Product Description

Product Description

Exciting horror film with Mia Farrow as an innocent pregnant wife betrayed by her ambitious husband to a cult of devil-worshippers.

From Amazon.co.uk

Horror films don't get much better than this. Even 30 years later, Roman Polanski's adaptation of Ira Levin's bestselling book can still give you the willies. Mia Farrow plays Rosemary, a young wife in New York living in an old apartment building (actually, the Dakota) with a strange history. When her actor-husband (John Cassavetes) befriends their elderly neighbours (Ruth Gordon, who won an Oscar for her performance, and Sidney Blackmer), things start to go right in his career--but she becomes pregnant and begins to have strange premonitions about both the baby and her neighbours. Polanski keeps you on the edge of your seat, using strong performances as well as skilful editing and camerawork to prove that you don't need a knife-wielding serial killer to scare the pants off an audience. --Marshall Fine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The horror in "Rosemary's Baby" is the horror of betrayal and powerlessness. There are few shock moments (excluding a misjudged devil's costume with hairy arms - Wlliam Castle, the schlock producer's influence, no doubt who even makes a sub-Hitchcockian appearance in a minute cameo) in the 137 minute running time. However this is immaterial as the strength of the film rests in the classy direction (surely one of Polanski's finest achievements) excellent performances and the sophisticated and incremental paranoia it generates along with the copious black comedy lurking just below the film's surface which perfectly captures the chilling banality of evil.

No character should or can be trusted in the world which Rosemary inhabits once she is installed in her New York apartment. Her husband, the neighbours, her doctor, the elevator boy are all potentially sinister figures and even Rosemary herself could quite easily be unhinged too - and this feeling of relativism and uncertainty permeates the action for most of the film.

What an actor will do to gain a role in a new TV series is the deliciously ironic central plot premise in this, heavily 60's production, which does for "old folks" what Spielberg did for sharks and despite it's length, the film just speeds by to it's extraordinary and movingly horrific conclusion.

This Paramount Blu Ray has quite good definition and sports a totally satisfactory audio transfer too even if it doesn't wow.
I have not seen the Region A locked, highly celebrated, Criterion version but this edition seems fine by me. The definition is generally very good, the colour saturation acceptable, the contrast and black levels good too for a film of it's period and the grain is present but not intrusive. It is considerably cheaper than the Criterion version as well, and although it doesn't have the extras available of that edition, which were also present on the earlier SD DVD, it is still highly recommended.

Rosemary's Baby is regarded by many as Roman Polanski's finest achievement. Although it is now 32 years since Poland's enfant terrible brought his adapation of Ira Levin's 1967 novel to the screen, it stands up well to the test of time. Starring Mia Farrow, Ruth Gordon, and John Cassavetes, Rosemary's Baby is a stylish and brilliantly executed set piece, accurately reflecting the New York of the late 1960's.
Set in the famous Dakota building - later to become infamous, following the senseless assassination of John Lennon, on its' doorsteps some two decades later - this masterpiece of suspense will chill even the most hot blooded spine. Polanski coaxed brilliant performances from his stellar cast, also featuring Sidney Blackmer, and Ralph Bellamy as Rosemary's insidious gynacologist, and Ruth Gordon won an Academy Award for her star turn as the nosy parker next door.
Rosemary's Baby is not simply a classic tale of suspense and horror, but a fine example of how a feature film of the genre need not lose it's impact when viewed on the small screen. A 20th century classic! 5 stars. Kym Jones

Indeed Rosemary's Baby is a classic but let's get the bad points out of the way first. Some scenes are awkward, Mia Farrow and her new found friend in the washing room really doesn't belong in a movie hailed as a classic. Terrible dialogue and acting from both. Farrow seems to change accents throughout the movie, even in her same lines which is a little off putting. However she is terrific in this role as the quiet naive woman who senses over the films two hours that something is very wrong. The movie has been directed much like Nicolas Roeg's classic, Don't Look Now, that classic 70s look of chopping and changing scenes during dialogue. Rosemary's Baby is also very sexually aware of itself, and one could say with all validity was the bridge between censorship issues and what would follow in the glorious 70s.

The movie was shot in the Dakota Buildings, and looks dreadfully eerie, director Roman Polanski makes New York like that too, which all fits with the mood of the film. John Cassavetes has some great lines and is particulary good, though isn't needed once he plays his cards too early. But two actors outstage Farrow and Cassavetes and that is their old nosey could be witch neighbours played delightfully well by Ruth Gordon and Sidney Blackmer.

Rosemary's Baby may well be lost on a younger horror generation, but the movie works on so many levels. For example we have all had nosey neighbours that interfere and the film of course on a technical level is great.

When a young couple, played by Mia Farrow and John Cassavetes, move into a new apartment, they are befriended by their upstairs neighbours, an elderly couple, played by Ruth Gordon and Sidney Blackmer. As time goes by their behaviour becomes more and more weirder.

Directed by Roman Polanski, the film is mostly set in the Dakota building in New York, which is an old Gothic building, and suits the purpose well. I already had this film on dvd, and wondered if the upgrade would be worth it. Upon researching the blu ray, I found a screen capture of the title. On the dvd the 'Y' in baby was at the edge of the screen and partly missing, on the screen capture it was there, with loads of room to spare. (Although on the box to the dvd it says the image is 1.85:1 anamorphic). I compared the picture area between the two, and there was more picture area visible on the blu ray. When the blu ray arrived I put it in, and immediately, not only was there more picture area, but the colour of the titles were more vibrant. In comparison the titles on the dvd look faded. The colours are substantially more vivid on this blu ray release, and the image is also sharper than the dvd.

The transfer is in the original aspect ratio of 1.85:1. As mentioned above the colours are vivid, and the image is sharp. Sound is in 2.0.

Final word: If you are a fan of this film, then the upgrade to blu ray is definitely worth it.
