'This Is No Dream: Making Rosemary's Baby' is a Staff Pick for Halloween 2018

When Roman Polanski's Rosemary's Baby premiered in 1968, it instantly set new standards for horror. It also became the immediate target of extravagant protest and criticism. One reviewer wrote, "this contemporary horror story about devil worship would qualify for a condemned rating [because of] the perverted use which the film makes of fundamental Christian beliefs, especially in the events surrounding the birth of Christ, and its mockery of religious persons and practices." Another piece of hate mail sent to the producer, William Castle, read, "Rosemary's Baby is filth and YOU will die as a result. Lover of Satan, Purveyor of Evil, you have sold your soul. Die. Die. Die… Bastard! Believer in Witchcraft. Worshipper at the Shrine of Satanism. My prediction is you will slowly rot during a long and painful illness which you have brought upon yourself."
