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.

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.Read more ›
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.

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 23 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 on Aug. 15 2014 by W McMaster
