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.
Director Roman Polanski, producer Robert Evans and production designer Richard Sylbert sit down for a look back at the making of ROSEMARY'S BABY. Evans starts off talking about how William Castle owned the property and wanted to direct it but this of course didn't happen. Polanski was slated to direct DOWNHILL RACER but Evans brought him over for this picture. Polanski talks about his influences for the film, his favorite scenes and even his favorite shots. The director also talks about the casting of Mia Farrow, the decision for the lead (both Robert Redford and Jack Nicholson were considered) and what he wanted for the ending of the picture. At under 20-minutes there's certainly nothing ground-breaking here but fans of the film should enjoy hearing these stories. The entire group does a very good job at talking about everything from the making of the film to them knowing that they were making something special and something that was going to effect people. I think a more detailed documentary could be made but at the same time there's no question that this one here does a nice job.
