Roman Polanski’s “Rosemary’s Baby” and the Dark Side of Hollywood


The 1968 movie “Rosemary’s Baby” is one of Roman Polanski’s most chilling and acclaimed productions. The film describes the manipulation of a young woman by a high-society occult coven for ritualistic purposes. The movie’s unsettling quality does not rely on blood and gore but on its realistic premise, which forces the viewers to ponder on the likelihood of the existence of elite secret societies. Even more unsettling are the eerie real life events that surrounded the movie involving ritualistic killings and MK Ultra. We will look at the symbolic meaning of “Rosemary’s Baby” and the stranger-than-fiction events that followed its release.

Although articles on the Vigilant Citizen usually pertain to new releases, a look at the past is often necessary to better understand the present. The state of today’s pop culture is not a spontaneous trend that sprung out of nowhere. Rather, it is the result of years of occult influence on the entertainment industry and the gradual conditioning of the masses to certain messages and symbols. Although pop culture has always been tainted by the elite’s agenda to shape and mold young minds, it is during the 60s and the 70s that MK-Ultra stooges and dark secret societies became visible parts of the mix. The need to quell the anti-war and anti-establishment movements of the 60’s forced the elite to infiltrate and disrupt the culture. A series of destabilizing events occurred to shock idealistic minds and heroes became enemies. The “Peace and Love” of the 60s became Charles Manson and LSD in the 70s.

Roman Polanski’s Rosemary’s Baby and its story about the manipulation of a young woman by an elite witch coven to carry and give birth to the Anti-Christ captured the mindset of this era and became symbolic of the irreversible shift that happened in the late 60s. However, it is the real-life events surrounding the movie that truly defined this era: Less than a year after the release of Rosemary’s Baby, Roman Polanski’s pregnant wife was ritualistically murdered by members of the Charles Manson family. This horrific event brought a brutal end to the “good vibrations” of the 60s and is viewed by many historians as a pivotal moment in American history. We will look at the symbolic meaning of Rosemary’s Baby and analyze the strange events surrounding it, which involve occult secret societies, mind control, and ritualistic murders.

Rosemary’s Baby

Roman’s Polanski’s 1968 movie is a faithful adaption of Ira Levin’s best-selling novel that appeared only a year before. Although it contains no blood or gore, Rosemary’s Baby is considered to be one of the scariest movies of all time. Why? The creepy nature of the film is not in its special effects but in its realistic premise. The story takes place in a real apartment building (the Dakota) that has a real reputation of attracting eccentric elements of New York’s high society. The evil coven is not composed of stereotypical, pointy-nose witches but of friendly neighbors, prestigious doctors, and distinguished individuals. They are elegant, rational and intelligent and are connected to important people. The realism of the movie forces the viewers to ponder on the existence of such groups, to a point that some feared that the movie, after its release would cause an all-out witch hunt. Rosemary’s manipulation is also extremely realistic, causing the viewers to think: “It could happen to me”.

The Setting

The movie starts with a pan-and-glide shot of the New York skyline, showing rooftops of buildings, finally settling on the prestigious Dakota Building  (renamed “The Bramford” in the movie).

The Dakota Building (dubbed the Bramford in Rosemary’s Baby)

The Dakota, and other buildings of the Upper West Side are known to be home of New York’s aristocracy (the “old money”). The Dakota has also attracted celebrities such as actors, singers, and writers. It is the “place to be” for New York’s elite.

In the movie, the Bramford is rumored to have been the site of numerous strange events involving black magic and ritual killings. Adrian Marcato, a rich man practicing witchcraft was almost killed in the lobby of the building. Ten years later, John Lennon, who lived in the Dakota, was murdered in front of this same building. During the introduction of the movie, the Bramford is just one of New York city’s many rooftops, concealing within its austere walls occult rituals the average person would never suspect.

The Young Couple

John and Rosemary Woodhouse visiting the Bramford

Rosemary and Guy Woodhouse (played by Mia Farrow and John Cassavetes) are a young couple who are looking to rent an apartment at the Bramford. Guy is a struggling actor who is not able to obtain recognition or important roles and has to resort to appearing in degrading TV commercials to generate some income. Rosemary is a frail and shy country girl who comes from a strict Catholic background. The name Rosemary has historically been associated with the Virgin Mary, who is said to have spread her cloak over a white-blossomed rosemary bush when she was resting, turning it blue. In the movie, the kind and trusting Rosemary will become a sort of “Black Virgin Mary”, bearing within her womb the child of Satan.

The Castevets

Once settled in their apartment, the Woodhouses meet their neighbors the Castevets, a friendly but nosy elderly couple who invite them for dinner. During this important evening, Roman Castevet compliments Guy on his acting, claiming he has an “interesting inner-quality” and “that is should take him a long way” … provided he gets those initial breaks (we later learn that those breaks come easier when one is part of their cult). Roman claims his father was a theatrical director and that he worked with all of biggest stars of the time (his father is actually Adrian Marcato, the witch who almost got killed in the building’s lobby).

In the kitchen, Minnie asks Rosemary several questions concerning the number of children in her family. She is obviously very interested in the “child-bearing” qualities of Rosemary.

In the living room, Roman is privately discussing with Guy.

Roman and Guy’s important discussion

Guy learns about Roman’s witch coven and occult rituals. He is also told that his career will succeed if he were to join them. The price of entry is however steep: He must allow his wife to be drugged and impregnated by Satan during an occult ritual.

Under Their Control

Although he did not like the elderly couple at first, Guy joins the coven and becomes good friends with Roman. Rosemary, who has no idea of these dealings, becomes weary of the couple and their strange behavior. During a pop-in visit, Minnie gives Rosemary a pendant containing tannis root (a fictitious plant), claiming it to be a good luck charm.

The spherical pendant was previously worn by a young woman who was living with the Castevets. The elderly couple found her living on the streets (mind-control handlers prey on such lost individuals). The woman killed herself by jumping out of a window, probably after learning about the Castevets occult plans for her. The pendant becomes symbolic of the coven’s mind control.

The same night, Guy obtains the leading role of a play because the original actor suddenly became blind. This strange event convinces Guy of the coven’s power, quelling all his doubts regarding its ability to help his acting career. Rosemary soon notices a drastic change in Guy’s attitude: Her husband is “suddenly very hot”, landing big roles here and there. He is also becoming “self-centered,” “vain,” “pre-occupied,” and “self-absorbed”. Funny how this describes the changes seen in celebrities who “sell their soul” for fame.

The Ritual

One night, Guy brings flowers to Rosemary and abruptly proposes, “Let’s have a baby, all right?”. He circles the best days on the calendar to start having sex – October 4th or 5th, 1965. (The coven had determined that these were the prime days for copulation to obtain a numerologically-correct birth). While the couple has a romantic dinner as a prelude to lovemaking, Minnie knocks at their door to drop off a dessert she made. Rosemary finds that the chocolate mousse has a “chalky taste” but Guy insists that she eats it. Her mousse contained drugs and Rosemary becomes dizzy.

During her trance-like state, Rosemary has incoherent hallucinations involving a JFK look-a-like (the only Catholic US President, who died six years before) images of the Sistine Chapel and the Pope (who is wearing Rosemary’s spherical pendant, a symbol of occult control). She is then seen naked on her bed, surrounded by her husband, the Castevets and the entire witch coven, who are chanting ritualistic hymns while an occult ritual is practiced on her.

Markings on Rosemary’s chest, on par with “real” Satanic rituals.

In her dream-like state, Guy begins making love to her, but his appearance changes into a grotesque beast-like figure resembling the Devil, with yellowish eyes and clawed, scaly hands. He strokes the length of her body with his hairy claw. While being ‘raped’ Rosemary realizes:

“This is no dream, this is really happening!”

There have been persistent rumors claiming that Anton LaVey, the founder of the Church of Satan, played the uncredited role of Satan during the impregnation scene, and also served as a technical advisor for the film. There is no proof of LaVey’s involvement in the movie but he was nonetheless linked to the movie’s aura in another way: Susan Atkins, the member of the Manson family who later murdered Polanski’s pregnant wife Sharon Tate, was an ex-follower of Anton LaVey.

Soon after, Rosemary learns that she is pregnant.

The Pregnancy

Right after learning about Rosemary’s pregnancy, Guy knocks on the door of the Castevets to inform them of the “good news”. Minnie immediately recommends that Rosemary sees “the finest obstetricians of the country”, Abe Sapirstein. He is the elite’s doctor as he “delivers all high society babies”.


The doctor orders Rosemary to avoid all pregnancy books and all friendly advice because “no two pregnancies” are alike. In reality, he knows that this unholy pregnancy will be extremely painful. He also requires Rosemary to consume daily drinks made by her neighbor Minnie Castevet. Rosemary becomes therefore totally dependent on members of the coven for all issues regarding her pregnancy. They keep her sheltered from the outside world, monitored and sedated through numerous ways:

Rosemary’s pregnancy is extremely difficult. She loses weight and she keeps feeling sharp pains in her stomach. Dr. Sapirstein dismisses her concerns, telling her that the pain would go away. Rosemary becomes weary of her neighbors, who are a little too “interested” in her pregnancy. She then obtains a book from a concerned friend (who mysteriously dies afterward): All of Them Witches.

The book describes the Castevet’s international secret society, which is known to practice blood rituals. Rosemary then buys more books on witchcraft. She is seen reading a passage which might describe the reason why Guy had been obtaining important roles.

“Many people during that time died supposedly natural deaths. Since then it has been determined that the United Mental Force of the whole coven could blind, deafen, paralyze, and ultimately kill the chosen victim. This use of a United Mental Force is sometimes called a coven.”

Rosemary attempts to escape the coven’s control and seeks help but she is tracked down and brought back home. She is drugged by Dr. Sapirstein and, soon after, she goes into labor.

The Baby

When Rosemary wakes up, she is told that her baby was dead (it was taken by the coven). Guy tries to comfort his wife by telling her that big movie production companies like Paramount and Universal were interested in hiring him. He was also promised a big house Beverly Hills – all rewards for Guy’s initiation into the coven and Rosemary’s sacrifice.

Determined to find her baby, Rosemary sneaks into the Castevets’ apartment and stumbles into a Satanic “Adoration of the Magi” scene, with people from all over the world bringing gifts to the baby.

When Rosemary sees the baby’s reptilian eyes, she starts screaming. Roman Castevet tells her:

“Satan is his father, not Guy. He came up from hell and begat a son of mortal woman. Satan is his father and his name is Adrian. He shall overthrow the mighty and lay waste their temples. He shall redeem the despised and wreak vengeance in the name of the burned and the tortured. Hail, Adrian! Hail, Satan! God is dead! Satan lives! The year is One, the year is One! God is dead”

The birth of Rosemary’s baby is the new “Year One.” It is also accurate by Church of Satan standards to call 1966 Year One. This is a self-conscious, parallel reference to the year of Jesus Christ’s birth, also in Year One, A.D. Another unstated fact: The baby is born in June 1966, which is numerically 6/66.

Roman then asks Rosemary to be a “mother to her child” and to take care of the baby.

Unable to resist her instinctual, almost animalistic need to respond to her baby’s cries, Rosemary starts rocking the cradle.  The movie ends with a rather unsettling scene: The coven gathers around Rosemary while she takes care of the monstrous baby. She accepts the reality of the situation and faintly smiles.

The camera moves to the curtained window and then to the outside of the apartment – ending the film with the same, slow pan across the urban rooftops that opened the film … all of these events happened inside one of New York’s many rooftops and no one will ever suspect a thing.

Aftermath of the Movie

While some will consider Rosemary’s Baby to be nothing more than a scary movie playing on the sensibilities of devout Christians and young mothers, others see it as Roman Polanski’s courageous exposition of high society’s occult mind state. Many however see the movie as an occult manifesto, heralding a new era.  Rosemary’s Baby is Aleister Crowley’s “Child of the new Aeon”, or Horus the son of Isis – the bringer of a new era in world history. Whether it was intentional or not, Rosemary’s Baby did appear at the brink of a new era and became part of an important social change.

“The movie appeared at a moment of optimum spiritual chaos in American life. Rosemary’s Baby remains an iconic memory trace of a time when anything seemed possible, including the birth of the Anti-Christ”.
– Gary Indiana, “Bedeviled”, Village Voice

Rosemary is representative of the traditional and naive American society of the 50s and 60s – filled with idealism and hope. But that hope was sold, drugged and manipulated by a hidden cult (formed by prestigious and respectable members of society) to forcefully give birth to a new era. Shocking events left indelible marks on the public mind, including the mysterious deaths of JFK, Marilyn Monroe, and Martin Luther King; horrific ritual murders perpetrated by MK-Ultra patsies like Charles Manson and Son of Sam caused fear and horror. These events slapped America out of its ideals and forced it to stare at an undefinable, yet tangible force influencing society. Conspiracies and cover-ups made the news and the masses gradually discovered the existence of a shadow government. Disillusionment and cynicism ensued, causing American society to accept or to ignore the true nature of its rulers. Society became the equivalent of Rosemary who has learned of the evil nature of her baby but nonetheless accepted the responsibility of mothering it. Today’s debased pop-culture is simply the evolution of this system.

Even if one is to overlook the symbolic meaning of the movie itself, the synchronistic occurrences surrounding its production are simply astonishing. To look at the events surrounding Rosemary’s Baby is to stare right at the dark side of Hollywood. Here are some of the events:

Murder of Sharon Tate

Before settling on Mia Farrow, Roman Polanski originally envisioned his wife, Sharon Tate, as playing the role of Rosemary. She was not cast in the role but did make an uncredited appearance in the movie, during a party scene. Fourteen months after the release of the movie, Tate (who was 8 months pregnant) was ritualistically killed by members of the Manson family. She was stabbed 16 times and her killers wrote the word “pig” in her blood on the wall of her house.

Charles Manson is described by Fritz Springmeier as “both a Monarch slave and a handler”. According to Springmeier, his programmers knew ahead of time where he would strike next. He was basically used by the elite to carry out ritualistic murders.

“(…) the murders attributed to the Son of Sam, the Manson Family, and numerous other interconnected killings (including possibly the Zodiac murders) were not what they appeared to be.  While these killings appeared to be the random work of serial/mass murderers, they actually were contract hits carried out for specific purposes by an interlocking network of Satanic cults … In other words, these were professional hits orchestrated and disguised to look like the work of yet another ‘lone nut’ serial killer.”
– David McGowan, “There’s Something About Henry”

“The Manson murders sounded the death knell for hippies and all they symbolically represented,” Bugliosi told the Observer last week. “They closed an era. The 60s, the decade of love, ended on that night, on 9 August 1969”.
-The Guardian, “Charles Manson follower ends her silence 40 years after night of slaughter”

According to numerous observers, Manson’s killings were programmed using Beatles songs (Manson himself claimed that the song Helter Skelter contained hidden messages intended for his family).

“Charles Manson was programmed with Beatles’ music. (…) They regularly call in slaves and hypnotically make the lyrics to be cues for the slaves before the music comes out. For instance, the lyrics of “Ain’t that a Shame” will make certain alters angry. For another slave the lyrics “Everything is relative, in its own way” reminds the person of the cult family & obedience.”
– Fritz Springmeier, The Illuminati Formula to Create an Undetectable Mind Control Slave

“The Manson killings were performed according to ancient ritual with hoodwinks and “cords of initiation” around the necks of the sacrifices. A line from a John Lennon Beatles’ song was painted on the death house, “Helter Skelter” which was located appropriately on Cielo (Spanish for “sky”) Drive (Sharon Tate and Roman Polanski’s house).

What we are witnessing in the wake of the public enactment of these alchemical psychodramas, whose spiritual consequences for mankind are far more momentous than most have thus far guessed, is a process of global occult initiation”.
– Michael, A. Hoffman, Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare

Speaking of which, the death of John Lennon is another strange piece of the puzzle.  The murder occurred as John was walking into the Dakota, the building where Rosemary’s Baby was filmed, and where he was living at the time. Mark David Chapman, the “lone nut” who killed Lennon is heavily suspected to be a Monarch mind-control slave.

Chapman also had ties with high-profile handlers and the strange circle of occult celebrities.

“Lennon’s assassin, Mark David Chapman, met LaVey’s pal Kenneth Anger, an American disciple of Aleister Crowley, in Honolulu in the late 1970’s. In 1967 Anger had directed a film called Lucifer Rising, starring Manson follower Bobby Beausoleil. Another follower and Tate-killer, Susan Atkins, had appeared with LaVey in performances at a Los Angeles area strip club.”
– Ibid.

Why was Sharon Tate “chosen”? She was not Hollywood’s biggest star and she only enjoyed limited commercial success. Was it the inevitable outcome reserved to stars who go too far into the occult side of stardom? Three years before her death, Tate played the role of a witch in the movie Eye of the Devil. The movie’s conclusion: A blood sacrifice was required to “make things right again”.

Did Roman Polanski sacrifice his wife (the same way Guy sacrificed Rosemary) to obtain the favors of Hollywood? Soon after the death, he allowed himself to be photographed by Life Magazine in the living room where Tate had died. Her dried blood was still clearly visible on the floor in front of him. The photo shoot caused him to be heavily criticized.

Other events did not help his credibility. Seven years after Tate’s murder, Polanski was arrested and charged with a number of offenses against 13-year-old Samantha Geimer, including rape by use of drugs, perversion, sodomy, lewd and lascivious act upon a child under 14, and furnishing a controlled substance to a minor. According to Geimer’s testimony to the grand jury, Polanski had asked Geimer’s mother (a television actress and model) if he could photograph the girl as part of his work for the French edition of Vogue (we have already seen the rather sick inclinations of that magazine in the article entitled Disturbing Sex Kitten French Vogue Photoshoot Featuring Children). According to author Michael A. Hoffman, Polanski produced snuff films involving minors for sale on the private market, but these allegations remain unproven. Despite all of these accusations, Polanski remains a free man.

Are these events strange coincidences or all part of a big scheme? Is it somewhere in between? Whatever the case may be, they are symptomatic of a hidden force influencing American pop culture.

In Conclusion

Rosemary’s Baby can be seen as nothing more than a well-crafted movie that plays on the timeless and archetypal fear of “the Devil”. However, when one looks at the movie’s precise timing in American history and the incredible series of events that followed its release, the movie becomes a pivotal work symbolizing an important cultural shift in American life. The same way Rosemary discovers the workings of an international witch coven, American society “discovers” a darker side to its entertainment business and internal politics. Mind control slaves are unleashed in the public, shocking mega-rituals occur and pop culture becomes a celebration of depravity.

This era trail-blazed the way to today’s Illuminati agenda in popular culture. With the silent consent of the public’s indifference, today’s cultural industry is still hard at work, molding young minds for a “new eon”. The same mind control that was used to kill Sharon Tate and John Lennon has now become a fun way to spice up a music video. The controversies of the past are still echoed today. Should we be surprised to see today’s latest Illuminati star Nicki Minaj “channeling” an alter persona called … Roman Zolanski?

That being said, it would be overly simplistic to blame “Satan” for all that happened. In fact, the puppeteers would love to see a scared and confused population blaming everything on a non-human scapegoat, releasing actual men and women from the accountability of their actions. Even LaVey’s Church of Satan is a Hollywood-style, theatrical comedy compared to the real actors on the world stage. Secret cabals, evolving at the higher echelons of society, are the true puppeteers here and they avoid media attention. By distorting and corrupting ancient esoteric teachings to fit their needs, the rulers have given themselves a loose moral code to justify their actions.  They have usurped “true science”, which was inspired by the laws of nature, to create a toxic by-product serving power and greed. The masses, deemed “profane” and unworthy of the Truth, are bewildered spectators at a sick puppet show, not even realizing they are watching puppets. For this reason, it is important to lift the curtain and see what is happening behind the scenes. Once we truly see the sick puppeteers pulling the strings, we will, hopefully, snap out of our hypnotic state and walk out of the show.

Don´t you think that an actor with no talent renting that apartment is very unusual? Seems to me that Guy already knew what was about to happen before going there with his wife.

Vigilant, thank you. So much. I really was struck by this quote: "Disillusionment and cynicism ensued, causing American society to accept or to ignore the true nature of its rulers. Society became the equivalent of Rosemary who has learned of the evil nature of her baby, but nonetheless accepted the responsibility of mothering it. Today’s debased pop-culture is simply the evolution of this system." As L.A. Marzulli says, many current events are consequences of supernatural events of the past. These satanic offerings you assiduously expose time after time have truly released much of what we suffer as a nation. I do not assent! I do not agree! I resist and defy the evil of our age. Dear God, Please forgive us as a nation for turning a blind eye to the trickles of evil that have turned into a global flood. Please forgive us for being fat, stupid, and addicted… Read more »

Great article – As far as the connection between the film and John Lennon's murder – did you happen to notice the bloody Beetle (car) in front of the Dakota near the beginning of the film, right after the suicide scene ?? I did – WEIRD !!!

This is very well written i agree with everything said
i wanted to point out that along with the Sharon Tate murder the "family" drove to another house after that murder and one of the victims in that murder was named Rosemary!! I dont know how many people have noticed that as a piece tying things together but when i watched the documentary movie Manson i got goosebumps when they said that was the victims name who was killed right after Sharon Tate in a house the killers drove to!!!

I find it interesting that the lead actor's name in an occult witchcraft movie was John "Cassavetes" along side a character named Roman "Castevet". I'm too lazy to see what anagram I came come up with from John Cassavetes…

I’ve thought all this time that I was the only one who made that connection! 🙂 Not to mention that we have *Roman* Polanski directing the film and *Roman* Castevet as a main character. Hmmm, what a coincidence. . . .

Didn't John Cassavettes start a modeling agency too?

Mia Farrow herself is more than just the 'actress-who-got-hired' for this movie. As an earlier post in this series of comments pointed out, at age 21 Farrow married Frank Sinatra, 30 years her senior — whose connections to Mafia elements in Las Vegas were well-known — and that group in turn was connected to elements involved in the multi-level network which engineered the Kennedy assassination in 1963. Sinatra bought the rights to the film "The Manchurian Candidate," and prevented it from being seen by the public for many years. If Polanski was an insider, so was Sinatra. During the production of Rosemary's Baby, Farrow refused Sinatra's demand that she quit the film to work on his movie "The Detective"; subsequently he served her with divorce papers on the set during filming. They had been married for two years. It would seem that Sinatra had the contacts to know about the… Read more »

I don't know if it is already mentioned: Polanskis current wife Emmanuelle Seigner is born June 1966 (6-66). Creepy.

everything what is linked with Polanski and his movies creepy

Speaking of Manson and his "angels." Anyone ever make the connection to the show Charlie's Angels yet? Charlie was their controller and the "angels" were his monarch slaves and it certainly is connected to the story of Manson and his slaves.

Interesting how it is all connected in some way.

Ok, maybe Polanski puts a curse on his movies and thats why the bad dreams. Matter can be blessed or cursed. Many of the songs that come out are cursed before relased as is cocaine that comes in from Columbia. They do a black mass. As for religion, we do have truth in the world and infiltration by the illumanti into our religion was done to neutralize and give people the feelings that you decribe. If we had no truth the illumanati would be a waste of time. They are the opposite of truth. I do not believe in David Ickes take that the illumanti invented religion. I believe him to be a disinformation agent who shows some truth but then pulls people away from the truth which is not something but somebody. The father of lies is a liar and an ape who mimicks everything God has or does.… Read more »

Icke is definitely disinfo. Anyone who claims the Illuminati are shape shifting reptiles is clearly trying to distract everyone. Jehovah is alive and well and here to redeem the lost through His Son Jesus Christ. Hollywood is a sick vile place where all the “Christians” are actually Satanists and witches who are being used to glorify every satanic agenda on the market, including the end of the human life cycle. It’s sad to witness. I have compassion for all the people being deceived. My main focus is on Christ and how I can be better serve Him as my Savior through doing the will of My Heavenly Father.

What always creeps me out about "Rosemary's Baby" is the music, especially the famous lullaby , sweet quiet melody, but deeply unsettling.

Every time I hear this lullaby (sang by Mia Farrow?) I get goose bumps. The composer of the soundtrack (and other soundtracks for early Polanski's movies) Krzysztof Komeda died in 1969 in unclear circumstances. Allegedly it was a weird, unfortunate accident-he was pushed off an escarpment.

Maybe it was just a freak accident, but I find it weird that so many creepy things happened to people close to Polanski and this movie.

Apparently, he died, very young, of a brain hemorrhage… just like Rosemary’s friend in the movie, Hutch.

am i the only one who was disturbed by the pictures of Roman Polanski in the magazine?! you can still see where they wrote PIG, and the blood on the floor…its awful…why would anyone want to be photographed next to that, especially her husband! its sickening, and im a little disturbed by it.

Just … wow!

I've seen this movie a couple of times,

there definitely is a lot of symbolism in it, too bad you seemed to have missed nearly all of the more subtle ones.

Here's one you missed:

1) When guy puts the book about magic on the shelf, we can see for a second

several books:

The male sexuality, the female sexuality (by Alfred kinsey, sexuologist and known satanist) &

Yes i can (by sammy davis jr, known (laveyan) satanist.

This movie has nothing to do with mindcontrol, its about the ritualistic pregnancy of the 'scarlet woman' as outlined in the higher grades of crowley's O.T.O

Yooooo! This may be off topic with Rosemarys Baby, but it is relevant to the topic of Hollywood. I'm a 26 year-old latch-key 80's baby, so I was raised by the TV. My favorite ones were the Looney Tunes(Bugs, Daffy, Elmer, Sylvester). Well, I was watching HBO the other day and they showed this old Looney Tunes movie and the first act is titled: "Satan is Waiting". I thought that in itself was a weird statement to display in a movie for kids. So it goes on showing different looney tunes skits, then they get to the store of the 3 little pigs (3 little bops, is what the skit was called). We all know that story. Well when the pigs got to the third house, the narrator put emphasis on the fact that the brick house was built MAY 1, 1776. Now aint that the day the Bavarian Illuminati… Read more »


Phillips from mama's and papa's had an incestuous relationship with one of his daughter. These people are way too weird and normal folks don't want to believe in such craziness. They just don't want to know because they are aware there is nothing they can do. Feel sorry for the kids of the weirdos, the only victims. Honestly the symbols, the mk ultra they use do my head in. If you're a rational human being, you can't understand what's going on in their minds. If you're brought up in a normal, decent household with values you can't understand where these people come from.

What I find interesting is svali an ex-illuminati who allegedly escaped their threshold. I believe she's the real case and she knows what she's talking about. I'm bemused they haven't shut down this blog. Or they just harvest our IPs.


My favorite is intheKnow7'sBlog

All you need to know about project monarch. Gwyneth wears that red Kaballah thing on her wrist. Didn't know she was Polish. It's interesting to know that Sharon Tate was the daughter of military intellegence as was Phillips and David Crosbey and Jim Morrison and they were all into occullt around the same time. It's so weird and Oh, squeeky Fromm (Mansons slave) later tried to kill President Ford! WTF. And people can't put two and two together and think Maybe somethings going on! No if you believe in this you are labled a nut.

It's not a Jewish thing ( Unless you mean Kaballa) or Catholic or just Masonic. Secret societies make up the mystical body of satan or what the Bible calls Mystery Babylon. The church, which is people from all the denominations in the" Know" make up the mystical body of Christ. Thus the battle. I believe that good Jews are included in Gods body as well as people with God in their heart who don't have the entire truth yet. One must be careful though because all the church has been infiltrated to an extent and we have wolves in sheeps clothing. I will say many TV preachers are Masons and heritics and snake oil salesmen. The preach health and wealth and ask for your money all the time. Shame on them, they are the money changers in the temple that Jesus got angry at and called a bunch of vipers.
Very True! And yes there are good although most likely misled Jews out there….they are God's children & nation so we as Christians should show love and kindness towards them whether they believe in Jesus or not. There are the Jews for Jesus and Messianic Jew organizations now as well but who knows whats really behind the scenes of some of these groups. I have watched a lot of TBN over the last year and have grown uncomfortable with how much they pander people for money. They have some good shows and I particularly like the childrens Network Smile Of A Child in preference to my kid watching Spongebob or anything Illuminickelodean has to offer…at least he is learning about God & Jesus and when is old enough to understand I can teach him to be wary of wolves in sheeps clothing within Christianity. I have seen a lot of… Read more »
TBN is illumanati. Started about the same time as Jim and Tammy Baker who were programmed monarch slaves. They used Disney as their model for Christian theme park. Anyhow they were also friends of the TBN's Crouches. Benny Hinn is a wolf in sheeps clothing. Once I heard him say that everyone would be blessed along with him if they sent in 2000 dollars. He said anything less would not be a leap of faith. Does that sound like God or a snake oil salesman? I'm not saying all of the guests on that network are evil but the network is run by the illumanati. Just like fox, cbs, ect. Do you know Pat Robertson is illumanati? He is a high level mason and Time magazine has him on the cover making masonic signs. It can be googled. His father ws a senator and high level illumanist.

Shouldn’t you be blaming Ira Levin? Polanski went out of his way to make the movie as faithful as possible to Levin’s book, down to asking him what shirt Guy saw in the New Yorker … The movie as it was would never have existed if the book didn’t exist first.

It is not an accident that they cut off her feminine hair to give her a very boyish hair cut at the transition point.

Androgyny is central to the entire wretched occult melange.

Yup. Good point.

I was getting an oil change for my car today, and in the shop waiting room there was the current issue of Vogue magazine (same one with dead-eyed photo of Gaga one of these comments mentioned). It happens to include an article on the history of hair stylist Vidal Sassoon, who did the androgynous hair cut for this film, and there it is: a photo of him performing the very cut on Mia Farrow, surrounded by press people. According to the article, Sassoon was paid $5,000 to give Farrow this haircut for the film, and it was made into a big press event, and he was mentioned by name in a line in the film. This haircut had THAT much attention drawn to it at the time — which only means it had some very important background significance, like everything else in this mass alchemical working that posed as a… Read more »

Long hair on a woman also historically represents free female sexuality. Cutting Rosemary's hair could be symbolic that she is no longer in control of her own sexuality. Also, in the past when humans would be sacrificed, in some cultures their hair would be cut off. It was tied to the cutting of grain in the harvest, symbolically uniting them to the cycle of abundance in nature. And it used to be a mark of shame to cut off a woman's hair, particularly as an indicator that she had committed adultery. Rosemary did so, if against her will. I think those people would enjoy humiliating her for it, even though it was not her fault, maybe especially though.

Just read online that short hair was a mark of enslavement in the Germanic tribes. Free people wore their hair long.

Excellent post,Vigilant! It reminds of another movie of that time called Westworld staring Yul Brynner as the robotic cop,and Richard Benjamin and James Brolin as the tourists. The outline is about a amusement park with 3 worlds Roman,Medieval,and Westworld. Worlds symbolize 3 eras. Well the tourists went to Westworld. Westworld=America And America is the world's number 1# superpower and the shining example of Democracy(Remember,present time 1973). The movie starts out as like in the old west shoot-it-up see who can fire the fastest(But no real bullets). If you shoot the sheriff you get to be sheriff. Which Symbolizes when america was 1st found where We the People are the government,plus it also symbolizes our right to abolish the government in case it gets to corrupt. But Then,the robot sheriff circuits malfunctioning and the sheriff starts firing real bulletts and murdering Richard Benjamin's character. Then The Sheriff goes after James Brolin's… Read more »
Someone asked if Ann Arbor was a programming center and yes it is. I believe that is the place they programmed the unibommer. As for Madonna she went to Rochester Adams High with my brothers. I knew her and remember she was in the Glee club that my brothers were in. She always did a solo or dance or something. I believe she was from a generational satanic family. You can see photos of her naked with red shoes on line (Oz programming) when she was just 18-19 years old. Other people say it happened when she moved to NYC after leaving U of M. She was in some type of cult and did a snuff film ( ritual) which they showed when I was at MSU and she was just becoming popular. We just thought it was porno at the time. They end it suddenlly after a r**e scene… Read more »

Excellent Point!Let's not forget Bill Ayers(Weather Underground) and Bob Seger the rock star are from Ann Arbor

The LaBiancas who were murdered by Mansons group as well were drug dealers and into the occult. These people all new each other. Manson had been at parties with Phillips,polanski,beachboys ect. I heard Tate wanted out and the Tarot card reference was because of this. Just a theory. They say that tapes from the Polanski home were taken by police with many celebrities in sex rituals that looked like a scene from Eyes Wide Shut!

Phillips? from mamas & papas? He was sleeping with one of his daughter for 10 years. She got pregnant, she thought he might be the father and she had it aborted. He was into drugs and alcohol. He was giving drugs to his daughter. POLANSKI made another dark film with witches (Shakespeare) which they show in schools. Absolutely disgusting.

Polanski also did China town and in that movie the elite that run the town are in an incestuous relationship. Faye Dunaway reveals incest with her father. This is practised in Satanic illumanti famlies. It is part of the Trama to create DID in their children. Makenzie Phillips had sex with her father because thats what these groups do. Many suspect Miley and Billy Ray Cyrus as well as Jessica Simpson. At the very least they pimp them out like the Kardashians. Good little monarch slaves. On one episode of celebrity rehab (celebrity re-programming) they show mackenzie phillips freaking out because they have to kill her sick old dog. This is part of programming trama. They were retramatizing her to reprogram her. They kill their dogs. Toto in the Wizard of OZ. Google Oz programming and the occult. Oh yes, Jessica Sinmpsons dog went missing as did Paris Hiltons as… Read more »

It apparently took several months for Charlie & Family (great, close friends as well as dealers/pimps to the stars) to be chosen as the fall guy(s).

Manson has revealed that child p**n and snuff films were often filmed at the Tate house. Maybe you think Charlie can't be trusted. Perhaps that's why he made such an ideal scapegoat.

@VC rosemary is similar to princess diana.

The anti-war and free love movements of the 60s were started by these very same people, in order to introduce mass indoctrination into the culture, using cognative dissonance, and many of the ideas regularly talked about on this site. Go and look into all of the progentiors of these movements – their parents were military, many of them in the intelligence community.

Do not be fooled into the Hegelian mindset.

Sharon Tate's father was Army Intelligence as well. Thought that was interesting when I learned of it today.

Glad you're awake to this movement.

Military personnel are also deeply involved in the Hash House Harriers, which is a worldwide society that promotes the idea that sex is just another recreational activity. None of them will admit that it is a sex club though because if it was discovered that this was its sole purpose, they would lose their tax exempt status and have to pay tax on all the beer and sex toys that are sold at their weekend parties that are always protected by hired security. The HHH, or H3, is a perverted cult that encourages degradation, humiliation, and desensitization. Sex should involve love and respect, which is the exact opposite of their activities. More 'As above, so below' bs.

You sir are dead wrong about the hash house harriers. I have been "hashing" with them since 1987, and I do it on a weekly basis. I can tell you that all I do, and those who I hash with, is we have a few beers, go for a run and at the end we sing songs. I have easily done over 1000 hashes in my life and I have never seen the group promoting "the idea that sex is just another recreational activity."

The moto of the hash is "drinking clubs with a running problem."

Please feel free to offer any proof… factual proof please… ty and good day.

Stop by the Amsterdam hash and you'll find you're wrong.

I guess I hadn't read this one VC, but came to all the very similar conclusions, much in part due to David Van Gough's 'Bad Vibes' painting! If I had read this post earlier, wouldn't have messaged you such drivel. My apologies. *~Namaste~*

Sharon Tate was part of the witchcraft cult.She was expecting a baby and she didn't want him to make part of this sinister organization.You see, the thing is if someone is borned in the witchcraft cult, then he/she is baptized in the name of this demon-chanelling religion and the parent's opinion is not important.Also you cannot withdraw from this cult because you can get killed.If someone wants to leave it, then he/she must run as fast and as far as they can from it.If you ask for permission to leave the cult, you're as good as dead.So, Sharon wanted to leave with her baby.But the witchcraft members found out and sent an assassin's squad (if you prefer) after them.It's members were part of the hardcore organisation of the cult, called the Process.It's leader was Charles Manson.

Ritual is everything to these people.


Gweneth Paltro is Kaballa (sp). Her Dad was a director. She is a monarch slave and if you go to Esoteric kitten site they will show photos of all the monarch slaves in hollywood and how you can tell. Or you can just google certified monarch slaves. Learn the symbols, clothing ect. Many of them are cutters. When their programming breaks down they self destruct like Marie Osmonds son who jumped out a window or Anderson (Vanderbilt) Coopers brother who jumped out a window. Clockwork Orange has mind conrtol in it and would be a great topic. Even better is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It's about initiation into Satanism. Think about it.

You have a point there. Too many coincidences. Aaron Spelling was associated with them. What a surprise. I mean you can't have so much dosh and be innocent. If that's what they choose to do.

I have wondered about the Charlies angels connection you mentioned before. I wonder about Aaron Spelling. He did that show on witches called Charmed as well. I think You Tube has a series called nine degrees of Charlie Manson.

All these amazing comments sparked by this amazing article, suddenly brought up a memory I wanted to share, possibly significant, given all the things that are being exposed here about Polanski (whose real first name is "Raymond", by the way, not Roman, if that means anything). Back when it was in the theaters, about eight years ago now, I went to see the fake "jew" Polanski's fake pious holocaust movie "The Pianist". This was long before I knew anything about the kind of matters exposed in this website. I hadn't a clue. But this movie, which had no otherworldly content at all, gave me NIGHTMARES all night! After seeing it, the entire night I kept being jolted awake in a frightened panic at exactly five minutes after the hour, each hour: 12:05… 1:05… 2:05… etc. In my half-sleep, half-awake fugue states segments of the Chopin piano pieces that were featured… Read more »

Raymond in spanish is Reymundo. Rey = king; Mundo = world. King of the world (Latin = Rex Mundi).

Jesus said, “This voice was for your benefit, not mine. Now is the time for judgment on this world; now the prince of this world will be driven out. John 12:30-31

I have told you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe. I will not say much more to you, for the prince of this world is coming. He has no hold over me, but he comes so that the world may learn that I love the Father and do exactly what my Father has commanded me. John 14:29-31

…about righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer; and about judgment, because the prince of this world now stands condemned. John 16:10-12

"That being said, it would be overly simplistic to blame “Satan” for all that is happening in society. In fact, the puppeteers would love to see a scared and confused population blaming everything on a non-human scapegoat, releasing actual men and women from the accountability of their actions." VC, I have to disagree, at least from a Christian standpoint. The things on your website have validated even further to me that Satan is very, very desperate for human lives in these 'last days'. While Satan himself is not walking around on the earth doing all of this, he is influencing the minds of people, because people are allowing him to influence their minds. As long as that happens,, the work of Satan will be carried out in this world- the New World Order and everything Illuminati is the work of Satan. If Satan was taken out of the equation, there… Read more »

The only power that satan has over us is money. thats the only thing that i can see is really controlling us. We are bound by money.

That is true, he cannot complete anything (although tries all the time) unless we people give in to his ideas. That is why having faith is important, at least if you make a mistake you can repent and change yourself with the help of Christ, and only then satan is powerless.

One thing though, his good trick is that he made people believe that he doesn't exist, so people forget about God as well (and give up their soul since they give up the spiritual warfare which is a natural state for someone who wants to live with a clean heart and conscience…). Spiritual warfare is the call for all Christians, read the Scriptures. Wake up! Help others too! Life is too prescious because human life is eternal. Be careful what you feed to your soul.

well said Tristan

bloodlust……as pure and overly simplistic as it is

Springmeier writes LaVey used the circus/Hollywood mask to conceal he was the real deal. AKA In plain sight strategy.

like all serial pedos RP has a track recored of grooming beautiful but underage girls ie tate /kinski and his current lady
in his book he proudly wrote about how he loitered outside all girls boarding schools like a sick predator
tess of the d’urbavilles has an undercurrent of all the topics discussed
the question remains- is he alerting us to matters we need to be aware of or is he involving us in a spell hes weaved into his work ?
the HBO series true detective has the same feel as polanskis work -unsettling in the thread of incest and abuse of minors

& a new television series(Rosemary's Baby) starts this week on NBC!!!! Aint that some sh%t!!!

Good article! That living room picture in Life magazine isn't Polanski; it's clairvoyant Peter Hurkos.

1 – There is a scene showing two blood-stained VW Beetles parked outside the Dakota building, symbolising the two dead Beatles: Paul McCartney (recent research shows he may not even have died though) and the death to come, shot outside the Dakota, John Lennon.

2 – Paul was replaced and various doubles were used. Lennon also had doubles and may also have been replaced permanently. All The Beatles had doubles.

3 – Rosemary was the name of Yoko Ono's daughter whom was taken and hidden by her ex-husband who went on the run.

4 – John Lennon's infamous exclamation "it's all Roman Polanski's fault". Nobody knows for sure what to what he was referring.

5 – The movie poster for Rosemary's Baby resembles the album cover of John Lennon's Mind Games.

yoko;s daughter is named Kyoko not Rosemary

If they do exist for real, and they practice occultism; thats mean that the devil exist for real.If the devil exist, God exist. So why are they spending millions to explore space, to try to find if we are alone while they know the truth?

Holy s**t this is what autism sounds like

never heard anything more stupid than your post

Stumbled across this pretty disturbing picture of Susan Atkins (all-seeing-eye) made during the trial.

@ 6:25

They know that some people will know a bit of whats going on. They don't worry because most people don't even believe in Satan at all anymore and because they have done such a good job of making people in the know look like nut cases. I have noticed though that the closer to God I am and the more I tell people about all this the more I am spiritually harassed. Things start going wrong more than normal. I think these people who are raised this way in the illumanati don't know anything else. First they all they have DID from their programming. Second they get power and wealth. Third they believe in it. How else would Doris Duke be able to serve up her head in a grand dame ritual at the end of her life? These people are no doubt possessed. I like Svali as well.

terra I know nice people (family members and friends) who have a good heart and they aren't willing to know every detail of this illuminati stuff. They are aware from other sources that 9/11 was an inside job and other basic information but they aren't interested in knowing details. They're optimistic, they believe in after life, the existence of wicked and good, but they just don't want to know details as it boggles the mind. The elite has power and wealth but happiness? Nope. Not all of us want to be powerful and wealthy. It's only temporary, can't buy us immortality. Let them shove whatever they have where the sun doesn't sh!ne.

terra what the heck is goins on in lala land.

Is there a person with more than 2 brain cells there. Bruce Paltrow's ancestors were allegedly rabbis from Poland-Russia. His daughter Gwyneth was devastated when her dad died in 2002.

He also directed the creepy movie The Ninth Gate.

Yes and Johnny Depp has sex with the devil in that film!!!! Only he portrays himself as a sexy blonde that knows martial arts!!! lol

I loved this movie.

Anyways, I have a big question that has been bugging me. I do enjoy this site, as occult and symbolism interests me. I see alot of people on this site referring to 'sheeple' and 'mind control' and 'hiddne agends', yet 100% profess and declare obedience to a religion, which is the #1 form of Mind Control/ Social Control since Day One. Why is it that I am a 'sheep' when I don't beleive far-fetched conspiracy agendas, yet all of you who have accepted a quasi-mystical, pseudo historical vicarious blood sacrifice as your raison-de'etre with zero concrete proof have got it 'figured out'?

Aren't you all just 'sheep' as well, in a flock tended by a historically-non-existent demigod?

While I cant speak for every one on here or their beliefs in God….I will talk about my own faith in my own Christianity beliefs. I choose to believe in Jesus Christ because he said he was the Truth & The Light and I have yet to see much that truly opposes that with any other more firm truth to it. Yes RELIGION has been corrupted by the ways of wicked men….the Illuminati have had a big part in that I am sure via Knights Templar/Freemasonry/Roman Catholicism…however THEY did NOT write the Bible! The Bible speaks of many things in Revelations mainly as well as other books of scripture that warn us of these times and what the Illuminata/NWO/Conrtol Agenda types are accomplishing. If they wrote the Bible and it was simply to control people wouldn't they have made it more friendly toward their cause and not tell people that… Read more »

So most of the famous turds come from illuminati generational families then. And most of them make a big deal about being G-dly people. Beyonce etc. Wolves in sheep's clothing. What about Gwyneth Paltrow. She used to be good friends with Madonna and now with Beyonce and Jay-Z. She looks OK but there is something fishy about her. Tell me who your friends are to tell you who you are, an old saying. A big bunch of weirdos the lot of them.

That's how Beyonce's baby will come into the world ;P

Just a thought about the air conditioning. I remember a class at university where we learned that most revolutions and insurrections begin when it's hot – July or August in the northern climes. Air conditioning makes me very uncomfortable, so I rarely use it, and therefore I've noticed how weak people who use aircon become when you want to go on a walk. They can't adjust to the heat, right? So, when you mentioned the air conditioning scene in the movie, it made me think about that. Because most people who use aircon would be physically incapable of having a rebellion in the summer, their bodies would simply give out on them. I bet it also makes people drive more, and use more fuel for no reason. It always seemed like the SUV craze back in the 1990s was designed to use up oil as quickly as possible, which makes… Read more »

The whole roman polanski thing is still kind of new to me. but, im surprised that people who were alive and old enough to know better didn't cause more of a stir at the time.

To Inquiring Mind in regards to: “Satan” was often symbolized as a dragon, a snake, a lizard or a strange looking bi-pedal, upright standing and cleverly cunning, half human/half reptile creature.

To any inquisitive person – even Vigilant Citizen himself:

Please look at There are many evil symbols in that place. Is it only me, or do you see them too?

Vigilant Citizen, you’re amazing in your ability to analyse symbols. Rosemary’s Baby is such an evil movie. Interesting to read your expert analysing.

No VC the 60's anti-war anti-establishment hippie movement was designed and purposefully initiated by the same people who created Rosemary Baby and all the Satanic crap that arose around it. The Hippie movement is NOT GOOD, its all freaking written out to be exactly what Crowley spoke about instituting Do What Thou Wilt into the Public Mindset thru Media and Music. All these BS Hippie Ideals are NOT "Freedom" they are utter and total enslavement to the Satanic Elites Ideology and selling you and us our Total Enslavement into Satanism and Rebellion against GODS LAWS as cool and the in thing to be and do.

To the person who said that a helicopter flew overhead just as Minnie rounded the corner — look again. You must have compressed frames to arrive at the conclusion. Mia Farrow's retarded child walk, talk, and look has always made me choke, and she has honed it to a fine art over the years. In "Rosemary's Baby" she introduces the consummate retard as she has done everafter: Big ole retard empty-gaze, cripple's walk and insufferably stuttering childish voice. If she is called an "actress" any bum can claim likewise. As for Casavettes, his nasally, phony wop (he did Italy a great disservice) delivery has always irritated the hell out of me. His rambling "oeuvre" of noisy, mostly senseless, indie films should be forgotten, and eventually will be though his so-called acting will continue to irritate for many more years no thanks to Polansky: One of many paedophile and fake Holocost… Read more »

"To the person who said that a helicopter flew overhead just as Minnie rounded the corner — look again. You must have compressed frames to arrive at the conclusion."

–Yes, I haven't seen the film in several years; I was going on memory only. My recollection is that it was in the same shopping outing that Rosemary sees the anti-nativity, the helicopter flies overhead, and Minnie shows up. I could very well have gotten the order of events wrong. Still, I believe the points made are valid.

Yes, there is a helicopter heard/seen, but it is only much later that Minnie shows up. The connection you made between these 2 events intrigued me: Helicopter – Minnie, suggesting the grand scope of these "covens"; unfortunately, they occur too far apart to have that sort of significance.

As for the "anti-Nativity" on display…I'm not convinced. The (1 or 2) little skunks in the foreground are not usual in such scenes as are lambs, rabbits, squirrels; however, aside from his odoriferous self-defense mechanism, the skunk is also regarded as a gentle, woodsy animal. Then again, maybe you've detected something I didn't.


So, for precision's sake, the Nativity scene contains: 1 squirrel "playing" with 1 skunk, 1 llama, 1 fox, 1 gopher, 1 either Thomson's or Grant's gazelle, 1 what-appears-to-be a baby goat or kid, and a couple of black rabbits and two white doves perched on Mary's throne. I can't make it out, but it looks like a penguin standing next to the llama. An eclectic menagerie perhaps, but nothing that would put a 'satanic/anti-Nativity' complexion to the scene.

I am taking an American Film class in college, and we are watching this film tomorrow night in class. It's so weird that this article was posted!

Also, I live in a small town in Arkansas, and they are hosting the Ozark Film Festival this month. The highlight of the week festival, and what they are advertising the heaviest, is a restored version of the Metropololis film. It's crazy to see these things seeping into even small town America.
