all.
I liked it! The show definitely opened and followed the basic theme of the original film. I loved how clips from the original film was integrated into the show as Damien's memory flashback(s) and in family photos. Let's see where they go with the show!
Until the next dark episode. What will Damien do now that he knows what he is!?!
