July 16, 2016
Polanski is less interested in terror and shock than in creating a mood of paranoia and instability. He finds the eerie in the mundane...
July 9, 2015
One of the best-shot, best-scored, and best-acted supernatural thrillers ever made.
Full Review | Original Score: 9/10
June 11, 2015
Right to its bitter end, there is no escaping "Rosemary's Baby." On film Ira Levin's best selling novel is as horribly frightening as it was on paper.
October 13, 2014
A Ross Hunter-type gloss cannily deformed by anxiety and the gnomish grins of familiar Hollywood faces
October 7, 2013
Rosemary's Baby is suffused with Polanski's style and preoccupations.
Full Review | Original Score: A
October 7, 2013
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
November 16, 2012
A terrifying thriller that is held up by its incredible ensemble cast, and all too logical premise.
October 29, 2012
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
October 10, 2012
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

'Rosemary's Baby' presents the dark and the light and allows for choice: does she or doesn't she?
August 15, 2011
A spellbinding horror film from Roman Polanski.

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.
February 12, 2009
Polanski worked with an elegant restraint that less talented filmmakers have been trying to mimic ever since.
Full Review | Original Score: A-
October 30, 2008
One of the finest horror films ever made.
October 30, 2008
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
October 29, 2008
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.
October 28, 2008
Get your fix of Mia Farrow looking terrified in Roman Polanski's iconic 1968 thriller Rosemary's Baby.
