Summary
  • After unwittingly becoming friendly with a coven of witches and warlocks, a young wife is impregnated by the Devil
  • "Possibly the best horror film ever made, this brilliant adaptation of Ira Levin's best-selling novel is the story of a loving New York City couple who are expecting their first child. Like most first-time mothers, Rosemary experiences confusion and fear. Her husband, an ambitious but unsuccessful actor, makes a pact with the devil that promises to send his career skyward. Director Roman Polanski elicits uniformly extraordinary performances from the all-star cast. Ruth Gordon won an Oscar for her performance as an oversolicitous next-door neighbor in this classic thriller."--Container
