‘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:

Watched the first part of Rosemary’s Baby last night with high hopes, but turned it off halfway through. 4 hours = too much.

First part of the Rosemary’s Baby miniseries was actually really good. I think Zoe Saldana gets a lot of undeserved criticism
