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

3.0 out of 5 stars CENSORSHIP LIVES! March 1 2004
Format:DVD
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...

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Stephen King Movie As Always June 26 2004
Format:DVD
"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.

4.0 out of 5 stars lil more vulgar than expected Dec 10 2013
By Corpse
Format:DVD
if though I had never seen Carrie its reputation was very clear to me. I think that because it is so widely referenced in other media that most people know the main idea behind the film without even seeing it. That said the opening scene is one that I was definately not expecting from such a main stream film. That and the over the top violence of the conclusion as well as the crazy personality of the mother. Even though I thought I was getting into a movie about a girl who is bullied to the point of gaining telepathic powers to use for revenge...I got so much more.

A YOUNG GIRL [SISSY SPACEK] MUST PUT UP WITH THE HARSH PEOPLE THAT BULLY HER IN SCHOOL EVERYDAY. HOWEVER, WHEN SHE'S HUMILIATED AT THE SCHOOL PROM, SHE USES HER TELEKINETHIC POWERS FOR REVENGE. VERY GOOD PREMISE. HAS GOOD ACTING [WHICH IS ALMOST A RARITY IN TEEN HORROR FILMS], AND IT EVEN MAKES A GOOD MELODRAMA. THIS IS A MUST-HAVE FOR ANYONE'S HORROR DVD COLLECTION. FOLLOWED BY A BROADWAY MUSICAL, ''THE RAGE; CARRIE 2'' 23 YEARS LATER, AND A DIRECT-TO-VIDEO REMAKE IN 2003.

5.0 out of 5 stars They're all gonna laugh at you! July 27 2000
Format:VHS Tape
"Carrie" is one heck of a movie. It's horror and drama all wrapped up in one. Sissy Spacek plays the timid Carrie White, a girl who is tormented by her classmates, and abused by her religious fanatic mother, Margaret (Piper Laurie). No one likes her, except for her gym teacher Miss Collins (Betty Buckley), but after a terrible prank in the girls locker room, one of the pranksters, Sue Snell (Amy Irving) feels sorry for what she did and asks her popular football player jock boyfriend Tommy (William Katt) to ask Carrie to the prom. He agrees and for once, the audience is happy for Carrie, seeing she is having a great time at the prom, but the evil Chris Hargenson (Nancy Allen) decides to pull a prank on Carrie that proves all too deadly. This film is fantastic. It is a cross between drama (the first half) and complete horror (the second half). The weird thing is, you really do feel sorry for Carrie! The way she is tormented by her classmates and her mother is awful, but the viewer knows about her new "powers" and she really makes use of them during that prom! By the way, in case anyone is confused by this, Carrie was imagining her classmates laughing at her, they really weren't. Based on the novel by Stephen King, it spawned numerous imitations and was followed by a sequel 23 years later.

5.0 out of 5 stars De Palma's Standout Creation of King's Carrie July 5 2007
Format:DVD
The only flaw of this Brian Depalma vehicle is...dare I say this...the story? Yup, telekinetic devil child? It's certainly not boring but I almost can't possibly grant it a five star rating. I'm going to anyway. King's first novel is not his best, but it is still very good. I will assert that the film is actually better and Carrie is one of the best adaptations of a King novel ever made into a film. My hats off to Depalma for creating one of the scariest films of all time in the process. I'm a huge horror fan, so Carrie has quite a few things to take into account for your own tastes. It's a bit dated and requires some imagination from the viewer...I'm probably preaching the quire here anyway.

Most people my age have only seen the edited television version which is on about three or four times every Halloween. The made for television remake was a horrorshow in a different way because it came close to ruining the credibility of its original. Depalma holds back his amazing technical abilities intentionally and builds this tale of revenge and justice up for one of the most climatic sequences ever made. "They're all gonna laugh at you" rings in Carrie's ears after a bucket of pig's blood is dropped on her head...the music goes from extremely happy and glorious to tense and terrifying, the lighting goes from normal to blood red like Carries now blood soaked appearance. We go from feeling sorry for her to feeling sorry for the kids who we thought for one minute might deserve what's coming to them in a few moments. What follows is quite possible the most brilliantly filmed horror sequence ever. Split screening and panning from Sissy Spacek's amazingly tense eyes and face to her victims soon to be lifeless bodies.
