Beat the devil

Scaring up the chills in Gotham

NEW YORK — The audience verdict at the May 31 advanced screening of 20th’s “The Omen?”: bone chilling.

This was partly because the evening — hosted by the Cinema Society — was held at the icy Angel Orensanz Foundation, which (despite the outside humidity) managed to maintain a room temperature that would have made Hell freeze over.

The converted church, illuminated with splashes of blood-red lighting, was the perfect environment to unspool the horror remake, however, although not everyone was feeling creeped out by their surroundings:

“I’m the least superstitious person in the world, but I’m surrounded by big ninnies,” said Liev Schreiber.

The thesp dismissed all rumors of an “Omen” curse during lensing: “The scariest thing that happened on set was when David Thewlis arrived with an ink blot on his hand and proclaimed it was in the shape of a six.”
