    Rosemary's Baby

    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I like how the ending is left up to you... I think there's a lot of meaning behind the camera pan over to the window in the last shot.... I personally believe that it hints at Rosemary's fate - she's going to do exactly what the last girl did and jump out of the window to destroy Satan's baby. It's either that, or she settles in and starts hanging out with Ruth Gordan and her weird friends, and I don't see that happening any time soon.

    ★★★★

    Yep, I like it. I'm one of the rare people who liked the David Zucker spin on the Scary Movie franchise. It has lots of jokes, some land and some don't - but there are lots of moments that I find are really funny. Many of them are small moments of randomness - such as a police woman's hat expanding progressively from shot to shot... or a woman in her child's bedroom getting startled at the end of her scene…
