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.
ruth gordon stole the show as minnie. her character is so lovable yet so terrifying. Minnie is truly a one of a kind horror villain.
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 !
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.
One of my favourite movies
Classic film. Great cast. Directed by Roman Polanski. This is what gave Polanski the cred to get hired by Paul Tate, a government agent in charge of psy-ops to discredit hippies during the Vietnam war. Horror movie veteran Polanski staged the phony Tate Murders crime scene for the Charles Manson boogeyman fairy tale. His marriage to Sharon was a sham and she was never murdered. That whole Manson story is just as phony as the Apollo Moon Landings and Sandy Hook. Still, this movie is fantastic and I have to tip my hat to that creep Polanski. 5 stars. Take your tin foil hat comments and stuff them up your asses you suckers. 5 foot 2 inch 90 pound weakling Charles Manson was the most dangerous man alive? I’m 6 foot 4 and I would have beat the ever living fuck out of that little twerp when he was at his prime. You bought that story about how Manson wanted to start a race war the blacks would win so he could become king of the world and that is why Sharon Tate had to die? Please. The politicians lie to you and fuck you over everyday. Wake up you woke fucks.
