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.

Special features include:

New high-definition digital restoration, approved by director Roman Polanski, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition.

New interviews with Polanski, actor Mia Farrow, and producer Robert Evans

Komeda, Komeda, a feature-length documentary on the life and work of jazz musician and composer Krzysztof Komeda, who wrote the score for Rosemary’s Baby.

1997 radio interview with author Ira Levin from Leonard Lopate’s WNYC program New York and Company on the 1967 novel, the sequel, and the film.

    Not bad at all :-) though for me the ultimate halloween present would be if they finally released Suspiria on blu-ray the way it was meant to be seen…
