Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Ira Levin's bestseller about Antichrist cultism in Manhattan is impeccably and faithfully brought to the screen by director Roman Polanski. Mia Farrow is perfectly cast as the pregnant housewife who suspects strange things are going on in her upmarket new apartment building, while Ruth Gordon (Harold and Maude) won a deserved Oscar for her eccentric portrayal as the busybody neighbour from hell. Meanwhile, Polanski winds up the paranoia with plenty of spooky atmospherics and morbid humour.
