The movie "Rosemary’s Baby", written for the screen and directed by Roman Polanski, from the novel by Ira Levin. John Cassavetes and Mia Farrow play a young couple who move into a new apartment, where they discover their neighbors are peculiarly friendly.  Once Mia’s character becomes pregnant, she becomes paranoid over the safety of her unborn child. In true Polanski fashion, "Rosemary’s Baby" shows that even our loved ones could be working against us because human selfishness knows no boundaries.

Film Director Roman Polanski suffered the art inspiring real-life tragedy as his wife Sharon Tate was stabbed to death by the Manson Family while she was pregnant. The film’s composer died of a brain clot, similar to a character in the film’s predicament, just as soon as the film was done.
