    Rosemary's Baby, Saw the movie decades before reading the book and it is exceptionally well adapted. We see it's influence all over the place, from Chuck Palahniuk to...well this article puts it better than my ramblings.

    Hope we can get at least one more vote to break the tie, but stated votes seem to indicate The Great Escape for now.

    I had to vote for RB because of a higher cultural impact.

    I've only seen one of the movies, but not voting for it because I didn't think it was all that and a bag of chips. So abstaining.

    The poll has closed. Rosemary's Baby moves on and The Great Escape is eliminated.
