Oct. 28: Rosemary’s Baby

Rosemary’s Baby (Roman Polansky, 1968)
Sun. Oct 28 9 :10; City Cinema
Mia Farrow, John Cassavetes, Ruth Gordon

A young couple moves in to an apartment only to be surrounded by peculiar neighbors and occurrences. When the wife becomes mysteriously pregnant, paranoia over the safety of her unborn child begins to control her life.

 A look at contemporary witchcraft and devil worship, the film is also a true feminist tale in that it clearly illustrates the way a woman can be used by men and even other women as a vessel, as well as demonstrating how society can perceive a pregnant woman as paranoid and unstable. A wholly engrossing experience, Rosemary’s Baby is the best kind of paranoid entertainment, the kind wherein everything that has come in earlier scenes gains new meaning as the plot reveals itself. ” Dave Stewart – Bloody Terror
