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 …

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 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 …

"Rosemary's Baby" rules. One of Ira Levin's best stories makes an effortless translation to the big screen thanks to a script that sticks very close to the source, a stellar cast, and the craft of Roman Polanski. The weird thing about "Rosemary's Baby" is that it's generally considered to be a horror movie, and yet there is very little of the supernatural in it. Sure it involves a coven of witches who conspire to impregnate Rosemary with child of the devil himself, but aside from one hallucinatory scene where the devil may actually manifest, "Rosemary's Baby" is really a conspiracy film. The horror is not in the fact that Rosemary is going to give birth to the Devil's child; we already know this going into the film. What's scary about it is how Rosemary is completely unaware that …
