Horror. When US diplomat Robert Thorn's wife loses her baby, he agrees to substitute another, born at the same time, whose mother has died in childbirth. As the boy, Damien, grows, a series of bizarre accidents and deaths occur around him. A Catholic priest warns Thorn that the boy's mother was not human, that he must have a birthmark showing the number of the beast, 666, and that his arrival is foretold in The Book of Revelations. Further investigation confirms that Damien is the anti-Christ, born of a jackel, who is destined to gain global political power.
