This film has always been one of my all-time favourites, and as far as Stephen King adaptations go, far outstrips the Shining - the Kubrick version at any rate! And at last, available in the UK on bluray!
There have been thousands of words written and spoken, argued and debated over this movie, so I will not add any more; you either love, hate or are indifferent to it. But, if you love it, and have a bluray player, add this to your collection. Worth every penny. The transfer is crisp and clear, the colour definition is great - I've never seen Piper Laurie's hair so red since I first saw this film at the cinema back in '76! Everything is so much more detailed - for example, the Last Supper tapestry on the wall at Carrie's home, lit by lightning, is so vivid. And that 'split-screen' effect/sequence at the Prom is far better!
That about wraps it up - turn down the lights, get some candles lit, crack open a few beers and watch this on your tv as it should be seen!
