On this day in Horror History, the world would see the theatrical release of The Omen (1976) and John Carpenter’s The Thing (1982). Both films that debuted on this day would ultimately make a formidable notch in the annals of the horror industry. The Omen would couple some of the most iconic actors of a generation; including Gregory Peck and Lee Remick, only to give life to one of the most terrifying tales placing the innocence of a child at a crossroads with what is undeniable evil. The movie would be a box office success, and would lead to 3 sequels and several TV Movies as well as an ’06 remake.
The Thing which debuted 6 years later was blessed by several cult actors including Kurt Russell and Wilford Brimley. Spawning into a popular video game and another remake in 2011, The Thing (1982) could be argued as one of the most beloved adaptions of the John W. Campbell Jr. Novella ‘Who Goes There?’.
