Rosemary’s Baby is considered one of the most cursed films of all time. Actor Sidney Blackmer (who played coven leader Roman Castevet) once said on set, “No good will come of all this ‘Hail Satan’ business.” Was the movie actually cursed? Did thinking, writing, speaking, and filming scenes all about the devil invite a dark energy onto the set and into the lives of the people involved? From illness, tension among the crew, and divorce to “accidental” death and grisly murder, it sure seems like it. Join us on Straight-Up Enigmas as we explore the curse of Rosemary’s Baby.
