Iconic psychological horror.
Infamous director Roman Polanski leads his initiates through details of a covert urban ‘coven’ network; multi-pronged ‘gaslighting’ of a targetted victim; and the ritualistic child-abuse of post-modern occultism…
“Possibly the best horror film ever made, this brilliant adaptation of Ira Levin’s best-selling novel is the story of a loving young New York City couple who are expecting their first child. Like most first-time mothers, Rosemary (Mia Farrow) experiences confusion and fear. Her husband (John Cassavetes), an ambitious but unsuccessful actor, makes a pact with the devil that promises to send his career skyward. Director Roman Polanski elicits uniformly extraordinary performances from the all-star cast. Ruth Gordon won an Oscar for her performance as an oversolicitous next-door neighbour in this classic chiller.”
