The creepy prop is owned by the actor who played the apparently innocent little boy whose presence leads to a string of brutal deaths and who is eventually revealed as the son of Satan.

In one of the 1976 film's most famous scenes, Damien rides the tricycle down a corridor and into a chair on which his mother is standing, sending her plunging to her death over a bannister.

British actor Harvey Stephens, who received a Golden Globe nomination for his performance as Damien, recalled: "I can remember riding around the film set on the tricycle - the house was so big they had to mark out my route with masking tape and arrows so I didn't get lost.

"My two children have been riding about on it recently, but luckily they have no idea about its scary history."

It is estimated the tricycle will sell for £12,000 to £15,000 when it goes on sale at Bonhams on December 15.
