Suspenser starring Gregory Peck and Lee Remick as the unwitting parents of the anti-Christ. Richard Donner’s direction is taut. Players all are strong.

There’s enough exposition of the Book of Revelation to educate on the spot a person from another civilization. As for any religious commitment needed, that problem is minimal; the only premise one must accept is that the fallen Lucifer remains a very strong supernatural being.

Peck, well cast as a career American ambassador, is convinced by Italian priest Martin Benson to substitute another hospital baby for the one wife Remick lost in childbirth. Five years later, strange things begin to happen.

At various points, portents of Satanism emerge, underscored (or, rather, overscored) by Jerry Goldsmith’s heavy music.

1976: Best Original Score.

Nomination: Best Song (‘Ave Satani’)
