‘Rosemary’s Baby’ remake still has creep-out power
Blu-ray $19.99 / DVD $19.98 (Lionsgate)
Almost half a century after director Roman Polanski put actress Mia Farrow through a devilish, Oscar-winning pregnancy predicament, HBO took another crack at the tale, turning it into a miniseries with Zoe Saldana and giving the story an international spin. But, based on Ira Levin’s best-selling suspenseful, psycho-thriller novel, it still has the power to creep you out big-time, here watching a young married couple escape their troubles in New York and moving to France, where they’re presented with an offer too good to turn down in a place with a very troubled past—and ending up paying a terrible, otherworldly price.
