"Rosemary's Baby"

One of the best psychological horror films in history is Roman Polanski's chiller "Rosemary's Baby." Polanski doesn't go for cheap thrills but instead sends shivers down your spine with scenes of psychological terror. There is very little blood and gore in the film but there is a disturbing scene in which Mia Farrow's vulnerable character is raped by the devil himself. This is one of the best horror films that has a religious or occult theme. The other films would be "The Exorcist" and "The Omen." This particular film focuses on Mia Farrow's character giving birth to the Antichrist. The entire film is suspenseful, unsettling, and very well directed and acted. What are your thoughts on "Rosemary's Baby?"
