Go to your closet and pray.

  • Excerpt: 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.

King+DePalma+Spacek= Masterpiece.

  • Excerpt: I 1st saw thismovie when I was in my early teens and it scared me to death. It had such an Impact on me that I have since became a huge Stephen King fan and have read every one of his books at least 3 times. Combining his storytelling with DePalma's brilliant Direction created a masterpiece. "Carrie" is not your average horror story, so I'm warning those who haven't seen this and expect it to be some all-out horror film full of gore, because "Carrie" is quite different.

"Carrie" marked Brian De Palma's breakthrough…

3 August 2008
  • Summary: It is a classic offbeat horror-melodrama merging harmoniously the family Gothic extravaganza, supernatural power, and a woman's movie of a peculiar kind… It remains the cinema's best adaptation of a Stephen King novel… The film initiated De Palma's inclination for surprise diverts between playful imagination and reality, as in the opening, which swifts from a soft-core porn fantasia of girls taking a shower in the locker room to the fact of Carrie's menstruation for the...

Carrie: 8/10

  • Summary: Carrie boomed Sissy Spacek's and John Travolta's career. I understand why. Carrie starts off at a gym locker room, where we find out how much the other kids hate Carrie. But, we find out that Carrie has some powers. Like in other Stephen King book-movies, the supernatural aspect is only minor compared to the rest of the story, but it comes into play at the end. Carrie's mom (Piper Laurie) is an over-protective religious zealot who makes The Royal Tenenbaums seem normal.

Anyone who expected just another horror movie is obviously dissapointed!

  • Summary: I just came back from a special showing of Carrie in the student's cinema of my university and I must say one thing: THANK YOU to the director, for this is one of the best, most moving films I've ever seen. I honestly don't understand the "it's not scary" mentality! Now, whether you want to call this horror film or thriller or whatever else is up to you, but I think Carrie's scope cannot reaches beyond just one genre!
