OMG! So that’s what happened to Rosemary’s Baby!

Look What's Happened to Rosemary's Baby

When it comes to Roman Polanski’s 1968 horror classic Rosemary’s Baby in which Mia Farrow unwittingly spawns Satan’s son, Adrian, who can forget her terryfying words as she gazes at her newborn? ‘What have you done to him? What have you done to his eyes, you maniacs!’

But have you ever wondered what became of Rosemary after she joined the Devil’s nursery? Well, the 1976 sequel, Look What’s Happened to Rosemary’s Baby provides those answers, albeit in a cheap US TV movie of the week kind of way.

Stephen McHattie plays a grown-up Adrian who, separated from his mother (Patty Duke, who actually tried out for the original film), takes to the road in a Triumph TR7 in a bid to outrun the occult forces desperate for him to embrace the dark side.

This TV-movie may lack the slow-burning suspense that makes Polanski’s original such a bona fide classic, but the sequel does boast a great cast of character actors, including Ruth Gordon, who reprises her role as the meddlesome Minnie Castevet; Ray Milland taking on the role of hubby Roman, and George Maharis as Adrian’s soul-selling dad Guy Woodhouse. Gilligan’s Island‘s Tina Louise and Knots Landing star Donna Mills cameo, which is a bonus, as is the great theme tune. This was one film I’ve been trying to track down for years and now its screening on The Horror Channel in the UK and also available to stream on YouTube (see below).
