Rosemary's Baby is a horror film that is based on novel by Ira Levin. The film was released in the United States in 1968 with the official tagline "Pray for Rosemary's Baby." In the opening scene, Rosemary Woodhouse (Mia Farrow) and her husband Guy (John Cassavetes) have just moved into a new apartment building in New York City. One evening, Rosemary passes out after eating a chocolate dessert brought to her by a neighbor. She awakens several hours later after a disturbing dream in which she is raped by a demon. Her husband tells her that he did have intercourse with her while she was passed out because he did not want to miss the opportunity to conceive a child. Several weeks later, Rosemary discovers that she is pregnant. Over the next several months, she becomes increasingly suspicious of her neighbors' activities. She observes them participating in cult-like rituals and begins to wonder if the herbal remedies they have given her for her pregnancy symptoms are even safe. It's not until her baby is born and taken from her under equally suspicious circumstances that Rosemary learns the shocking truth.moreless
