Rosemary's Baby

5

A near-perfect adaptation of Ira Levin's chilling bestseller, Roman Polanski's US debut is to expectant mothers what garlic is to vampires. Mia Farrow excels as the pretty young thing who suspects she's carrying the spawn of Satan, but it's Polanski who emerges as the real star, his subtle direction finding menace in sunlight, isolation in New York and sheer, screaming terror in the miracle of birth.
