Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

OK- I'm not going to review all 200+ comments on this release (Special Edition DVD) to see if anyone else has noticed; however I saw no mention of the fact that the reframing on this edition is NOT what the cinematographer shot. Case in point- the shower scene: Carrie is now cropped at the waist- SURPRISE! Pubic hair gone! No offensive nudity here! (I own the VHS which shows the offending area.) When I buy a film I want to see what i remember from the theatrical release, not some committee-decreed morality censorship...

"Carrie" is a monumental film released in 1976 that was so fresh for its time that many rushed to the theater to see it. This is based on the first novel published by Stephen King in 1974. When it was released, no other author had touched such territories in a such unique style. The unusual theme kept people curious to what he would write next. He immediately became a celebrity. Such uniqueness remains fresh today. "Carrie" is also the first film adaptation of one of his novels. It earned two Oscar nominations: Best Actress (Sissy Spacek) and Best Supporting Actress (Piper Laurie).
This brilliant plot of a high school student, Carrie White, continues growing more interesting moment after moment. The mystery and the suspense builds as Carrie slowly discovers and understands her supernatural powers. Once she learns that it has a name, telekenesis, they begin growning more destructively. However, the emotional aspect remains present, namely through the bullying and being emotionally tortured by her abusive religious mother. The chain of events keep audiences watching closely up to the chilling conclusion. The haunting conclusion has since become famous like the shower scene in "Psycho" (1960). Her rampage has since been imitated by several films, but none have matched the intensity of "Carrie". Such tremendous film quality goes beyond Carrie's humilating moment of having pig's blood dumped on her by some bully pranksters during her senior prom.
The physical surroundings and the performance enhance the eerie theme. The house decorations enhance the good vs. evil aspect, going beyond the multiple crosses. They give the supernatural plot portions a deeper horror feel.

Be careful whom you pick on especially after puberty.

Carrie White(Sissy Spacek) comes from a very oppressive environment. Her mother Margaret White (Piper Laurie) is a zealot and does not stand for any nasty doings. Carrie is not the most popular girl in school. Let's face it she is the butt of many practical jokes.

The time comes when puberty hit her hard. And Stephen King says that is the time when any latent supernatural tendencies creep out. Sure enough Carrie finds that she can telekinesis. She even gets help from her PE teacher.

Are things going to work out better for Carrie?

Where did she get such a gift?

Do you suppose she will be invited to the Prom by Tommy (William Katt)?

What ever you do, do not make a grave mistake.

This is a well crafted story with fine actors. This theme will play out again and again in future horror movies where the person getting picked on gets their revenge at a price.

This movie is a very rare type of teen horror moive. It perfectly balences our fears and teen angst with phenominal acting at the same time. I think the reason why Carrie is still so fresh even today is because we all have a little bit of Carrie in all of us. All of us at one point in our lives have been teased, beaten up, or felt like you didn't belong at some point in our lives. We all know exactly how Carrie feels when all the girls laugh at her at the prom, or the excitment she felt when the most popular guy in schol askes her to the prom. We have all experienced these feeling throught out our teen years. Pino Donaggio did a superb job with the sountrack. Its so simple yet so effective. The music playing just before the blood is dumped still gets me everytime. It sounds almost like a clock ticking. Almost as if itsticking away the time that the kids have left to live. Even though I know whats gonna happen that scene never fails to scare me to death. This movie is a must see. Even todays teens will love this movie.

The best movie monsters have always been ones that are the most human, and Brian DePalma's powerful adaptation of Stephen King's bestseller "Carrie" features some of the most vile to ever fill the screen. Selfish, sadistic, arrogant, violent, and senseless, the teenagers that torment Carrie White (an outstanding Sissy Spacek) deserve their punishment--and more--and DePalma milks every drop of sympathy for Carrie and animosity for them possible. Unlike so many DePalma films ("The Untouchables" being a notable exception), "Carrie" builds to its climax with a natural sense of inevitability, making the tragedy that ensues all the more devastating. By now, the plot is well known; a misfit with budding telekinetic powers struggles with puberty, a cruel religious zealot of a mother (Piper Laurie), and a high school populated by representatives of everything that is despicable about humanity (or European-American culture, as none of the major players is an ethnic minority and the social commentary is rather obvious). When the full extent of her powers are realized, Carrie cleans house, sparing neither the guilty nor the innocent. (Even a well-meaning teacher ignorant of Carrie's true powers is not spared.) DePalma gives the film a dreamy sensibility, and now that the music and fashion have returned somewhat, "Carrie" does not seem as dated as it was even a few years ago. Special mention goes to John Travolta, Nancy Allen, and P.J. Soles for being so effectively rotten (their glee when slaughtering a pig is especially creepy); their villainy is far more chilling than the paint-by-numbers variety that most actors portray. And what of Carrie, herself? The film correctly leaves that up to us to decide.
