We’re trapped in a hellish circle of horror influences.
Even before the unveiling of mother! at the Venice Film Festival, the influence of Polanski’s Rosemary’s Baby on Darren Aronofsky’s latest film was apparent simply from the poster design. It certainly helps when Paramount owns the distribution rights to both films. With little to no details released about the film until just a few weeks ago, the Rosemary’s Baby-influenced poster led pundits and fans alike to wonder if mother! may even be a remake of Polanski’s horror classic. After the Venice screening last week followed by a screening at TIFF yesterday, reviews quickly alluded to influence of Polanski’s film on Aronofsky’s project (or did they just follow the marketing bread crumbs?).
