Young newlyweds Rosemary and Guy Woodhouse move into an eerie apartment building in New York City. They begin hearing strange rumours about the history of the building and the previous tenant of the apartment. Soon tragic events start happening, escalating after they meet their peculiar, eccentric neighbours. One night, Rosemary, after eating dinner with her husband, falls into a seemingly drug-induced, dreamlike state, and she has a vision of taking part in a strange ritual, during which a child is conceived. Suspecting a dark conspiracy, Rosemary starts fearing for the safety of her unborn baby...
Based on the bestselling novel by Ira Levin, and produced by William Castle, this masterpiece by Roman Polanski not only marks the beginning of the era of modern horror but also transcends the limits of genre cinema. Rosemary's Baby is now considered by many film historians and critics to be the best film made by Polanski, and is also widely acclaimed as one of the most important American movies of the 60's.
