Editorial Reviews

Based on the 1967 best-selling suspense novel by Ira Levin, this new adaptation of "Rosemary's Baby" centers on a young married couple who escape New York and move to Paris with hopes of leaving their sad past behind. After a series of unfortunate events, Rosemary and Guy Woodhouse are presented with an offer they can't refuse -- an apartment with the most prestigious address in the city. Problem is, it comes with a haunted past and an immeasurable price.

With all due respect to reviewer John Bowen, one does not need to be a person who "hates all remakes" to find this one sadly lacking. Yes, the production values are high and the acting is good. But it is now an entirely different, and far less effective, movie.

For starters, to pander to today's audiences' bloodlust, a lot of graphic gore has been added, something that was completely absent in the magnificent original. For instance, when Rosemary is told that her apartment building once housed the notorious "Trench Sisters," who allegedly indulged in cannibalism, instead of learning about it through a casual reference in conversation, as in the original, here we have to be subjected to a flashback sequence showing the sisters kill and graphically dismember a man, blood squirting in their faces, a hatchet hacking off his arm, etc. And where Rosemary's friend Hutch, who tries to warn her, discreetly dies off camera in a coma in the original (and teasingly leaves us wondering what exactly happened), here he (changed now to an investigative police officer) has convulsions in his car with blood running out of his nose before being squashed like a bug by a large truck that smears him all over the pavement like a giant packet of ketchup. What was gained by this?

More detrimental is the fact that this remake gives away too much, way too soon. What made the original such an effective chiller was the fact that so much was left ambiguous up until the end. The viewer of that version has to piece together the various bits of evidence at the same time Rosemary does, so that we share in her gradual discovery and growing horror.

Roman Polanski's 1968 version of "Rosemary's Baby" is a true classic by any definition and a horror film that still holds up for modern viewers. It placed #9 on the American Film Institute's Most Thrilling American Films roster, garnered Polanski an Oscar nod for Best Screenplay and even won Ruth Gordon a golden statuette for Best Supporting Actress. Remarkably vivid for its day, the tale is an escalating ride of paranoia, menace, and ultimate dread. The film, adapted from a novel by Ira Levin, is stamped by Polanski's indelible mark. So let's just get this out of the way, the TV two-parter of "Rosemary's Baby" doesn't try to emulate Polanski's film so much as it is another adaptation of Levin's source material. While it relocates the story to Paris, the new interpretation of "Rosemary's Baby" stays closer to the roots of the novel on which it was based. As a product for a different medium in a different time, I'm not concerned with comparing the two versions. The only comment I'll make is that the original film was fairly startling and explicit for a Hollywood film (with an A-list cast, no less) in 1968 while the story is not nearly as shocking almost 30 years later when we've seen countless films borrow heavily from the same type of plotting.

The miniseries opens with a grim sequence depicting a young woman plummeting to her death. Soon thereafter, we meet our young heroes (the appealing Patrick J. Adams and Zoe Saldana) as they acclimate to their new Paris digs. Having suffered a deep tragedy, the lovely pair are trying for a fresh start in the City of Lights. He's an aspiring writer joining the faculty of a Parisian college, she's a former ballerina content to spend her time in cooking classes.

ROSEMARY'S BABY - the original 1968 film version directed by Roman Polanski - was smart, stylish, sardonic, sensational and superb - all the things, indeed, that this needless remake is not. This allegedly "modern" retelling is, in fact, what it actually is: and that is a TV movie fatiguingly drawn out to accommodate its every-few-minutes commercial breaks - so, therefore, it is laden with all the myriad and predictable cliff-hanging moments indicative of those coming commercial breaks. Of course, there are no actual commercials during the film on this DVD - except for the irritating previews one must either watch or skip through to get to the main event - but the rapid succession of fade-to-blacks are the "fingerprints" of this production's primary commercial function. In short, it is dragged out and padded and instead of keeping viewers on the edge of their seat, it is equally likely to cause one to snuggle back in their seat - and possibly even doze off.

It isn't that this take on Ira Levin's classic is awfully bad - it just isn't terribly good. In listening to the director and star/producer Zoe "Rosemary" Saldana talk of their undertaking and the need to offer this day and age a newer perspective on Rosemary's character just made me laugh - for there is nothing in this vision and version of Rosemary that isn't in the character as first exquisitely embodied by Mia Farrow - and, in all honestly, there is a far amount less. Also postulated - especially by director Agnieszka Holland - is that in her version she tried to offer up not so much a horror tale, but a psychological one wherein viewers never quite know what is real or what is merely imagined by Rosemary in her eventually pregnant and possibly paranoidal state. But this is hogwash!
