      Rosemary's Baby: Top Notch Horror Movie

      A horror movie with a superlative level, or one of my favorites. How could it be so scary? The most special thing is that it did not have the usual jump-scare technique throughout the whole process, and it still achieved the effect. I believe it is the same when you watch thriller movies. Always beware of sudden shocks, but it is easy to be unexpectedly successful by them, and then curse in the heart. The "Conjuring" series is famous for its proper use, and it is very...

      Real and unreal nightmare

      Produced by Paramount in 1968, it is a classic of modern horror movies. The film tells the story of a young couple who rents an old house in New York at a cheap price, but the house has horrific rumors of suicide, cannibalism, witchcraft and so on. The neighbors are an eccentric old couple whose adopted daughter committed suicide but behaved indifferently. One day, the husband said that he wanted to have a child, and Rosemary had a nightmare that night, dreaming that she was raped by an ugly...

      a slightly longer review

      Questions: 1. Why is there a background music for Alice in every scene in her kitchen? 2. What's going on with Dr. Hill? The 1968 movie, a horror movie with no scary scenes, was tricked into watching the first episode of NBC's adaptation of the Devil's Child, and couldn't help but watch the original. Guy is really chilling. I think it's still wrong to finally compromise with Satan because of a mother's love. If I hadn't watched that episode before, my expectations for this movie and the...

      Where is the horror

      In the first hour and a half of the whole film, the process of a woman's pregnancy is described, without any terrifying imagination and pictures. Until the film turns into the latter half an hour, the horror begins to appear.
      1. A husband who is like a scumbag makes the woman feel that her relatives cannot be trusted, and makes the audience grit their teeth in hatred.
      2. The female protagonist is looking for help objects indiscriminately. Her friends and parents are not asked for...

      A few things I don't understand

      There are a few things that a good movie doesn't understand.

      The first point is does rosemary's previous tenant really exist? If so why put the cabinet against that door?

      Second, what does the existence of the woman who jumped off the building inexplicably mean? Why die?

      Thirdly, what do the lines of the nun and Mary mean when Mary lies in bed after the woman who jumped off the building? ? ? I don't understand at all.

      Fourth, what is tannis? Confused?

      In the...

      The soundtrack matches the repressed emotions of the film very well. The lonely poor Rosemary can't even trust and rely on the people closest to her, feeling...

      After watching the movie, I dreamed at night that I was the mother of a pair of boys. The eldest son was weak and sickly due to premature birth, and he did not recognize each other until a few years later. It is undeniable that this movie is very well done, and the horror is not on the outside, but on the inside. Don't want to say it's an anti-religious movie, it's just about a mother who loves him even if her own flesh and blood is the...

      Most of the first part has a strong sense of powerlessness. I feel a little bloody scene in the back. It is completely contrasted by the normal...

      When you find that everyone around you, including the closest people, is designing yourself, no one is reliable, and no one believes in yourself, what a terrifying...

      When I saw it at the end, I was worried that I would give the baby a shot, but fortunately I didn't~ I felt like vomiting when I saw the image of the aunt. Is it the sequelae of playing with corpses? ....

    • Joan Jellico, Rosemary's Girlfriend: You dirty stinking secret keeper!

    • Minnie Castevet: Now! That's what I call the long arm of coincidence!

    • Dr. Abe Sapirstein: Come with us quietly, Rosemary. Don't argue or make a scene. Because if you say anything more about witches or witchcraft, we're gonna be forced to take you to a mental hospital. You don't want that, do you?
