Staff Reviews


Now a horror classic, Rosemary's Baby finds the titular character eager to start a family with her husband in their new NYC apartment. Unease sets in as their eccentric neighbors take a disturbing interest in Rosemary and her future child. Told from Rosemary's perspective, this brand of 'domestic horror' explores the potential terrors of pregnancy and the claustrophobic dread of 60's housewifery. A goreless and beautifully paced psychological thriller that has stood the test of time.

— From Dean

Description


Rosemary Woodhouse and her struggling actor husband Guy move into the Bramford, an old New York City apartment building with an ominous reputation and mostly elderly residents. Neighbors Roman and Minnie Castavet soon come nosing around to welcome the Woodhouses to the building, and despite Rosemary's reservations about their eccentricity and the weird noises that she keeps hearing, her husband takes a special shine to them. Shortly after Guy lands a plum Broadway role, Rosemary becomes pregnant, and the Castavets start taking a special interest in her welfare. As the sickened Rosemary becomes increasingly isolated, she begins to suspect that the Castavets' circle is not what it seems...
