High school senior Carrie White is a social outcast, largely due to being unwise to the ways of the world based on her upbringing. Her mother, Margaret White, is a religious fanatic, her extreme views primarily targeted against sex, which she believes is a sin. She even believes natural associated processes such as menstruation are a sin, about which she has refused to mention to Carrie. Mrs. White’s beliefs were taken to that extreme largely because of her own failed marriage and her husband Ralph long ago having run off with another woman. The only adult authority figure who tries to help Carrie with her life is her phys ed teacher, Miss Collins, who is nonetheless warned not to get too close to go against how Mrs. White chooses to raise Carrie, Mrs. White whose beliefs are well known in the community. An impromptu event that happens among Carrie’s phys ed classmates against her leads to her classmates being punished. One of those students, self absorbed Chris Hargensen, vows revenge against Carrie for that punishment, the method of the revenge associated to the phys ed class incident. Another student however, the popular Sue Snell, begins to feel sorry for Carrie. In wanting to help her get out of her shell, Sue asks her boyfriend, the equally popular Tommy Ross, to take Carrie to the senior prom instead of her. This move does not sit well with Mrs. White, who in her extreme view believes Carrie will fall prey to sin. All these competing issues lead to Carrie deciding on an impulse to use a newfound skill to free herself from the figurative chains that have long been placed around her, with tragic consequences.
Plot: Carrie White, a shy and troubled teenage girl who is tormented by her high school peers and her fanatically religious mother, begins to use her powers of telekinesis to exact revenge upon them.

Carrie boomed Sissy Spacek’s and John Travolta’s career. I understand why.
Carrie starts off at a gym locker room, where we find out how much the other kids hate Carrie. But, we find out that Carrie has some powers. Like in other Stephen King book-movies, the supernatural aspect is only minor compared to the rest of the story, but it comes into play at the end. Carrie’s mom (Piper Laurie) is an over-protective religious zealot who makes The Royal Tenenbaums seem normal. So Carrie tries to cope with her horrible life, but it’s getting tougher and tougher.
Spacek is exceptional as Carrie, and I now know why she was nominated for Best Actress. Her emotions are real, not some fake tear drops that make us think she’s sad. Either she has great motivation, or she’s one of the best actresses of the century (or both!). Laurie was equally good as her mother who locks Carrie up in a closet everytime she thinks that Carrie has sinned. This movie wouldn’t be half of what it was if the acting wasn’t so great. When Carrie was sad, you were sad. When the other kids ridiculed her, you felt like you wanted to kill the kids. When she smiled, you smiled. Emotions that raw couldn’t come from just any movie.
If you know me, I’m a stickler for character developement. Carrie didn’t take much time, but from the opening scene you knew about Carrie and her weakness. So are the secondary characters; they’re nicely developed even if their role isn’t that major. Travolta had a miniscule role, but he was fine in it; it led to Grease and Saturday Night Fever.
The prom scene has got to be one of the most memorable scenes from a horror movie. That red tint is awesome; it’s like a premonition. In fact, the movie is full of premonition: the red tint, the freaky looking voodoo doll, “They’re all going to laugh at you.” I’m assuming that director Brian De Palma meant to put that in, so it just isn’t about some supernatural powers, it’s also about foreshadowing. Also, I dig that camera movement during the dancing.
The blood and gore wasn’t held back, but they just put in what was necessary. De Palma obviously stole from Hitchcock’s Psycho, mainly the music cue whenever Carrie is using her telepathy. Also, her school, Bates High, is another Psycho refrence.
Carrie was also very creepy. It wasn’t a thrill-a-minute, but at the ending, that was Scary with a capital S. The last ten or twenty minutes were scare-inducing for sure. That last jump scene in the dream…wow! It’s still jumping at me. If there was one complaint I had to do about the movie, it’s that it took too much time to get to main scene and the prom went on a little too long, but other than that it’s a first class horrror/thriller that any horror buff needs to see.
My rating: 8/10
Rated R for nudity, some language, and blood.
