How 'Rosemary's Baby' Gave Birth to Modern Horror

It's Horror Month on the In Reel Deep Podcast, and our first foray into frightening features is the 1968 psychological horror classic Rosemary's Baby. Though the scares are minimal compared to modern horror, and there's not a drop of blood or gore to be found, you can see how Roman Polanski's film inspired future staples like The Exorcist and The Omen.

We praise Mia Farrow's remarkable performance, the clear infusion of comedy amidst all the dread, and what it means to craft a slow-burn horror film like this, all on the first of three spooky October podcasts.
