Ep. 81 — ROSEMARY'S BABY (1968)
On this week's show, our Psychotronic Summer series takes us all the way back to 1968 as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of one of the most influential horror film's of all time, Roman Polanski's ROSEMARY'S BABY!
We discuss its origins as a best selling novel by Ira Levin, its development as a film and how it almost became a William Castle cheesefest instead of the prestigious film that it would become. We'll also take a look at its social themes and just how relevant many of them remain.
And naturally, we also discuss its potential entry into the Psychotronic Hall of Fame, to forever be considered one of the greatest genre films of all time, a decision we leave up to our listeners.
Come back next week and every wek this summer as we continue our Psychotronic Summer series, celebrating the best psychotronic films of summers past!
