‘Rosemary’s Baby’ made its long-awaited TV debut on NBC on May 11. But did the TV reboot live up to the classic horror film?

Now that’s one way to end Mother’s Day! The two-part miniseries Rosemary’s Baby, which stars Zoe Saldana and Patrick J. Adams, premiered on May 11 and tried to cause as many nightmares as the 1968 original movie did. While many fans stayed loyal to the original, some were impressed with the remake! Read on to see what the viewers had to say about Rosemary’s Baby!

‘Rosemary’s Baby': Fans Not Impressed With TV Reboot

Based on the 1967 novel by Ira Levin, Rosemary’s Baby follows a young woman who encounters a Satanic cult that wants to get their hands on her baby, who happens to be the spawn of Satan.

Mia Farrow was the first leading lady to take on Rosemary in the terrifying 1968 film and many fans just felt as if the modern take wasn’t up to par with the original. Here’s what the fans tweeted about the 2014 version:

Rosemary’s Baby is my all time favorite movie. The Dakota still intrigues me to this day. Mia Farrow was superb as Rosemary. Ruth Gordon & her hubby were perfect. The whole movie keeps you tense and on edge. The original was much more scary than this one was. I think they did their best, but there is no comparison between the two. If you haven’t seen the original – it is a must see. Don’t miss it – then compare for yourself.

I was not a fan of the original nor Mia Farrow. In fact I walked out of the movie about 30 minutes in. I only watched the remake because I love Jason Isaacs, but the show was not all that exciting.
