Newlyweds Rosemary and Guy Woodhouse move into a The Bramford, a Manhattan apartment, finding aberrant neighbors including the Castevets, who take an interest in the couple. Rosemary's subsequent pregnancy proves problematic, developing into a paranoia which is perhaps justifiable. Horror classic under the masterful and nuanced direction of Roman Polanski.

Review by Joey (posted on 4-Sep-2005)
I read the novel and I loved this movie. I think the movie was fairly close to the book. It will always be one of my all time favorties.
The acting was well done. Mia Farrow and John Cassavetes represented (to me) the quintessential American couple living in New York city. When Cassevetes (Guy Woodhouse) gets the acting job he wants because his competition goes blind I felt at this point the suspicion of "something eerie" starts to permiate into the plot. It was something I would expect out of Cassavetes' charater. There was nothing "ordinary" about him as a person and actor. I am a real fan of this type of horror movie and couldn't wait to see more. The quirky Ruth Gordon and the ever serious Sidney Blackmer were perfect in the rolls of Mini and Roman Castevet. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys something that's a little "out there."
