A young girl with telekinetic powers is the school wallflower and she bears the brunt of her classmates jokes. Blood runs rampant when she gets her revenge.
Release Date: 3-AUG-2004
Media Type: DVD
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 future wife, Nancy Allen, is his girlfriend, and Amy Irving makes her screen debut as one of the girls giving Carrie a hard time. The DVD release has a widescreen presentation, Dolby sound, theatrical trailer, and optional French subtitles. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Sissy Spacek does a fine job in this movie and the special effects for the time were great. Some of the other actors did a good job, but Sissy Spacek makes this film.Published 11 months ago by Gord H
Love the movie Carrie from 1976 but the blu-ray disc is the same one that came out in early 2000s. Packaging is new though. Too bad.Published 12 months ago by W McMaster
This is the original, which spawned about 4 remakes so far, I think. I never really saw the entire movie before, so it was nice to finally see everything in order. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Len the Sound Guy
