In honor of Ivy Style’s 666th post, we’re lighting the fire-and-brimstone-scented candles, putting on Berlioz’ “Witches’ Sabbath” (or maybe the Rolling Stones’ “Sympathy For The Devil”), and paying tribute to the 1968 movie “Rosemary’s Baby” with a hearty cry of “Hail Satan!”
In the Roman Polanski film, which is actually set a few years earlier, actor John Cassavetes plays a struggling New York stage actor who joins a Satanic cult in order to further his career. The things people will do to get ahead.
Cassavetes wears some tradly items in the movie. There’s also an elderly gent character in the film who wears a great tan duffel coat.
But we don’t recommend you check out the film for style reasons. It’s a fun watch and creepy watching Mia Farrow learn she’s given birth to the spawn of Satan, who’s named Adrian. You can be sure the kid will grow up to be well dressed. After all, the devil is a dandy. — CC
