Rosemary cooks a steak for only a few seconds on each side and then begins eating it, indicating a pregnancy craving for raw meat, but when she cuts into it, it's very obvious the steak is now fully cooked. See more »
This is definitely one of the best horror films ever made. The conspiracy that Rosemary goes throughout the film is truly creepy. What makes it so scary is that she goes trusting her husband and 'friends' without any idea of what really is happening to her. The rape scene is horrifying, very intense and at its best for the horror genre. "Rosemary's Baby" is a great horror film, there are no posessions, no gore, but the film is intense in content. It has power to make the audience nervous, tense and very scared. -********** A perfect 10.
