    Rosemary’s Baby bends to current fashions, and, accordingly, is more straightforward and much gorier than the original film. But partly because the story has been so altered, it still has mystery and suspense.

    This mini reproduces the movie's singular feat of being scary without being graphic, accomplishing more with mood and suggestion than overt shocks.

    This version, set in Paris, compensates with an atmosphere of chic rot--they have that over there--an increased body count and an excellent cast. [19 May 2014, p.44]

    Saldana carries the full load throughout. Her skepticism grows--as does her performance--in tandem with her belly before it all boils over into a full-out escape plan.

    There are enough deviations to keep horror aficionados at least mildly interested. [9 May 2014, p.61]

    Although their four-hour production sags and drags in places, it is overall a stylish and engaging new take.

    The miniseries is often visually striking, with helmer Agnieszka Holland delivering stylish, cinematic work. But the new script also undermines her mood-setting efforts with cheap shock tactics.

    It starts to feel repetitive in the second half. But a convincing Zoe Saldana Avatar keeps you vested in the outcome, and the City of Light makes an enticing backdrop for the Prince of Darkness.

    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.
