Rosemary’s Baby (1968)

Part of The Blog Cabin’s 31 Days of Spooky Fun 2017 Series


Rosemary’s Baby is a psychological thriller supreme.

Life seems like a fairy tale for Rosemary and Guy Woodhouse.

Newly married, young, beautiful, wealthy – what else could they possibly want?

How about a baby?

That seems like a perfect idea until nightmares, strange occurrences, and peculiar people start to intertwine with the happy couple’s daily lives.

Rosemary is completely overcome with paranoia.  Or is it?

This is not a fast and furious horror movie.  As the story unfolds, you completely feel the anxiety and desperation Rosemary’s Baby conveys.  At just over 2 hours, I was completely exhausted when it was over.  Not to mention I was left pondering the ending hours later.

If fashion and style is your thing, Mia Farrow’s pixie cut in this film made Vidal Sassoon’s career soar for decades.

This is a classic.  All the hype this movie has gotten over the years is well deserved. See it at least once in your lifetime.
