    Hi,

    I know there was a huge debate about this film, about a year or so ago, and whether or not the UK DVD was cut or uncut, but having watched and taped several ITV viewings since then, they always appeared to show what I can only presume was a cut version.

    Anyway, on BBC Choice tonight - Jan 2nd - at 23:00 hours, they are showing the film, and hopefully it may be an uncut version.

    The problem was that some of us think that the scene were a female journalist is attacked by crows, was edited. Many of us remember seeing (or think we saw) her eye being pecked out, and the resultant bloody socket. However, all showings on Tv and DVD releases, appear to omit this small part. We see the woman on the ground, being attacked by the crows, but then she staggers up and we see a blood pouring from her eyes, but no eating of the eyeball itself.

    It seemed mighty odd, that so many of us can remember this scene being different, and yet all versions released or shown appeared to omit this.

    So, let's see what the BBC show, and then we will be able to pester 20th Century Fox, if we were all correct all along!

    I have only seen Omen 2 taped from TV many years ago, and I can remember this scene, quite vividly as I was at a very impressionable age!

    Identical to the DVD release. No extra footage. :(

    Sorry I could not remember seeing the crow plucking the eyes out and eating them, but if you get the game Diablo on budget, the title sequence has one doing it.:D
