Recaps for Rosemary's Baby

What's Hot Today


To call the new Rosemary's Baby a reinterpretation of the source material would be, at best, an exaggeration. Rather, the four-hour miniseries premiering this weekend on NBC is more a  straight retelling of Roman Polanski's 1968 film, based on the novel by Ira Levin. In director Agnieszka Holland's 2014 version, the story takes place in modern-day Paris instead of New York City, and stars Zoe Saldana (Star Trek, Avatar) as the titular Rosemary Woodhouse, with Patrick J. Adams stepping into the role of Rosemary's husband, Guy, now an aspiring author instead of actor.  Read More... //

'Rosemary's Baby' Review: A Disappointing Reimagining of a Classic

There's only one reason to remake a horror classic like Rosemary's Baby : to update it to appeal to a new (and younger) audience. Fans of the original, the story of a woman (Mia Farrow) whose husband (John Cassavetes) rents out her womb to the devil in exchange for career success, aren't likely to find much reason to tune into NBC's miniseries version other than out of sheer curiosity. Millenials, or anyone who refuses to acknowledge any film shot before the 80s, might find some redeeming qualities in this otherwise unimpressive reimagining.   Read More... //

‘Rosemary's Baby’ Reviews: Few Critics Want to Hold NBC's Ugly, Evil Baby

NBC's two-part remake of Roman Polanski's 1968 classic film “Rosemary's Baby” will begin haunting network television Sunday night. And apparently if viewers waste their time watching the Zoe Saldana vehicle, it will also haunt their dreams. After all, the new version — which stars Saldana in the titular role and Patrick J. Adams as her husband — is somewhat of a nightmare, according to some of the top critics around the web. David Hinckley of the New York Daily News gives “Rosemary's Baby” two out of five stars, saying that the miniseries genre doesn't breathe any “fresh life” into the project. “Turning a taut two-hour film into a four-hour series … too often only dilutes the tension and suspense.”   Read More... s //

Rosemary’s Baby Can't Escape the Influence of Papa Polanski

  The TV remake of Rosemary's Baby is just smart enough that its badness really stings. If you want to get technical, it's not really a "remake," but another stab at adapting Ira Levin's novel. The first, of course, was Roman Polanski's classic 1968 version, starring Mia Farrow as the devil baby incubator in the Vidal Sassoon cut and John Cassavetes as her actor husband, a coldly ambitious boor who pimped wifey to Old Nick for career success. This miniseries version keeps some memorable images and shocks from the Polanski version and adds more plot, characters, gore, and dream sequences, and relocates the whole thing from New York City to Paris. Why?  Read More... //
