Since I was asked to grant My impressions of the forthcoming Rosemary's Baby production:
It will probably be amusing for what it is, but it certainly would not take away from the first version, just like any and all of these other "remakes"*, it will merely be different, and probably not up to par with the foundation film, ultimately ending up forgettable, or a novel footnote. After all, all one has to do is just place the preferred version into the VCR, DVD player, what have you, and enjoy it timelessly at one's leisure. Now and again, there are certain theaters who play original films on the big screen, so if that is the experience desired, it can be accommodated as well.
The cinematic masterpiece was completed, and all that can be done since is take cues from it. It would be interesting to see how the impregnation scene will be displayed, and just who's eyes will be shown, considering Magus LaVey's previous participation. Of particular note, the Baphomet sigil displayed on a laptop was quite noticeable.
Obviously, this presentation is different for employing a "mixed couple", with an African-American actress, of course, in line with the herd's pre-occupation with race, in settings and terminology in which they are more familiar. Probably the best result from this impending release is an increased availability and concentration on items, information, and interest in the optimum Year III film, along with the subject matter.
This is yet another obvious indication on post-2K's media degradation, as they are frequently looking to plots and characters from pre-2k for ideas and replication, with the implementation of film-making technology and CGI, but seem to consistently fall short in that visual consistency, as well as talent; but it seems to match the herd, while those with more evolved sensibilities will continue to pursue superior presentations. ∞
* Dark Shadows and Mockingbird Lane come to mind, as well as the forthcoming Beetlejuice II film. Dark Shadows was amusing; it was presented like a 'Gothic comedy', while Mockingbird Lane was rather predictably lackluster, with the exception of the wonderful performance of Grandpa by Eddie Izzard. However, Beetlejuice 2 will feature the participation of creative Nucleus Tim Burton, as well as Michael Keaton, Winona Ryder, and Glen Shadix.
