Friday Flicks: Rosemary's Baby

Rosemary's Baby (1968) is the third movie in my Spooky October series and was inspired by the novel by Ira Levin. It's a "horror story of Satanism and the occult set in modern-day Manhattan." Levin also wrote "The Stepford Wives." Stephen King described Levin as "the Swiss watchmaker of suspense novels, he makes what the rest of us do look like cheap watchmakers in drugstores."

It was not the kind of thing that had been done to often - a really gothic horror story told not in some far away castle in Something-vania, but right in a brownstone in New York City. A classic tale of terror, and the book is equally worth revisiting! Excellent choice, Luana!

Craig: The book is terrific. Even though you know what's going to happen, you can't put it down. And the movie adaptation was well done. Polanski did a good job with the screenplay.
