This was Roman Polanski's very first adaptation, and it is very faithful to the novel. Pieces of dialog, color schemes and clothes are taken verbatim. See more »
When Rosemary comes home and makes her first complaint of her pregnancy pain to Guy she goes to sit on the sofa and a Scrabble game board is seen on the coffee table. When Hutch comes to visit a few scenes later, several days have passed in the plot and the Scrabble board is still in the exact same place even though Rosemary and Guy played a game of Scrabble in between these two scenes.

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.
