We are diving way back to the late 1960s for our next October Horror Binge as one of the iconic films, Rosemary’s Baby, was released. Rosemary’s Baby is a psychological thriller/horror film directed by the infamous Roman Polanski featuring Mia Farrow as Rosemary, a young woman whose pregnancy may be more than it seems.
Rosemary and Guy moved into a new apartment despite the fact that their friend Hutch attempted to dissuade them from taking it considering the questionable past of the building. Their neighbors, Minnie and Roman Castevet, immediately thrust themselves into the couple’s lives. When Rosemary and Guy decided to have a baby, the Castvets got involved even more with special drinks and foods.
On the night when Rosemary is planning to be impregnated, she was drugged and raped by a demonic force. She became pregnant.
When Rosemary believed , she became desperate to try and find out the truth.
The film was very tense. Even though we saw the rape scene, the film built it as if Rosemary was paranoid and crazy. There was always a slight doubt.
The movie is creepy as heck and the whole Satanic stuff works in the horror genre. This is more subtle than you think and developed a really thrill ride that makes you desperate to cheer for Mia Farrow.
It is one of the great horror movies of all time.
