Product Description

Product Description

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.
Genre: Horror
Rating: R
Release Date: 3-AUG-2004
Media Type: DVD

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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...

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.

"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.

I'm a giant film buff. I've seen probably thousands of films from many, many, great directors, but I have to say, this is the BEST movie I have ever seen, as well as my favorite movie of all time. I don't think there will ever be a movie will as much emotion, happiness, pain, sadness or humiliation as this masterpiece from extraordinary visionist (an VERY underrated director) Brian de Palma. Sissy Spaceck gives the greatest performance ever committed to film, showing every level of the emotion is Carrie. The supporting cast is outstanding, with my favorite co-star being the amazing Betty Buckely as Carrie's caring gym teacher, and only friend, Miss Collins. Brian de Palma does an amazing job visually with this movie. Carrie's long, slow-motion walk up the stage to be knighted prom queen, with the lovely score accompanying it, is one of my all-time favorite movie scenes.
I can't describe this movie, except to say that everyone should have it on their shelves.

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.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
I've always heard about this movie, but never got around to watching it. I'm assuming that it was intense when it was released, but now that I saw it, I feel that it is relatively tame. I thought there would be more telekinesis scenes, but there aren't that many. The bulk of the movie shows how Carrie gets tortured by her fellow classmates. We also get some scenes where she is badly treated by her mom. The upside is that I got the movie shipped very very fast, like within 2 days of the purchase and in perfect condition. I guess there's an over abundance of special effects nowadays, which lessens Carrie's portrayal of her powers...
