Carrie 1976

From Amazon: This terrifying adaptation of Stephen King's bestselling horror novel was directed by shock maestro Brian De Palma for maximum, no-holds-barred effect. Sissy Spacek stars as Carrie White, the beleaguered daughter of a religious kook (Piper Laurie) and a social outcast tormented by her cruel, insensitive classmates. When her rage turns into telekinetic powers, however, school's out in every sense of the word. De Palma's horrific climax in a school gym lingers forever in the memory, though the film is also built upon Spacek's remarkable performance and Piper Laurie's outlandishly creepy one. John Travolta has a small part as a thug, De Palma's...

Carrie Movie Review by Clayton (12/10/2011)

It's mind over matter.

Carrie White doesn't wield an axe, turn her head around backwards, drink blood, or eat human flesh, but she sure can do some real neat tricks with telekinesis.

This evocative story of a high school misfit sadly degenerates into cheap, gory, melodrama when Carrie unleashes her powers in revenge...

Carrie Movie Review by Jarrod (5/9/2008)

'Carrie' was a breakthrough for Stephen King as his first big bestseller and for director Brian De Palma, as his first major box office hit. The transition from page to screen occurred with alarming rapidity; the film was released in 1976, the book was published in 1974, so De Palma and writer Lawrence D Cohen obviously...

Carrie Movie Review by Movie Addict (3/1/2008)

I am sure that I've seen this film before, but I watched it again to see how Stephen King managed to write a story that captured teen-aged angst amidst bullying and popularity contests.

Sis Spacek was simply incredible and it is no surprised that she got the first Academy Award nomination for a horror film. Piper Laurie...

Carrie Movie Review by BillyBob (2/9/2008)

About a year before seeing the movie 'Carrie' I had read the Stephen King novel of the same name. What a relief it was that the Carrie character in the movie wasn't the same as the one in the novel. King had created a despicable character in his over-long novel. King had made Carrie so drab and grotesque that you could...

Acting is the most underrated element of a quality scare flick. All of these classic horror films have at...
