With Mia Farrow, John Cassavetes, Ruth Gordon, Sidney Blackmer, Maurice Evans, Ralph Bellamy
Directed by Roman Polanski

Roman Polanski took Ira Levin's shocker and turned it into one hell of a controversial movie. With the fragile, skinny Farrow in the lead of the woman chosen to carry the devil's child without her knowledge, Polanski takes us into this seemingly normal world where friendly apartment block neighbours get along swimmingly. With Rosemary's husband in on the deal, she starts to suspect something is far from well, all the players involved messing with her head to try and make her believe she's just paranoid. An intriguing and enthralling film with a hectic finale, and who can forget that great theme track.
PS. Apparently Church of Satan leader Anton LaVey played a cameo as the devil.
