Abstract:In my thesis Birth and Ruin: The Devil versus Social Codes in Rosemary's Baby, The Exorcist and The Omen, I attempted to prove my argument that placing the Devil in the position of offspring in these three films not only visibly changes the balance of the human family unit in these films, but also influences the way we read the usual social codes of family, wife, mother and child in American cinema. In order to prove my claim, I used articles that examine these three films from a socio-cultural standpoint, as well as film reviews. I used my sources as the basis for a connection between my principal statement, about the meaning of Devil as offspring, and my separate arguments for the films. I compared the ideas of family, wife, mother and child from one film to another, and linked the comparisons to our views of these concepts' usual social codes in cinema. Using my methods, I found that the human family unit in all three films changes under the influence of the Devil as offspring, and that the Devil's status in each film shifts the Western society's preconceived views of concepts and institutions such as children and family. I concluded that the three films open the door for further study of these issues, and that this exploration is an ongoing cinematic endeavor.
