20th Century Fox/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — You have been warned: It’s the 40th anniversary of The Omen today.

The classic horror film, starring Gregory Peck, Lee Remick and Harvey Stephens, tells the tale of a U.S. ambassador who adopts a newborn child after his wife suffers a stillbirth, only to discover that it may be the Antichrist.

The Richard Donner-directed flick made more than 60 million dollars at the box office following its release on June 25, 1976, according to BoxOfficeMojo.com. It earned two Oscar nominations, winning for best original score.

The Omen spawned a few sequels, plus a remake in 2006 and the recently cancelled A&E series Damien.
