Day 25 of #31AuthorsofHalloween – Ira Levin

Raise your hand if you loved Rosemary’s Baby!!! *Raising my hand*.

The book and the movie was a living nightmare of all expecting mothers . . . Well, pretty much, only if you have seen the movie, read the book and have weird neighbors.

When you start reading it (or watching it), you wonder if Rosemary is insane from the isolation she has put on herself, or if there is something really wrong. It is something you have to see for yourself to understand.

Basically, you have a young couple who moves into an apartment building in New York City, and she meets her neighbors Roman and Minnie. Rosemary becomes pregnant, isolates herself, and the neighbors have an odd obsession of this baby, and start taking care of Rosemary in a weird/awkward way.

Long story short, her husband makes a deal with the neighbors to give them a baby to succeed in his career. Almost like selling his soul. The neighbors are Satanists, and bring the baby earthbound, who would be Satan.

I know, it is all twisted, and the more I think about it, maybe this was the idea that happened in that episode of Charmed when Phoebe is pregnant with Cole’s baby, and find out that the baby was conceived of evil, and the real mother was the Seer, who could not handle the pregnancy, and ultimately killing the Seer and the baby.

Maybe I am thinking way too much into that one lol. Anyways, I hope that if you get the chance to read Rosemary’s Baby, you will enjoy it, and see the universe in a different set of eyes.
