Superfans can't get enough of 'Rosemary's Baby'

ST. LOUIS (KSDK) – Maybe you caught NBC's spin on the classic horror film "Rosemary's Baby." Despite the remake, for many in St. Louis, the original never went away.

"Rosemary's Baby" sent chills right down America's spine in 1968. It's a thriller about Satanic cults, an unborn baby and the devil himself!

Even now, dedicated fans of this fright flick are keeping its legacy alive.

"It's a very scary story on motherhood!" said Michelle McCue, with

McCue and Tom Stockman run in St. Louis. They meet at the Tivoli for a regular dose of fear. There are trivia nights, festivals and lots and lots of "Rosemary's Baby."

There have been many attempts to revive the franchise, from a critically panned 1976 sequel to the new miniseries.

The miniseries is set in Paris rather than New York City, and experts believe it could really deliver a big audience, mainly because it delivers the worst – and first – bad guy ever: the devil himself!

"People continue to be spooked by him. He always delivers. That's the thing about Satan," said local film historian Tim Mestres.

Some critics say the new miniseries has all the thrills and chills of the original – and that it could become an instant classic.

Part two airs on Thursday night, right here on NewsChannel 5.
