The movie -- although is it pleasant -- doesn't seem to work on any of its dark or powerful terms.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

A Ross Hunter-type gloss cannily deformed by anxiety and the gnomish grins of familiar Hollywood faces

Flawlessly constructed "slow-burn" horror tale

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 terrifying thriller that is held up by its incredible ensemble cast, and all too logical premise.

A film that is as chilling now as it was back in 1968.

Several exhilarating milestones are achieved in Rosemary's Baby, an excellent film version of Ira Levin's diabolical chiller novel.
