TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 10 October 2016
In this 1976 supernatural revenge horror, shy, bullied high school student Carrie White (Sissy Spacek) is once more humiliated at school but Carrie’s classmate Sue (Amy Irving) feels guilty and tries to make amends little realising the tragic outcome her actions will cause.
Sissy Spacek is superb as the naive and confused Carrie as is Piper Laurie as her fanatical mother, while the support cast are excellent. Although this is not fast paced, it is entertaining and maintains plenty of interest right to the end, but the music is hit and miss. The build up of tension and the ‘basic’ settings help create a reality that tends to be missing from many modern movies [gain a *].
The single disc offers play, scene selection, subtitles [English HoH and most Baltic countries plus Portuguese] and special features [2 documentaries, a featurette, photo-gallery, original trailer and evolution of Carrie]. Try to get through the menu as quickly as possible as it shows you the main sequence [lose a *]. [I wish the makers would stop doing this!!]. This 18 X rating features gratuitous full frontal nudity and mild swearing from the start and all done in slo-mo with a decidedly 70s soft porn soundtrack, this does start pretty sleazily but soon gets into its stride, the violence building gradually throughout to the end climax.

the 70's gave us many controversial and disturbing movies, the censors had
become more leniant allowing stronger material, this movie surely among the
best of that era.
'carrie white' is a naive teen with little understanding of the ways of the
world, at home she is dominated by her restrictive and overbearing mother, and
is frequently the object of verbal abuse by her fellow pupils.
the ring leader has hatched up an elaborate plan to further humiliate 'carrie'
at the school prom setting with her glamorous boyfriend
when the plan is executed in front of the whole school year and teachers, 'carrie'
is mocked by all in attendance, however the sick-joke is about to be reversed.
'carrie' turns her wrath on those who mock her using her powers with deadly effect,
well worth a spin, especially so if you've not seen it before.
The upgrade to the Blu-Ray format has given the picture quality a step-up.
