Plot – Spoilers:
A young couple, Rosemary and Guy, move into an NY apartment. Guy is a struggling actor who’s been missing out on breakthrough roles by a whisker while Rosemary is a homely girl looking forward to motherhood. The apartment building has a history tied to the occult, but that angle amuses rather than intimidates the couple. Their immediate concern is an old neighbor couple who are excessively nosy. But as new tenants still making their home, Rosemary and Guy try to adjust and welcome the elderly intrusions politely.

The young couple soon discover a kid is on the way and Guy’s career gets on a fortuitous upswing. But as Rosemary deals with her pregnancy, she finds Guy increasingly distant, and the old folk who keep popping in around her, menacing and creepy.

    Huge thanks for uploading this ,can’t believe I found this site it’s excellent as
    An absolute classic ! Everything about this film from the cinematography to the film score is fantastic ,can’t help though always wanting to give Mia Farrow a bit of a shake because she always plays the subordinate in every film she does .
    The weird thing is ,I own a n exact replica of that silver locket that was given to Rosemary .I bought it in an antique shop in East Sussex UK.and after I.paid for it the young lady who owned the shop said it was her mother’s & her mother was a tarot reader & they’d been experiencing poltergheist activity in their enormous Georgian house in Hove…Anyway about a week later I was wearing the necklace & it contains some sort of weird black scented crystal/ stone and Rosemary’s Baby was shown on tv I nearly flipped out when I.realised it was the exact same necklace! Since found out that they originated from Turkey /Middle East & given to pregnant women..creepy !

      That’s a cool story of synchronicities…I also experienced the same meaningful coincidence with the movie The Omen 3, the painting at Damien’s office resembles the holographic painting that’s hung on my wall.

    What a great old movie this is. Enough to make me look past two of my least favorite “Hollywood not-so-greats” Mia Farrow and especially John “The mean-ass drunk” Cassavetes. My father had the displeasure of working with John on a couple of those cheesy biker flicks back in the 60s… and I remember meeting him several times. He always smelled like alcohol and was kinda mean. I remember the first time when my Dad brought me to the set and John looked at me and said “What the fuck is that little shit doing here?” My father told him that I was his little shit and to go have another drink and not worry about it. I remember the whole time they were filming, he kept looking at me and giving me dirty looks.
