Episode 314 “Rosemary’s Baby”

Rosemary’s Baby (1968) is a landmark in the canon of horror film history, specifically the sub-genre of satanic/witchcraft films. It may very well be the perfect storm of horror movies, featuring a controversial subject, a talented (but soon-to-be) controversial director, and having been released in a very turbulent time (the summer of love, Viet Nam, the Manson murders, etc.) Join us as we discuss the film’s continuing popularity and speculate on the reasons.
