** At little Damien's birthday party, there's a puppet show being performed. Just before the nanny [[spoiler:hangs herself,]] there's a brief shot of the two ''puppets'' turning to look at her.


* ItsTheSameNowItSucks: Critics were quick to point out the 2006 remake whilst far from terrible was basically a scene for scene remake and didn't really do anything the original hadn't. The only significant changes story-wise being the time period, a few weird nightmare sequences, and [[spoiler: the murder of Katherine]].
* MoralEventHorizon: In the remake Damien's more overtly evil from the outset, [[spoiler:but helping to kill off his mother is the definite point of no return.]]
* {{Narm}}: The CGI heavy version of these death scenes in the 2006 remake are arguably equally silly without the excuse of being over three decades old.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The 2006 score doesn't use the original (not to mention iconic) Music/JerryGoldsmith score. The new score is very understated in comparison and for some critics fails to leave any noticeable impact at all.

* UnfortunateImplications: Robert Thorne's speech against religious fanatics who believe arcane scripture justifies killing is immediately disproven. The lesson -- that he should trust that the arcane scripture is right with its literal interpretation -- is far outweighed by multitudes examples in the real world in which people, at best, are quick to label everyone from the US president to the performer in a Superbowl half time show as the Antichrist, and, at worst, commit heinous acts of mass murder and war crimes based on this belief.
