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. Listen, as Johnny Has the Keys sublets an apartment in the iconic Dakota building, where suicides and death are commonplace, and where that baby you hear crying down the hall may be something far more sinister than it sounds.
