If there’s one company you want in charge of the reissue of a classic film like Rosemary’s Baby, it’s Criterion. Their transfers are stunning and their attention to detail regarding supplemental features is rarely matched. So it’s great news for Polanksi and horror films alike that they’re bringing that film to DVD and Blu-ray on October 30th – just in time for Halloween.
In the film, “A young couple move into a new apartment, only to be surrounded by peculiar neighbors and occurrences. When the wife becomes mysteriously pregnant, paranoia over the safety of her unborn child begins controlling her life.”
Full box art (front and back) and special features are inside.
