'Rosemary's Baby' is a 1968 American film written and directed by Roman Polanski.It was based on a 1967 best seller novel which was of same name written by Ira Levin.This movie is placed in the wrong genre by most of the websites and movie critiques.I couldn't find much reasons to categorize this movie into the horror genre like most of the other websites.I found the story as dramatic thriller.
Story starts when a young couple moves into their new apartment.What waits them there is the over caring neighbors.When the wife becomes mysteriously pregnant, fear over the safety of her unborn child begins to haunt her.Now even though i have told the story this much,like the tag line of the movie says "It's not what you're expecting".Trust me.
This movie is an edge of the seat dramatic thriller till the climax.Climax might disappoint some of you but if you think about it,you will understand why it's like that.Mia Farrow as Mrs.Rosemary Woodhouse did an awesome job in this movie.Some of the scenes i liked is at the first half of the movie where she is completely innocent and tries to settle down in the new apartment another one is the famous phone booth scene.The whole movie is about Rosemary,so it's almost like a one man show.. sorry, one woman show.It has won several awards including academy award and golden globes.This is a must watch movie if you love thrillers.And since there is some complicated scenes which is a bit hard to understand for kids and plot topic itself is bit heavy for kids, I don't think this movie is suitable for minors.So what are you waiting for,if you haven't watched it yet you are missing one of the best thrillers.
