Rosemary’s Baby

Watch Trailer Director: Roman Polanski
Writer(s): Roman Polanski, Ira Levin
Cast: Mia Farrow, John Cassavetes, Ruth Gordon, Sidney Blackmer
Awards: Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress

Horrifying and darkly comic, Rosemary’s Baby was Roman Polanski’s Hollywood debut. This wildly entertaining nightmare, faithfully adapted from Ira Levin’s best seller, stars a revelatory Mia Farrow as a young mother-to-be who grows increasingly suspicious that her overfriendly elderly neighbors (played by Sidney Blackmer and an Oscar-winning Ruth Gordon) and self-involved husband (John Cassavetes) are hatching a satanic plot against her and her baby. In the decades of occult cinema that Polanski’s ungodly masterpiece has spawned, it has never been outdone for sheer psychological terror.
