I had a really tough time getting into this movie. To the point where I found it just severely dragged at times and failing to keep my interest. Don't get me wrong, Farrow does a great job and I think the premise is interesting enough yet forI had a really tough time getting into this movie.

Polanski at his best ! Despite his private life and the awful things he should have been judged, i will only speak about his work here. This is the best book adaptation by Polanski, this time, without Gerard Brach. The actors are really goodPolanski at his best !

The actors are really good and the thing that makes this movie, a great, great one, is the ability of Polanski to create a thrilling atmosphere. Expand

Haunting, this film created mass paranoia in conspiracy and the occult. A brilliantly written and executed look into the secret and bizarre.

and the artistic thrills..

Rosemary's Baby

The stunning background score, witty horrific image and the nail-biting tense surrounding that is offered in here is easy to give one the anticipated chills and goosebumps that stays with one throughout the course of it. Roman Polanski's smart adaptation with perfect editing is something to explore in it as it demands attention from the first frame. His work on execution too, is appreciative if not completely justified considering the potential of the script. On performance, Mia Farrow grows on you as it ages on screen but unfortunately isn't supported well enough except for Ruth Gordon's stellar performance. Rosemary's Baby is a smart take on its genre, for it may go into places where one has been before but still doesn't use the clich├ęd formula like appalling creatures or hide and seek show or a typical altered ego.

Again Polanski and his greatness. So sick directing, so sick story, and sick acting. Great movie to watch when you want to be paranoid.

Roman Polanski is a classic and his long career has consecrated him as one of the most influential directors of the twentieth century, although I don't have any sympathy for him as a person. This film is probably one of the most notorious andRoman Polanski is a classic and his long career has consecrated him as one of the most influential directors of the twentieth century, although I don't have any sympathy for him as a person. This film is probably one of the most notorious and acclaimed of his career, and rightly so. When it debuted, in the late sixties, it was scary and I fully understand why. More than other horror movies so far, it used the permanent tension to keep the audience in absolute discomfort, not to mention that danger around a baby is something that touches the emotional side of anyone. It's something innate. The story takes place in an apartment building and revolves around Rosemary, a young woman who impregnates after having had a mysterious nightmare, when something possessed her sexually. Finally, other revelations, and the attitudes of a couple of elderly seemingly loving neighbors, convince her that she expects a son of the Devil, the Antichrist himself. Terrifying, is not? With such a good script it was easy to succeed, especially when Polanski so cleverly uses visual and sound effects as well as cinematography, misty and dense. Everything was thoughtfully designed to make us tense. Rape scenes are worthy of anthology. Today, by themselves, they don't scare us, horror movies have been so full of gore and blood that these scenes have lost their strength, but if we embed them in the film, they contribute a lot to our discomfort. Mia Farrow was at the highest level during the film, perhaps the most controversial of her career, since neither her husband supported her. Sidney Blackmer and Ruth Gordon glared at the Castevets, the movie's villains. John Cassavetes is more restrained but does very well with his role. At present, this movie may not scare you as much as it scared you in the past, everything has its expiration date, but it remains one of the great classics of horror and must have a place on the shelf of any lover of this movie genre.

Overrated is one word that comes to mind. Quick info on me, I was born in '79 and I have never seen this film until today.

Quick info on me, I was born in '79 and I have never seen this film until today. To say this is a "horror" film is a stretch and some critics have this film in the top horror films of all time, it's not. The movie drags and is very boring, nothing really happens for most of the run time, 137min. Here is the other part that is kinda sick, there is basically a rape scene in the film and if you know anything about Mr. Polanski, well watching that part in 2019 was a little strange. I think this is one of the films where if you mention it around other film lovers they will say how great it is, but if you were to really ask them about a certain scene (example the stupid ending)they would have no response because they probably have never watched it and just read a critics review in order to fit in.
