Reviews [click links to read more]:

“It’s The Omen, but made for $500 in Los Angeles and with no creativity. The Evil Nanny actually does less, not even killing herself in this film. In this film, she shows her tits, stands near Not Damien and then dies in the finale. Most of the characters have even less to do. Lieving, for as much as I dislike her here (and in most films) does little other than react to previous scenes…” Mondo Bizarro

“Partly a spoof of The Omen and the many other films about evil little boys, it’s unfortunately never at any time funny, unless you think such things as citing the number 6 several times is just oh so witty […] Pretending to be spoofy seems merely the fall-back position when exploitation filmmakers dash off some product exactly like several others, but get everything wrong.” Weird Wild Realm

As a horror movie, 666: The Child is absolutely worthless. As an Omen rip-off, 666: The Child is hopelessly inept. As an “I cannot believe how freakin’ stupid this movie is” MST3K worthy film, 666: The Child is a real humdinger.” B-Ware The Blog!

“This is theoretically a spoof of “spawn of Satan” films, and had they made it clearer in pre-release, or even on the DVD box, that this was a spoof, the film might have been better received. As it stood, the fans of Asylum Films expected horror, and were not pleased. On the other hand, even if we assume a spoof, it is of dubious value.” Uncle Scoopy’s Movie House
