Rosemary's Baby is one of my favourite movies and an incredibly interesting look at femininity in the 1960s. And Farrow is great in it, very much helped by a boss hair cut. After the fervour and success of baring the Devil's baby she hooked-up with Woody Allen, named one of their kids Satchel and well... it didn't go well from there. She stayed quiet professionally but busted her ass in her charity work still appearing in the occasional play or film.
Then 2006 rolled around. Some studio executive realized the date June 6, 2006 would be coming and decided, nay, prophesized that The Omen was due for a remake.
I'll give the producers credit, it's a pretty cute gimmick casting Mia Farrow as the Devil's minion. But a gimmick cannot work on its own. It must have a purpose. Throughout the whole movie she veers between vacant stares and spider-monkey attacks. It's nothing if not consistent.
