The haunting first trailer for The First Omen has officially surfaced. Arriving as a prequel to the 1976 cult-followed classic The Omen, The First Omen comes as the first prequel in the franchise – already privy to two sequels and a Liev Schreiber-led remake – travels back to where it all began: the birthplace of the devil.

Nell Tiger Free (of Apple TV‘s Servant) leads the film, alongside a cast that includes Tawfeek Barhom, Sonia Braga, Ralph Ineson and Bill Nighy. Free stars as a young American woman sent off to Rome to begin a life of service to the church. As the logline indicates, “[Free] then encounters a darkness that causes her to question her own faith and uncovers a terrifying conspiracy that hopes to bring about the birth of evil incarnate.”

While Richard Donner directed the initial Omen film back in the 70s (and Gregory Peck taking the lead acting role), Arkasha Stevenson directs this time around, with a script she wrote alongside Ben Jacoby, Tim Smith, and Keith Thomas.

Set to an eerie soundtrack, the trailer is sans dialogue; “To Control Those Who Don’t Believe, Create Something To Fear,” reads a sequence of title cards intermixed throughout the void-of-voices preview.

The trailer comes to a chilling close with the only lines of dialogue heard throughout the full minute-long clip. “You don’t have to be afraid,” an off-screen voice explains. “This child is his way.”

Stream the full trailer above, and catch The First Omen in theaters beginning on April 5, 2024.
