Weak and misguided sequel to a classic movie
15 January 2014 | by Red-BarracudaSee all my reviews

It probably goes without saying but Rosemary's Baby was a film that did not need a sequel. It ends on a tense yet perfect note, to elaborate further just seems misguided. But this is the movies and this is the way things go. I am sure that the primer for this particular sequel was the massive success of The Omen which was released the same year as this one. It seems likely that some executives somewhere thought that a cash-in follow-up to Rosemary's baby would be just the ticket and while I think it was a bad idea overall to make such a film, there is nevertheless some potential for it being enjoyable if it's made with a bit of care and thought. That's the problem though because Look What's Happened to Rosemary's Baby is a movie that has not been made with any care or consideration whatsoever.

It is a TV movie. But this isn't any kind of excuse because I have seen several television films from the period and have found the standard to have been pretty good overall. The main problem is that it simply has a badly written screenplay. At the start Rosemary and son Adrian run away from the satanic cult. She re-locates somewhere in the Midwest but is soon removed from the scene by supernatural powers when she is taken away on a strange driver-less bus. Her son is then taken under the wing of a mysterious woman. We fast-forward in time and encounter the now adult Adrian who is now visited by the Satanists who want to see if they can unleash the evil within him.

To be honest, it's an awkwardly told story that has little focus. It's broken up into three named chapters and despite this sounding like a good idea; it's only interesting on paper and doesn't really add anything. Rosemary herself is taken out the film early on and we then focus on her son but he isn't really a very interesting character, especially when you consider he is meant to be the son of Satan. He mopes around a lot and doesn't in truth do much; while I failed to understand why the plot-line was designed to not take full advantage of him being the Devil's son instead of making him a reluctant victim who the cultists are quite prepared to kill. This film should have had him out there causing perturbation and despair! He occasionally lets his powers loose, although he doesn't seem aware of them and they don't amount to much more than glowing eyes and super-strength. He even kills a couple of kids when he is a boy, although this incident is dealt with like it's a minor incident of little importance! Also of note is a bizarre scene later on where the Satanists involve Adrian in some ceremony where he is whitened up like a mime artist. I couldn't work out the point of this scene but it was a little bit memorable at the very least.

The only cast member to return is Ruth Gordon as Minnie Castevet and she definitely adds a bit of class to proceedings. But every other character is replaced with a new actor. It's not really too surprising when you consider the TV budget though. It's overall a film that looks really bad when compared to the original movie. But, unfortunately, even as a standalone production this one is pretty bad as well.
