Added DiffLines:

* LadyMacbeth: The few hints given about what the Castevets are doing seem to paint Minnie as the one goading Roman into putting their plot into action.

Added DiffLines:

* MundaneHorror: Basically the gist of the whole "apartment trilogy". A seemingly ordinary apartment complex with friendly neighbors, and the protagonist is increasingly disturbed, having strange medical symptoms and believing that her husband and neighbors are up to something. [[spoiler:She isn't wrong.]]

* FriendsRentControl: A struggling actor and his non-working wife are living in a pre-war apartment in an exclusive Upper West Side building that, even in the '60s, a hedge fund manager could barely afford in real life. Justified in that a) the book narrative specifies that money's not a problem because Guy's been in a lot of commercials and gets residuals; b) New York rent control prevents the landowner from raising rent above a certain percentage of what the previous tenant (an elderly woman who had been there for decades) was charged. The superintendent even comments on this, saying that they would charge a great deal more if they could.

* SupernatralProofFather: Subverted. Guy tries to convince her that nothing strange is going on with their neighbors next door and that all of the other disturbing things that happen to her during her pregnancy are in her mind. [[spoiler:However, he knows that they are really part of a devil-worshipping cult, and he's promised the baby to them]].

* ChristianityIsCatholic: Roman criticizes the Catholic Church, but not a word is said about any other one (although he does make a passing comment dismissing "all religions") .

** It's also vaguely implied that [[spoiler:the mother of Satan's child]] is required to be Catholic. The cryptic comments by JFK in Rosemary's fever dream about only Catholics being allowed on the yacht and being "bound by these prejudices", and Terry having an Italian surname could be hints for this.



* JustEatGilligan: Call home to Mom, have her buy you a train ticket. Since everyone around is being creepy and lying to you, and the honest ones are dying, just go back to Omaha. And since those special witch foods aren't available back home, that should solve the problem of the inconvenient pregnancy. [[JustifiedTrope Meanwhile,]] Rosemary doesn't do this because of her several personality traits, for which she was specifically chosen by the witches. She's the type of good Catholic girl who won't leave her husband, or have an abortion, no matter what. She's also the sort of person to remain in denial about a situation as long as she possibly can, so that she will continue to convince herself everything is just fine long past the point that another woman would go running for help. In fact, that was the mistake the witches made the first time: not being careful enough to select someone who would keep telling herself all the warning signs were just her imagination, and had to help her into suicide. ''Plus'' the fact that the creeps, husband included, are extremely controlling. It's likely they'd just find a way to prevent her leaving.

The book also spells out more clearly that she's estranged from her family because she married a non-Catholic.
