1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die- "Rosemary's Baby" (1968)

I was extremely curious to see this film because of all the hype around it. Filmmakers have tried to recreate Roman Polanski's vision with an original twist, but have failed. Many critics argue that it is one of the best horror films ever made and I believe they are right.

The story centers around a young married couple Rosemary Woodhouse ( Mia Farrow) and Guy (John Cassavetes) who are trying to enjoy their new apartment and privacy, when they are quickly interrupted by their annoying neighbors. The film keeps you wondering, guessing and biting your nails as Rosemary learns that her husband, neighbors and baby are part of hell itself.

The film taps into our fears about trust. Can we really trust our families, husbands, wives, neighbors and most importantly ourselves? That's a scary question and that's what makes this film so terrifying.
