Movie Review: Rosemary’s Baby (1968)

Guy and Rosemary move into a new apartment. How a jobbing actor and a housewife afford their huge apartment is never explained. Their apartment building has a dark history but they don’t pay much attention. Guy is a burk and Rosemary flits around in clothes that make her look like she’s 5 years old.

The couple are forcibly befriended by their loud tacky elderly neighbours. After a bizarre dream sequence, Rosemary learns she is pregnant. She is forced by her neighbours and controlling burk husband to change doctors and her new doctor is patronising.

Rosemary is isolated and in pain. She is controlled and yelled at by her burk husband and betrayed. She soon realises she is surrounded by lying, conspiring annoying people. Does a book entitled ‘All Of Them Witches’ have the answers? This is okay but is full of annoying characters and what is the thing in the cradle at the end?

Best Lines:
I was tempted to write the management that you were drug addicts and litter bugs.”

“This house has a high incident of unpleasant happenings.”

“He has his father’s eyes.”
