Episode 47: The Curse of Rosemary’s Baby

Source: Paramount Pictures

In the late 1960s, a B-movie producer and an eccentric European director teamed up to create an instant horror movie classic. Rosemary’s Baby set the stage for all the devil-themed films that followed it, from The Exorcist to The Omen to The Exorcism of Emily Rose. It’s terrifying and eerie — but the spooky and elegant filmmaking is pretty masterful. But, filming the horror classic came hand in hand with catastrophe. Rosemary’s Baby is considered one of the most cursed films of all time. Actor Sidney Blackmer (who played coven leader Roman Castevet) once said on set “No good will come of all this ‘Hail Satan’ business.” Was the movie actually haunted? Did thinking, writing, speaking, and filming scenes all about the devil invite a dark energy onto the set and into the lives of the people involved? From illness, tension among the crew and divorce to “accidental” death and grisly murder, it sure seems like it.
