Ira Levin, whose novel 'Rosemary's Baby' became the single greatest horror movie of all time, has passed away at the age of 78.
As Variety reported:
Long before authors like Stephen King routinely had their books turned into movies, Levin's novels moved vividly to the bigscreen. Besides "Rosemary's Baby" with Farrow and "The Boys From Brazil" with Olivier, Levin's novels "The Stepford Wives," "Sliver" and "A Kiss Before Dying" all were made into feature films.
Levin also penned a sequel to 'Rosemary' which was never made into a movie. To read our review of "Rosemary's Baby" the film, click here. Our review of "The Stepford Wives" is here. And our review of "Boys From Brazil" is here.
