N = Ninth Gate

Ninth Gate
Director: Roman Polanski

Johnny Depp as Dean Corso
Frank Langella as Balkan
Emmanuelle Seigner as the girl

Balkan, a rich and twisted book collector hires Corso to authenticate a rare book. The book: ‘The Nine Gates’ is the key to calling the Devil. Many of the characters are Satanists who find their own grisly end.

As Corso tracks the origins of the book he discovers that he has become fascinated, maybe even obsessed by the book. He doesn’t seem to have a sane response to the fact that everyone associated with the book dies horrible deaths.In the end, he wants to understand the book and find what it can give.

The film did make some money when it was release but was criticized as a remake of the director’s most popular film, Rosemary’s Baby.
