United States, 1968 / 131 Mins
Director: Roman Polanski
Starring: Mia Farrow, Ruth Gordon
A young couple moves in to an apartment only to be surrounded by peculiar neighbours and occurrences. When the wife becomes mysteriously pregnant, paranoia over the safety of her unborn child begins to control her life. Horrifying and darkly comic, Rosemary’s Baby was Roman Polanski’s Hollywood debut. This wildly entertaining nightmare, faithfully adapted from Ira Levin’s best seller, stars a revelatory Mia Farrow, Sidney Blackmer, an Oscar-winning Ruth Gordon and John Cassavetes. In the decades of occult cinema that Polanski’s ungodly masterpiece has spawned, it has never been outdone for sheer psychological terror.
