* CallBack: Plenty, the film really makes use of horrible little moments or elements that come back later, for instance:

to:

* CallBack: Plenty, On second viewing/reading, nearly every detail of the film really makes use film/book becomes this.
** In the novel, Rosemary and Guy spend evenings playing Scrabble. [[spoiler: At the story's climax, Rosemary uses the Scrabble board to decipher the anagram
of horrible little moments or elements that come back later, Roman's name.]]
** In their first real meeting, Minnie invites Guy and Rosemary to dinner. Rosemary tries to beg off, telling Minnie she shouldn't go to any trouble on their account, to which Minnie replies "if it was any trouble I wouldn't ask; I'm as selfish as the day is long." [[spoiler: This turns out to be nothing more than the truth, as Minnie's only inviting them over to size up Rosemary as a potential mother
for instance:Satan's child.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Hutch's missing glove.
** Saperstein advises Rosemary not to read pregnancy books. At first this seems like kindly advice, as he tells her that nervous first-time mothers often think every small aberration is a sign of something wrong. [[Spoiler: Later we find out that the doctor is also a part of the cult, and he's deliberately keeping Rosemary away from standard pregnancy manuals because he ''knows'' her pregnancy will be abnormal.]] He also encourages her to indulge her WackyCravings [[spoiler: because he knows that Satan's baby is going to want bloody meat and raw chicken hearts at three in the morning.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TamperingWithFoodAndDrink: Rosemary's neighbors give her chocolate mousse laced with a sedative. Rosemary [[DiscreetDrinkDisposal discreetly disposes of it]] when she notices that it has a chalky taste, but she still ate enough of it to be unable to resist when Satan impregnates her while's she's still sleeping.

* NightmareFace: In the final scene when Rosemary discovers her baby. While not disfigured, the look on Rosemary's face when she first sees her child, and her eyes go INCREDIBLY WIDE... You don't even have to see what the baby looks like, her horrified expression tells it all.

The film version received high praise for its close following of the novel, going so far as to replicate much of its dialogue word-for-word. The film's producer, Creator/WilliamCastle, once speculated that this was at least partly due to the fact that Polanski had never before done an adaptation and didn't know he was ''allowed'' to make changes. The Bramford, where all the action takes place, was deliberately modeled on the Dakota in Manhattan (where Music/JohnLennon lived and where he would eventually be murdered). Exterior shots of the Bramford in the film are of the Dakota, but, due to the exclusive privacy policies of the building, the interior shots were filmed on a soundstage.

* TheOner: The film's TitleSequence features a slow, continuous aerial pan across Midtown Manhattan and Central Park, then down along the top of the the Dakota (a.k.a. the Bradford) and on to the front of the building, as we see Rosemary and Guy reaching the entrance from the sidewalk far below.

A 1967 horror novel by Ira Levin, '''''Rosemary's Baby''''' became much better known as a 1968 [[TheFilmOfTheBook film adaptation]] by Creator/RomanPolanski, the second film in the director's so-called "Apartment Trilogy" (along with ''Film/{{Repulsion}}'' and ''Film/TheTenant'').

The film version received high praise for its close following of the novel, going so far as to take much of its dialogue directly from the book (this is rumored to be partially due to the fact that Polanski had never before done an adaptation and didn't know he was ''allowed'' to make changes).
