    It won't take you long to recognize this inept remake for the dull, clumsy bore it is.

    Even with actors who have done good work elsewhere, this Baby is a curiously lifeless “reimagining” with a thoroughly modern polish that actually makes the story harder to believe and lands well short of its target of generating atmospheric chills.

    In nearly every scene of this Baby, you're judging it against the Polanski version and wishing you were watching that one instead. The writing is jumbled, the photography often merely pretty, the direction often shockingly clumsy.

    Nothing is remotely atmospheric, death scenes are predictable and boringly filmed, the best friend character might as well be wearing a red shirt, and the dialogue and plotting are horrendously executed.

    Roman and Margaux Castavet (scene-stealing Jason Isaacs and Carole Bouquet, the best reasons to tune in). Closer in tone to ABC's failed 666 Park Avenue homage than to Roman Polanski's still-haunting 1968 adaptation, this Baby isn't likely to keep you at night.

    The style, or lack thereof, works against the tale of psychological terrors to the point that the whole thing feels like a rebuke.

    So much of this remake loses the original’s subtlety (no doubt decades of more pointed horror movies have taken their toll) that outside of the aforementioned three worthwhile elements [Paris, Zoe Saldana, and Zoe Saldana in her underwear] everything seems to be a waste of time.

    Awful writing, slowly paced, I feel that they could have easily condensed Rosemary's Baby into a single "episode", but for whatever reasonAwful writing, slowly paced, I feel that they could have easily condensed Rosemary's Baby into a single "episode", but for whatever reason they felt inclined to just spread it as thin as possible.

    I think what made it the worst was the female lead's portrayal as a sniveling coward. For someone who is worried about the well being of their "baby" and the issues she has, she sure lets an awful lot of people force her into positions she rather wouldn't. She mate it almost un-watchable.

    I would have ended it differently, having Rosemary throw herself and the baby to their deaths, but I guess that's just me.
