Classic Trailers: ROSEMARY'S BABY
Wednesday's classic film trailers is one the finest made psycho-horror films ever made in Roman Polanski's Rosemary's Baby. Full of mood, unsettling nature and that uncomfortable feeling of dread, fear and horror that we see Rosemary go through and how she slowly unravels the suspicion and mystery. The acting is in top form with Rosemary (Mia Farrow) and her husband Guy (John Cassavetes). These two deliver compelling performances along with the married neighbors they meet, Minnie (oscar winner for supporting actress Ruth Gordon) and Roman (Sidney Blackmer). The real credit is the source material, from Ira Lewin's best-selling novel and the director Roman Polanski. This was Polanski's first English language film and what a magnificent piece of filmmaking. Polanski is brilliant with the actors and his screenplay slowly brings the story from a couple moving into a new building, to wanting to have a baby, becoming pregnant and Rosemary believing a Satanic cult is trying to steal her baby. Everything is as close to perfect as a film can be. Enjoy.
