Edit RomeItalyJune 6, Madame defarge Robert Thorn Gregory Peck is an American diplomat who hurries to a local hospital where his pregnant wife Katherine Lee Remick is going into labor.
When he gets to the hospital, he is informed that his child was a stillbirth. A priest named Father Spiletto Martin Benson then offers him the choice to adopt a baby boy born at the same time who has no parents.
Robert is reluctant to do so, but knowing his wife will be devastated by the news of her real child's death, he agrees to the adoption. The boy is named Damien and moves to England with his new mother and father when Robert is appointed US ambassador to England.
When Damien Harvey Stephens is celebrating his fifth birthday party, a large, black dog appears and causes the family's nanny Holly Palance to hang herself in front of everyone. Among those present is a news photographer named Keith Jennings David Warnerwho is taking pictures.
The next day, in his office, Robert is visited by a priest, named Father Brennan Patrick Troughtonwho claims to have been present during Damien's birth in Rome five years ago. He begs Thorn to accept Christ Madame defarge, because only then can he fight the son of the Devil. The priest is escorted out by security and Jennings takes note of the visitor, snapping pictures.
While developing the pictures of the day, Jennings notices the priest has a dark, javelin-like object over his head in all of the pictures he appears in; but the anomaly doesn't appear anywhere else on the film. A new nanny, named Mrs. Baylock Billie Whitelawis sent to replace the previous nanny, but it is clear that she is not as she seems.
Baylock immediately challenges Kathy Thorn's authority when she is instructed to dress and ready Damien to attend a church wedding with them, but she does as she is told. The Thorns travel to the church, and Damien becomes more fearful as their car approaches the church.
He has a violent reaction in which he injures his mother trying to get away. The car pulls away hurriedly and while the Thorns discuss Damien's reaction and whether he should be examined by a doctor, then realize he has never been sick at all a day in his life. Kathy takes Damien to a safari park, and various animals react with fear or violence towards Damien.
It climaxes with a group of baboons attacking the car that Kathy is driving, forcing her to speed away. Meanwhile, Robert is followed by Brennan and is pulled aside at a public event; Brennan tells him that his wife is in danger and he needs to talk to him.
Jennings is also at the event, taking pictures. The pictures again show the dark anomaly above Brennan. The next day, when Robert meets with Brennan again, the priest tells him that Damien is the son of the Devil, and will kill everyone around him, including Kathy's unborn child as well as Kathy herself.
Brennan instructs Robert to go to the city of Tel Megiddo in Israelto find a man named Carl Bugenhagen who can tell him how to kill Damien. However, Robert simply thinks that Brennan is insane and warns him to never to bother him again.
As Brennan leaves the park, a sudden rainstorm comes up and he is impaled by a church spire in a freak accident while trying to take shelter in a nearby church.
Robert goes home, and the next day Kathy tells him she is pregnant. Robert then also discovers the newspaper's cover story about Brennan's bizarre death, further startling him. Kathy has been agitated by Damien as of late, causing her to visit a therapistand she tells Robert she wants to terminate the pregnancy.
Robert decides to go to the therapist to discuss Kathy's concerns. While Robert is out, Kathy falls over a banister after being knocked over by Damien, injuring her and killing her unborn child.
Robert visits the injured Kathy in hospital, and she begs him not to "let him kill me. Jennings then takes Robert to Brennan's residence, which he has access to due to the police investigation into his death, and they find an odd collection of crosses and Bible pages everywhere.
Robert tells Jennings about Brennan's warnings and how Damien was adopted. He then decides to find Damien's biological parents, and Jennings decides to help because of an anomaly on a picture of himself which indicates he will be decapitated. Robert and Jennings travel to Italy together to find Father Spiletto.
They quickly learn that the hospital where Damien was born burned down in a mysterious fire five years ago, along with all the birth records.
