Rosemary’s Baby (1968)
Adapted from a novel by Ira Levin and directed by Roman Polanski, ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ is a psychological horror movie which can now be regarded as a cult classic of the horror genre. The centre of the story is a young couple – Guy and Rosemary Woodhouse (John Cassavetes and Mia Farrow). After the couple’s move to Bramford, a gothic complex of apartment buildings in New York, strange occurrences begin to take place, and their elderly neighbours’ friendliness becomes too suspicious. When Rosemary gets pregnant, suspicions about people around her start to escalate, and the final question becomes: what is the truth here, and what is just a figment of her imagination?

Directed by Roman Polanski and based on a hit play ‘The God of Carnage’ by Yasmina Reza, ‘Carnage’ is a drama-comedy about two couples who gather in an apartment to discuss and settle their sons’ playground brawl. Although the cast is great in this film, and the film has its funny moments, ‘Carnage’ still suffers from some major flaws, and one of them is the inability to capture the precise humour and wit of the theatrical play.
