    Saw this movie in the summer of 1968, just after my sophomore year of college and it was truly creepy in every way. Roman Polanski created a wonderful, increasingly dark atmosphere as, one by one, Rosemary's every hope or possibility of escape from her "destiny" as the mother of Satan's child, is cut off and eliminated and she becomes increasingly isolated in her fight against a situation from which she cannot escape. What makes it more chilling is that Rosemary does not truly realize her situation until the end: she thinks the coven simply wants her baby, a human baby, for its own purposes. Only when she views him for the first time, does she fully realize that her child is only half human. Ruth Gordon, who is usually plays comedic characters, is truly evil as the caring and concerned neighbor who turns out to be anything but.

    Polanski's American debut is an intelligent, creepy entry in the horror genre. Farrow deserved an Oscar nomination as a young woman who fears that she's carrying the son of Satan. Cassavetes gives his most complex performance as Farrow's actor-husband who sells her out to the Devil and Gordon won a well-deserved Oscar as a too-nosey neighbour. Polanski adapts Ira Levin's novel to focus on the build-up of tension and makes great use of the Dakota's gothic architecture. This is a clever, darkly-funny film where at the end, viewers will confuse what they imagined they saw instead of what they actually saw. I give it a 5/5.

    A landmark in the "A" horror genre, the film also marked Roman Polanski's U.S. directorial debut. Rosemary's Baby was the prototype for all the big-budget horror films that followed: The Exorcist, The Omen, etc., but more elegantly directed, and with much less outright violence and gore.Rich in atmosphere and marked by Polanski's precision and stylish technique, Rosemary's Baby also boasts a superb starring and supporting cast.The film's suspense is propelled by ambiguities in the storyline that alternately unnerve and reassure. The viewer is also gently maneuvered to Rosemary's point of view and, though aware that something evil is afoot, does not quite understand the magnitude of what has happened to Rosemary until the last scene.Excellent cinematography, production design, costume design, editing and music.This is a classic, perfectly made film that stands the test of time and multiple viewings.

  • I can't believe it's not schedules to show.

    And that says it all, it's a movie that should be showing at least around Halloween and christmas.It's a movie that fills all my criteria; Christmas,60's fashion, scary and last but not least Ruth Gordon...Hope to see it soon.

  • Oscar for Ruth!

    Very entertaining but not quite the horror film they tried to make this out to be. Great NY locals. Mia Farrow quite good but Natalie Wood could have taken this a step higher. Farrow pretty much tanked after this film and had comeback hopes with The Great Gatsby, a 1974 disaster. Paging Woody Allen.

  • So good!

    When I first saw this movie I had already read the book. I was impressed at how closely the movie followed the book in small details. Like when the elevator operator jiggled the control 3 times. I also enjoyed the looks of this movie. Mia was gorgeous. Did anyone see Charles Grodin playing her young doctor in this movie? I am always captivated by this movie and watch it whenever it is on.
