Amazing, classic film. Rosemary's Baby builds slowly but effectively under the great direction from Polanski, its good script, and brilliant lead performance by Mia Farrow. An absolute must-see that is probably one of the best horror films ever made.

Having heard over and over that this was one of the best horror movies of all time, I finally rented this movie. And boy does it suck on every level possible. One of Roman Polankski's worst movies. Its slow, boring and NOT SCARY AT ALL. There is no tension. There is no drama. Just a really overrated terrible movie. Mia Farrow is as bad in this movie as she is in every single Woody Allen movie she starred in.

There's about 2/3 of this film that is unsettling and genuinely terrifying, due, for the most part, to the believable acting of Mia Farrow and atmospheric direction of Polanski. The remaining 1/3, however, is over-the-top ludicrous and corny, and that ruined the film for me.

Rosemary's Baby - Movie Review

Rosemary's Baby is a work of sheer brilliance that left me in complete awe. The music, the direction, the cast, and the atmosphere is everything that some modern horror should take notes on.

Roman Polanski is a master of his craft and he perfectly builds up the tension in every scene that makes the mystery even more engaging, as you the audience get interested in what's going on like Mia Farrow character. Speaking of Mia Farrow, shes pretty damn amazing in this and one of her best performance I've seen from her. The same goes to the rest of the cast, especially John Cassavetes and Ruth Gordon.

The movie is a slow burn, but the pay off is satisfying and I always like that in movies when everything adds up to the end. You Know what, I'm kinda disappointed that I didn't watch this so...

An American Classic.

This brilliant seventies gem based off the novel of the same name by Ira Levin is definitely one of the best American horror films. With an exceptional cast, masterful direction and a tight, powerful script this film definitely is a fine example of how it has done. Very little is shown onscreen and the horror is dependent on Farrow's performance. This is one of those movies that doesn't quite have the same impact when you are young but as you age the movie takes on nuance and depth. Another stand out is the music score and how it manages to deliver the right mixture of beauty and creepiness. Basically, there are very few weaknesses to the film and there is something very powerful about how the very basic instinct of motherhood can used against you.

Rosemary's Baby review

Rosemary Woodhouse (Mia Farrow) and struggling actor husband Guy (John Cassavetes) conceive a baby. She experiences a realistic dream that involves Satan and naked old people staring at her. Screenplay was effective with a few good lines from the picture: Roman – “God is dead! Satan lives! The year is One, the year is One! God is dead! Why don't you help us out, Rosemary? Be a real mother to Adrian. You don't have to join if you don't want to. Just be a mother to your baby. Minnie and Laura-Louise are too old. It's not right. Think about it, Rosemary.” “You don't need to have respect for him because he pretends that he's holy.” Rosemary – “This is no dream, this is really happening!” “Awful things happen in every apartment house.” and “Pain, begone, I will have no more of thee!” The ...
