Rosemary’s Baby

Directed by Roman Polanski

Movie poster for “Rosemary’s Baby”.

Another classic – from 1968! – I’ve never seen before. It’s deservedly highly respected! This must have inspired so many horror-movies after it. I can’t recall an earlier (horror) movie with that “secret backdoor” element, the “nosy neighbour cliché”, the “is the protagonist going crazy or is she right?”-storyline, or that “look through the door spy”-shot. And there are probably even more firsts in there.

Hail chocolate mouse! Hail Satan! Hail Rosemary’s Baby!
