A pregnant woman fears that her baby may be chosen for an occult ritual. Based on the novel Rosemary’s Baby by Ira Levin. Starring Mia Farrow, John Cassavetes, Ruth Gordon
Although, I get what all the fuss is about surrounding this film I was not as intrigued as everyone else was. I do agree that this is a story that could happen, it’s possible. That in its self makes it scary to say the least. Mia Farrow, of course, gives the performance of a lifetime and even John Cassavetes playing the dutiful husband was superb. You can either take this film as it is or wonder if Rosemary is losing her mind. The one thing that I don’t think holds up as well, is that Guy comes off as a controlling husband. I was quite surprised that Rosemary put up with that, especially the night she got pregnant. Guy practically admitted to raping her. I would have been very upset with my husband for that to say the least. I do question the “horror” aspect of the film, I would say this a thriller and it’s one of the best thriller’s.
