Provocative, thrilling adaptation of the Stephen King bestseller. Top knotch acting and direction. Under dogs will cheer for Carrie during the fiery prom scene, now legendary.

Sissy Spacek's performance is what pulls this film out of 70's horror schlock, as she convincingly plays a disturbed and ridiculed girl. She plays what might amount to a film villain by some and yet, by her vulnerable performance, manages to create a level of sympathy. Also, early John Travolta sighting!

Carrie (1976) review

The story revolves around Carrie White (Sissy Spacek), whose mother is a deranged prayerful mother who is overly protective. Shows some dated aspects in terms of the horror genre and pace was a bit sluggish. Camera direction was tedious to a fault that it tends to becomes its weakness, especially the dizzying show where Carrie dances in the prom. On the positive note, Spacek did a splendid job with her portrayal and the screenplay was effective with lines: "Everyone isn't bad, Mama! Everything isn't a sin!" from Carrie and "These are godless times, Mrs. Snell." from Mrs. White. It's difficult for a horror film to be effective especially when the lead is a child. Still, Carrie is considered a classic that it is because of the noteworthy performances, themes (of isolation, bullying, fa...

"Carrie" by Yojimbo

An awkward and unpopular high school girl reaches sexual maturity and discovers she has the power of telekenesis. Almost inevitably, Brian DePalma's tale of supernatural vengeance is based upon a Stephen King story and right from the opening scene full of full frontal nudity in a girl's locker room that is so gratuitous it crosses the line into outright seediness, it displays his usual level of subtlety and sophistication. Nil. In fact DePalma's clod hopping direction almost wrecks the film, with its painfully heavy handed religious and sexual imagery and some pretty unforgivable audio-visual bullshit during the finale. What makes the film are the powerful central performances from Sissy Spacek as the young girl who only wants acceptance, instead finding cruelty wherever she turns and Pip...

Go to your closet and pray.

Spellbinding and highly influential horror movie that remains one of the true classics of the genre.
Carrie is a macabre fairy tale for the modern age oozing style and imagination.
Boasting the ultimate 70s High School cast (John Travolta, William Katt, P J Soles, Amy Irving and Nancy Allen) and featuring Sissy Spacek in a role she was seemingly born to play, Carrie is manipulative and horrifying, portraying the heartbreaking effects of being an outcast in society.
Stephen Kings first novel is brilliantly adapted by director Brian De Palma and his flashy and kinetic camerawork are a significant reason for the films immense success.
Reportedly one of the most watched movies on Halloween by American teens, its hard to deny its endless ability to shock and terrorise a whole new generatio...
