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.

The brilliance of the film is that it takes this realistic basis and builds upon it with supernatural metaphors that make pregnancy a rich and strange condition.

Superbly acted (especially by bone-thin Farrow and Ruth Gordon as the ultimate neighbor from hell), it's a satantango in the land of Is-this-real-or-am-I-crazy?, with a luridly literal ending that doesn't negate the previous, more interior terrors.

A very sophisticated, very effective piece of work spun from primal images, with an excellent cast.

Polanski's most startling accomplishment is ultimately twisting something as natural as maternal instinct into something horrifying, if not downright monstrous.

It should establish Mia Farrow as an actress of stature and Roman Polanski as a name which will be remembered.

It is a creepy film and a crawly film, and a film filled with things that go bump in the night. It is very good.

Amazing social satire with humor that never detracts from the creep-out factor. The nightmare sequence is sheer perfection.

Rosemary is slow to realize that the menace she senses in her new apartment building has already manifested itself not only in her apartment but in her own body.
