The last five minutes are worth the two hours of AGONY that it took to get to the good stuff. If it weren't such a good dramatic ending I would be pissed off about the ending being so abrupt. Does Rosemary take care of Adrian as his mother? The moral battle she must be going through right then at realizing who the father really was. It would make a beautiful story; the devil's child, surely evil and without hesitation for the sake of good must be destroyed, but at the same time... She is his mother. She held him within her, and is a part of her. He may be the devil spawn but he is still an innocent (at this point anyway from what we've seen, I don't think a baby even of Satan is capable of sin as a helpless infant). Would she try to influence upon him some good values? Or give in to the coven's desires to raise the anti-Christ?

Trying to find this on YouTube I came across what looked like a sequel. I'll have to look into it and see what happens next. For once I feel I am in need of a sequel because DAMN... You got me, movie... I see the hype.
I liked the way it ended. I think if they had gone into too much detail about what happens next it would've ended up cheesy or ruined everything that came before. For me, her being happy with the child after everything she went through was the big moment and nothing really mattered after that. I would've liked to see the baby as well but who knows, it mightve ended up looking silly and ruined the movie.

I know what you mean. First time I saw Baby, I didn't know the Roman Polanski treatment (I think I was 13ish). Wasn't expecting a 'drama'. But it's the classic "slow-burn horror". It's about the back-of-your-mind instinct that something's not right.

Here's a classic description, "Polanski is less interested in terror and shock than in creating a mood of paranoia and instability. He finds the eerie in the mundane...". It's rather an art film.

Yes, I think you're right. The rape scene, and to a lesser extent, the ending, were difficult scenes to do realistically, let alone achieving a seamless cinematic progression, and state-of-mind feel, but the film succeeds.

Absolutely true...another one that is pretty racy is MASK OF FU MANCHU...very violent, racist and quite sexy for the time.

THE MUMMY (1932). Although this is almost a remake of DRACULA in parts and the magnificent make up should have been used more than it was, this is a classic which has some very memorable parts which help the languid pace throughout. LOVE the close up on Boris's face after Edward Van Sloan tells him "If I could get my hands on You..."...what a poster that would make. And also cool how White Zombie used a sampler from this on LA SEXORCISTO. ****

Shadow of the Cat

I'm surprised this isn't your favorite Hammer film, Hammerfan!

Absolutely loved this. Beautiful love story between an old lady and her beloved pet and best friend. The deaths were so clever you'd almost swear some of them the cat was just being an innocent cat and the people just ended up dead by their own dumbass faults. The characters were terrible people that I was just delighted to watch die.

Damn I wish I had recorded it...

OK, I feel like a very bad Hammer fan now. I've never heard of this!

Uh oh. I hope I'm not mistaken then! Need to uphold your image!
It's constantly confirmed it's a Hammer film, but it never mentions Hammer in the credits. I'm not an avid Hammer film watcher but... is that normal?

You should watch it anyway, it's right up your alley! 8)

I appreciate the heads-up about it! I'll definitely check it out! I'll check my "Hammer Bible" when I get home.
