Rosemary’s Baby
Roman Polanski
Mia Farrow, John Cassavetes

As Rosemary, Mia Farrow suffers through what must be the most unpleasant pregnancy on record in Roman Polanski’s chilling adaptation of Ira Levin’s best-selling novel. The story of a young couple who moves into a Manhattan apartment building (The Dakota) with strange inhabitants and begins to find their world turned upside down by dark forces, Rosemary’s Baby is a nightmarish film. “A horror film...of the ‘what could have happened to me while I was asleep, what am I really pregnant with?’ sort...And it is a highly serious lapsed-Catholic fable, going on the assumption that God is dead to imagine a Nativity for the dark powers.” (NY Times)
