This movie has always stayed with me. Yes it's rather dated, and the effects compared to today's are lame, but still it conveys a certain level of genuine creepiness that, well, current horrors rarely deliver. I suppose this comes from the music, Brian de Palma's direction, and the focus on Carrie's relationship with her Christian fundamentalist mother, played wonderfully by Piper Laurie. Ultimately the tension and abuse Carrie has had to endure both at school from bullies, and at home at the hands of her crazed mother, culminate in perhaps one of the most famous scenes in movie history. Its build-up is just as amazing, as it ratchets up the tension immensely to the final "bloody" act.

So, put away your brash, overboard modern day Hollywood horrors ladened with gore and nothing else. If you want a real horror movie that stays with you, that affects you in ways you might not understand, get this movie.

Carrie stands centre stage drenched in pigs blood. Her head lowers and lifts slowly. The screen splits. An ominous hum echoes through the soundtrack as the stage curtains burst into flames behind her. Even writing about this scene gives me me goose bumps. Not because it's scary or because it's a classic horror. It's just so staggeringly beautiful. A total cinematic rejection of realism.

The story of Carrie may belong to Stephen King, but the film belongs to DePalma. This movie is the perfect example of why cinema is more than scripts and performances. DePalma was never just a Hitchcock copyist. His own style is instantly recognizable, an amalgam of many different influences infused with his own instincts. The influence of Hitchcock is there, but is no more evident than the Antononioni of Zabriskie Point or the colour coordination of Bergman's Cries and Whispers. The influence of Carrie was itself felt throughout horror well into the 1980s. This was in lots of ways the last American cinematic art-form to remain committed to set pieces and important scenes rather than mundane realism. Scary is an overrated concept in horror. Nothing is scary after a while, but style and mood transcend the limits and become something else.

BRIAN DE PALMA'S CARRIE is still a classic thriller/Horror these days, better than the remake
based on Stephen kings novel CARRIE
Brilliant acting from Amy irving, Nancy allen, PJ soles, Sissy spacek and Piper Laurie as the religious Nutcase
brilliant writing and of course brilliant Directing
this U.K. blu-ray release is ALL REGIONS blu-ray it says ABC on back cover
so it has the exact same HD picture quality and same 5.1 Master audio quality as the U.S. blu-ray version
the only big Difference is the U.S. version has no extras at all carried over from the dvd release from years ago
where is this U.K. blu-ray release has all the featurettes from the DVD release

so Definitely buy the U.K. blu-ray of CARRIE if you love this film
I gave it 5 stars for sure, Definitley worth the cash

I was looking through my TV guide for something to watch and this film automatically stood out to me. When i told my mum I was going to watch it she recommended it to me, which really surprised me because my mum is not usually a horror movie fan. I am so glad that I did notice this film because it is one of the best films ive seen recently, which considering the films i have watched recently, (One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, LA Confidential, The Shining and other reknown films) is a really amazing feat. Well it may not be as good as One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, but what is? I dont think that it is fair to compare carrie to anything outside of the horror genre so I will say it is up there in the top three horror films I have seen. To sum up that paragraph , VERY VERY VERY GOOD!!!
With regards to the film itself, I was unsure how to feel towards the main character, but ultimately I felt a great deal of sympathy for her. Sissy Spacek's portrayl of the naive and bullied Carrie is truely amazing, and considering she got an oscar nomination for it it proves how remarkable it was, as horror films tend not to be acknowledge by the Academy. This film left me with a great deal to think about and left me feeling tremendously sorry for Carrie and her eventual victims.
The final scenes in this film however are what set it apart from other films. Usually horror films tend to have violence for the majority of the way through, but in this film the beginning is very quiet in terms of violence/horror and until the last 20 or so minuites could be from a film in the drama genre. The contrast is stark and disturbing. The effects are remarkable and considering the age of the film are still very powerful images. The film is worth buying for the ending alone, it is that damned good.
To sum up this entire blabbering on by me, if you like horror films are psycological films, like me, BY THIS FILM NOW.

For a film that is 39 years old still in my book down as one of the best horror films ever made and still shocks me like it was the first time i had ever seen it, Carrie played by the very talented Sissy Spacek and Carrie's mother played by a very talented Piper Laurie, what makes this so great is it isnt very high on blood and gore its more of a disturbing and shocking film and leaves you feeling all sorts of feelings when the film ends, from the bullying to the prom to Carrie's mother who is one of the most disturbing characters i have ever seen on film there is so much in this film that just ticks all the right boxes for a decent horror, this is also my favourite Stephen King film 10/10.

Picture 4.5 out of 5

Sound 4.5 out of 5
