Rosemary's Baby is suffused with Polanski's style and preoccupations.
| Original Score: A
It's one of the most powerful films ever made about Devil worship because Polanski expertly winds up the paranoia with spooky atmospherics and morbid humour.
| Original Score: 5/5
A terrifying thriller that is held up by its incredible ensemble cast, and all too logical premise.
So long as there are men in power who are still fuzzy on the definition of rape, Rosemary's Baby will endure as a cautionary tale.
| Original Score: 4/4
Mia Farrow excels as the pretty young thing who suspects she's carrying the spawn of Satan, but it's Polanski who emerges as the real star.
'Rosemary's Baby' presents the dark and the light and allows for choice: does she or doesn't she?
A spellbinding horror film from Roman Polanski.
Four decades later, Polanski's supremely mounted horror thriller holds up extremely well.
...a bona fide classic of the horror genre...
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Keep children away from this scary classic.
| Original Score: 4/5
Even readers of the book who know how Baby comes out are in for a pleasant surprise: the very real acting ability of Mia Farrow.
Polanski worked with an elegant restraint that less talented filmmakers have been trying to mimic ever since.
| Original Score: A-
One of the finest horror films ever made.
Weird obstetricians, mysterious night noises and even Farrow's improvised stroll into actual oncoming traffic add up to a bustling nightmare that's spawned many a Black Swan since.
Having escaped the horrors of the Nazi Holocaust in Poland by the skin of his teeth, Mr. Polanski was well equipped psychologically to re-imagine what was, before Rosemary's Baby, a B-picture genre into an A-picture genre.
Get your fix of Mia Farrow looking terrified in Roman Polanski's iconic 1968 thriller Rosemary's Baby.
Roman Polanski somehow brought his brand of paranoid horror to the Hollywood mainstream with rousing success.
... a serious effort that gradually and carefully constructs a mounting sense of paranoia ...
Roman Polanski's horror classic is literally pregnant with paranoia.... Arguably the finest American horror movie of the 1960s.
Several exhilarating milestones are achieved in Rosemary's Baby, an excellent film version of Ira Levin's diabolical chiller novel.
