Movie Review: Rosemary's Baby (1968)

Rosemary's Baby (1968)
Starring: Mia Farrow, John Casavettes, Ruth Gordon, Sidney Blackmer
Summary: When Rosemary and her husband, Guy, move into a new apartment their new neighbors seem the bee's knees. Soon, Rosemary becomes pregnant and all is not well with things across the hall (or upstairs, I forget where they live.)

My Thoughts: I constantly hear about Rosemary's Baby and I would never get the references, but now I have finally seen it and boy, am I glad I did. This movie was a basket of fun! It isn't scary nor is it going to make you jump out of your seat, but it is very creepy. It's a traditional, old-school whimsical horror movie. It's more of a thriller than a horror movie, but also, it's a cinematic masterpiece! You're thinking and feeling all these feelings throughout the movie and you don't want to believe what's happened, but it is. It's happening.

While I haven't read the book (But I ordered it soon after finishing the movie), it has a plot and a story that's gripping and I was intrigued to the very end. While, the acting could have been a bit more realistic, keep in mind that this is according to today's standards. Since this movie was released a while ago, I guess that can make up for the weirdness of the acting. It's living up to long ago's standards and that's how people lived. 

Another wonderful thing is Rosemary or Mia Farrow. She was a ray of sunshine placed in a living hell. She's a classic and makes her role believable. She goes from an everyday woman, to a doe-eyed naive teenager to insane pregnant woman without so much as batting an eyelash and you're feeling for her at all times. Her neighbors were also great as well, being sweet and sinister all at the same time. You wouldn't expect these old people who are so damn sweet to be...so...evil. 

Rosemary's Baby is unnerving, it's eerie, it's creepy and I loved every single minute of it. 

(Haunt-Ober will continue tomorrow, I just wanted to get this out.)
