Certainly only luck can explain the fortuitous conjunction of a strong commercial property like Ira Levin's novel with a strong directorial personality like Roman Polanski without the novel being distorted or the director diluted. full review

Andrew Sarris, Village Voice

Even readers of the book who know how Baby comes out are in for a pleasant surprise: the very real acting ability of Mia Farrow. full review

TIME Magazine, TIME Magazine

One of the finest horror films ever made. full review

Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger

Having escaped the horrors of the Nazi Holocaust in Poland by the skin of his teeth, Mr. Polanski was well equipped psychologically to re-imagine what was, before Rosemary's Baby, a B-picture genre into an A-picture genre. full review

Andrew Sarris, New York Observer

Get your fix of Mia Farrow looking terrified in Roman Polanski's iconic 1968 thriller Rosemary's Baby. full review

Miranda Siegel, New York Magazine

Several exhilarating milestones are achieved in Rosemary's Baby, an excellent film version of Ira Levin's diabolical chiller novel. full review

Variety Staff, Variety

Superbly acted (especially by bone-thin Farrow and Ruth Gordon as the ultimate neighbor from hell), it's a satantango in the land of Is-this-real-or-am-I-crazy?, with a luridly literal ending that doesn't negate the previous, more interior terrors. full review

Ed Park, Village Voice

A very sophisticated, very effective piece of work spun from primal images, with an excellent cast. full review

Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader

It should establish Mia Farrow as an actress of stature and Roman Polanski as a name which will be remembered. full review

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Atlanta Journal-Constitution

It is a creepy film and a crawly film, and a film filled with things that go bump in the night. It is very good. full review

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

The movie -- although is it pleasant -- doesn't seem to work on any of its dark or powerful terms. full review

Renata Adler, New York Times

The devil may come in many forms, but few have been more entertaining. full review

Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News

Hunched, black-eyed, leering, John Cassavetes's Guy is a contaminated satanic canal in himself. full review

Jessica Winter, Village Voice
