One of cinema's ultimate operatic teenage melodramas. I have seen "Carrie" more times than I can count, and yet it never loses its uncommon heartbreak and blood-curdling dramatic power.

Very strange albeit good decent. The film hasn't aged to well in my opinion and the ending, although disturbing, is a bit anti climatic due to very poor effects and corny style use. But man, poor Carrie! What those bitch girls and *beep* mother did to her was tragic. Carrie had literally 1 happy moment in her life only to have it come crashing down on her (literally) 5 minutes later. "Carrie" is a very flawed film but is disturbing, sad, and messed up, the key points for a classic Stephen King horror!

A decent adaptation but it doesn't have the style and excitement of the DePalma-directed original which nabbed Oscar nominations for both Sissy Spacek and Laurie Piper as the daughter and mother respectively. Chloe Moretz is very talented and some of the scenes with Julianne Moore are well done but the supporting cast is totally forgettable; unlike the original which had John Travolta and Nancy Allen, amongst others. So, not a horrible film, but you may as well watch the original.

Hollywooded-up remake of the original Sissy Spacek's original!

A fair movie on its own, but as a remake, why bother? Only two reasons for such a remake: playing it safe and showing off modern special effects.
No surprises. The best part of the DVD was the telekinetic coffee shop in the extras section.

Ticket! I saw this at the movies
and I have this movie. It was
so cool. To see Carrie get
revenge on her mother and her
classmates! That is an awesome
special power to have!

Great horror movie from the 70's about a high school girl with telekinesis. Sissy Spacek is great in the lead role. Director Brian De Palma is actually quite a funny filmmaker, something many critics gloss over.

The original movie directed by Brian De Palma and starring Sissy Spacek. Contains the usual tongue in cheek humour of De Palma in this satirical look at teenage life in the 1970's- and I'm sure it still holds relevance for the current generation. Blows the remake out of the water in every way imaginable.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: 9/10 Contains scenes that could make people feel unpleasant and upsetting. The film has a very dark tone to the material that raises the intensity and could be frightening. Especially towards the end, the rage, Carrie shows during prom and Chamberlain is very frightening and may shock people.
