Watch Movie The “Rosemary’s Baby” This Weekend On Amazon Prime

Published on January 8th, 2019

A young couple moves in to an apartment only to be surrounded by peculiar neighbors and occurrences. When the wife becomes mysteriously pregnant, paranoia over the safety of her unborn child begins to control her life.

Desirous of starting a family, the young Catholic housewife, Rosemary Woodhouse, and her struggling actor husband, Guy, move into the Bramford, New York’s iconic building which brims with unpleasant stories of obscure dwellers and ghastly occurrences.

Before long, the young couple is befriended by their elderly and somehow eccentric next-door neighbours, Roman and Minnie Castevet–and shortly after–Rosemary unexpectedly gets pregnant.

However, little by little, as the inexperienced mother becomes systematically cut off from her circle and friends, alarming hints of a well-planned and sinister conspiracy will begin to emerge, enfolding Rosemary in a shroud of suspicion and mental agony. In the end, why is everyone so conveniently eager to help; furthermore, why is Guy allowing it?

Movie Reviews: “Rosemary’s Baby

Movie Review: AV Club

In the afterword to the 2003 edition of Ira Levin’s novel Rosemary’s Baby (reprinted in the booklet included with The Criterion Collection’s new Rosemary’s Baby Blu-ray edition), Levin writes about how the success of the movie touched off a wave of occult horror movies in the ’70s, and adds, “Here’s what I worry about now: If I hadn’t pursued an idea for a suspense novel almost 40 years ago, would there be quite as many religious fundamentalists around today?”

Levin’s asking this somewhat puckishly, but it’s a valid question. There had been schlocky B-movies about devil worshippers before, but Roman Polanski’s adaptation of Rosemary’s Baby was a big Hollywood studio prestige project, with high production values and a striking blend of nightmarish fantasy and naturalism. And as Polanski leads the audience step-by-step through Levin’s queasy plot, he pushes them toward a conclusion straight out of a Louvin Brothers gospel song. Oh yes, brethren: Satan is real.

Movie Review: Slant Magazine

Rosemary’s Baby

They land a spacious apartment at the Bramford, a building with an extensive history of macabre occurrences and shady tenants. No sooner have they made friends with eccentric next-door neighbors Roman and Minnie Castevets (Sidney Blackmer and Ruth Gordon) than Rosemary gets pregnant.

Seemingly every old crone in the building starts imposing his or her will on Rosemary’s decision-making progress, from steering her toward their chosen obstetrician to mixing up a vitamin drink of their own concoction in lieu of pill supplements. Why is everyone invading her personal space? And why is her husband letting them?

The middle child in Polanski’s nightmarish apartment trilogy (between Repulsion and The Tenant), Rosemary’s Baby is one of horror cinema’s all-time slow burns, drawing viewers gradually into entertaining the possibility that the movie’s series of strange coincidences and accumulating sense of dread are only subjective representations of Rosemary’s unraveling mental state.

Movie Review: TIME Magazine

Rosemary’s Baby

Satan is not dead. Among other vivid manifestations, he has for the past 14 months been one of the leading characters in Rosemary’s Baby, Ira Levin’s best-selling chiller about the powers of darkness at work in a Manhattan apartment building. Now Old Nick, along with a covey of attendant diabolists, is making Rosemary’s life miserable in a film version by Polish Director Roman Polanski (Knife in the Water, Repulsion). Even readers of the book (2,300,000 copies) who know how Baby comes out are in for a pleasant surprise:
