Oh baby! Criterion set to release Rosemary's Baby this October!

This is the very definition of a Halloween treat: Criterion (I should not have to explain who they are) will release a brand new edition of Roman Polanski's immortal ROSEMARY'S BABY on Blu-ray and DVD. The tops in the business when it comes to restoring classic cinema is getting to work on one of the horror genre's all-time champs. And it comes out in October. How can you f*cking go wrong, here?

So let's get to the good stuff. Here's what can be expected on the special edition:

- 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
- PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by critic Ed Park and Levin’s afterword for the 2003 New American Library edition of his novel, in which he discusses its and the film’s origins

Can I get a "hell yeah!" How about a "what have you done to his eyes, you maniacs?!"

The plot: Mia Farrow stars as a young mother-to-be who grows increasingly suspicious that her overfriendly elderly neighbors, played by Sidney Blackmer and an Oscar-winning Ruth Gordon, and self-involved husband (John Cassavetes) are hatching a satanic plot against her and her baby.

ROSEMARY'S BABY will be birthed on OCTOBER 30th.
