Rosemary’s Baby

Rosemary’s Baby is a supernatural, psychological thriller about a young couple who move into an apartment building in New York and are embraced by their neighbors.  Then, things start to get strange.  Unbeknownst to Rosemary, her husband has made a deal with the devil that leads to the horrifying ending.  There’s no blood, guts or gore, just a great scary movie.  Made in 1968, this movie has that great 1960’s look and feel.  An interesting fact:  Much of the movie was shot in and around The Dakota, the Upper West Side co-op apartment building where John Lennon lived and was killed.

    My mom has always talked about this movie and how scary it was, but I’ve never seen it. I always figured it was a bit of a gore fest. Thanks to you and Ann and now have a long list of old movies I need to track down!

    Oh! Guess WHAT? When my gramma was pregnant with my mom, she READ THAT BOOK! And then, guess what else??? My MOM was born on the same date as Rosemary’s Baby! Isn’t that spoooky? But a far a I know, my grampa didn’t make a deal with the devil or anything and my mom turned out okay.

    Wiggles & Wags,

      Spooky! I haven’t read the book, but it’s on my “to read” list. I’m excited about Rescue Me Week too. So generous of you to sponsor this. I think Grampa J is absolutely tickled about this. It will be fun to read about the pups, and I can’t wait to hear the stories “after.” I have my five dogs all picked out. No surprise, they are all Greyhounds from the group I am playing for, Allies for Greyhounds of West Michigan. Thank you, Mayzie.
