The TV remake of Rosemary's Baby, starring Zoe Saldana and Patrick J. Adams , is a good place to start.
It arrives on Blu-ray (plus Digital HD), DVD (plus Digital) and Digital HD August 19, from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Based on the best-selling suspense novel by Ira Levin, Rosemary’s Baby features a teleplay by James Wong and Scott Abbott and is directed by Agnieszka Holland. Also starring Jason Isaacs and Carole Bouquet, the Rosemary’s Baby Blu-ray and DVD each include two featurettes.
Set in present-day France, Rosemary’s Baby centers on a young married couple that escapes New York and moves to Paris with hopes of leaving their sad past behind. After a series of unfortunate events, Rosemary and Guy Woodhouse are presented with an offer they can't refuse–an apartment at the most prestigious address in the city. Problem is, it comes with a haunted past, and an immeasurable price.
