Modern 4 hour mini-series adaptation of the classic novel by Ira Levin focusing on young Rosemary Woodhouse's suspicions that her neighbors may belong to a Satanic cult who are hell bent on getting one thing: the baby she is carrying.
Patrick J. Adams,
A young couple moves in to an apartment only to be surrounded by peculiar neighbors and occurrences. When the wife becomes mysteriously pregnant, paranoia over the safety of her unborn child begins to control her life.
Damien the Antichrist, now thirteen years old, finally learns of his destiny under the guidance of an unholy disciple of Satan. Meanwhile dark forces begin to eliminate all those who suspect the child's true identity.
This is one of the two documentary on my library's DVD of Rosemary's Baby. It's 16 and a half minutes long.
It consists of a series of, well, interviews with the cast and crew of the movie, all done a number of years later, some specifically for this piece. Occasionally, the editing jumps between them when two people have different(not to be confused with contradictory; what I mean is that they each express where they were coming from) things to say on the same exact subject. There are film clips, as well. The other documentary, The Making Of, has lots of behind-the-scenes footage, and those who put together the picture itself recorded what they say in it back when it came out, which in general appears to be when it was made.
This gives you a good amount of information on how they came to make the feature, a lot of it before they started filming. Who they considered for the main couple. Redford or Nicholson were almost chosen. They talk about why they picked the supporting players that they did, and how happy they were with them(you didn't expect to be spared the typical lovefest, did you?).
I recommend this to anyone interested in knowing more. 7/10
