Rosemary's Baby

She's praying for two...

AKA What Not To Expect When You’re Expecting

Roman Polanski’s first US film remains a horror landmark.

A collision of European aesthetic and American paranoia (how well do we really know our neighbours?), it sticks close to Ira Levin’s novel and still has the power to petrify.

While Oscar-winner Ruth Wilson rampantly scene-steals as an OAP Satanist, this is Mia Farrow’s show.

Bird-like and brilliantly brittle as Rosemary, she’s more than just a Vidal Sassoon haircut, trembling her way to icon status.
