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. I had forgotten John Travolta was in it, he's a hoot playing the 'dumb jock'. His girlfriend endlessly calls him a "stupid S$#%"! The overly religious mother is way over the top, of course, and you'll hate her on sight! This is more a revenge movie that a horror film. The effects are a little silly, for example, the main weapon of choice for Carrie is a fire hose! The end of this movie made me jump out of my chair - I won't spoil it for you! See this one before the new remake that just came out.
