June 6 in Goth and Horror History

The Omen Fullscreen Edition DVD: $2.89 on Amazon

June 6, 1923 - V.C. Andrews - Writer - Born

June 6, 2006 - The Omen (Remake) - Movie - Released

V.C. Andrews wrote light horror bodice rippers (such as Flowers in the Attic) that at least put many teenage girls on the right track towards reading darker material.

I'm not sure the classic The Omen needed to be remade; but they went and did it anyway.
