In Germany and Hungary, the film was released as "Barbara's Baby", in an effort to align it with Rosemary's Baby (1968). Reportedly, this title also appeared on some movie posters for the film in some countries prior to the issuance of an official title for the picture See more »
The film was shot in the summer, which is obvious by the foliage. At Damien's reception as US Ambassador to the Court of St James, his assistant's wife is shown in the late stages of pregnancy, and it becomes an important plot aspect that her son is born on March 24th. If she were in late pregnancy, it should therefore be late winter, not summer. The foliage does not match the timing in the plot line with her pregnancy and her baby's birth date. See more »

The horror in this movie is so bad it's funny! Every time a monk gets anywhere near Damien the poor guy falls off a bridge or drops down a hole or just slips on a banana peel or something.
On the other hand, the smart and pretty lady reporter gets her hands on Damien right away, without any trouble. It's said that Sam Neill who plays Damien and Lisa Harrow who plays Kate Reynolds were actually falling in love for real as this movie was being made. It really shows! Aside from being just gorgeous, Lisa Harrow was a good actress. You can see that her character has at least three sides to her. As a reporter, she's intrigued by Damien's vast wealth and growing political power. As a mother, she's frightened of his influence over her troubled teenage son. And as a woman, she can't help responding to the sheer excitement of his darkly sexual charisma. But what makes this interesting is that the story line always treats her character with respect. Her sexual feelings don't cancel out her heart or her intelligence, they just make her more mature and sympathetic.
Why is it that major stars like Julia Roberts and Meg Ryan never play anyone half as interesting as this?
