  Superior Horror Film...

*A young couple move into an apartment with. they are befriended by an charming elderly couple. However, the elderly couple turn out to be a little mysterious.
*This is a great film that has lasted the task of time. Directed by a master of Film Noir Polanski, the film has a great picture. Unlike modern day horrors this is very subtle yet very creepy. Its a film for Thinkers. It strangely reminded me of some of the early Coen Brothers films.

  Timeless classic

There is no question about it: this film is a classic and a very good one too! There is not one thing about it anyone could dislike. If they do - they don't know what a good film is. An absolute must-see!

  Genuinely Creepy

For a film over 40 years old, this holds up really well. Great performances all round and expert direction from Polanski. Proof that a good story in the right hands can make for a very effective supernatural thriller.

  Freaky!

| | See all DiamondsAreForever's reviews (459)

Unlike the horrors of today, no special effects here just good old fashioned cinema. A creepy couple befriend two young parents to be, but its not all it appears! I can understand why this film recieved so much attention, it really doesn't compare to the so-called horrors of today. An enjoyable movie that will leave you thinking afterwards.

  "The swinging world of Yamaha."

Polanskis masterpiece works on as many levels as the upmarket apartment block its set in. Is Mia Farrow the victim of a Satanic cult? a lazy husband? or simply a troubled first pregnancy?
The film is so rich with pastel colour it could be a prototype for an Ikea advert. The colour schemes would be borrowed years later by Tim Burton to heighten reality in his Edward Scissorhands-but only Polanski could have them hint at the demonic. His servants of evil come with deserts and house keeping tips-not with fire and brimstone.
In fact the whole film comes off as a sitcom about troublesome neighbours and social climbing-a kind of Fawlty Towers meets Twin Peaks meets Three up, Two down. The real evil is greed and ambition driven by material possession and not the kind usually associated with Lucifer.
All that being said Rosemarys Baby is frightening. The dream sequence is stunning in its design and execution-Polanski showing his own twisted genius. And that ending...
