"Carrie's climactic empowerment is all at once the tragedy and triumph of a young woman trapped between Biblical regression and a secular coming-out." - Little White Lies

"An exercise in high style that even the most unredeemably rational among moviegoers should find enormously enjoyable."
-
Time Magazine

This classic horror movie based on Stephen King's first novel stars Sissy Spacek as Carrie White, a shy, diffident teenager who is the butt of practical jokes at her small-town high school. Her blind panic at her first menstruation, a result of ignorance and religious guilt drummed into her by her fanatical mother, only causes her classmates' vicious cruelty to escalate, despite the attentions of her overly solicitous gym teacher. Finally, when the venomous Chris Hargenson engineers a reprehensible prank at the school prom, Carrie lashes out in a horrifying display of her heretofore minor telekinetic powers.
