Are you looking for a heart-stopping horror movie to watch? Look no further than Brian De Palma’s classic, Carrie. Based on the Stephen King novel of the same name, the 1976 film is a riveting story about a teenage girl who discovers she has telekinetic powers.
The plot revolves around the title character, Carrie White (Sissy Spacek) and her psychological and physical journeys, as she struggles to navigate through an oppressive society full of bullies at school and an overbearing, religious mother at home. In the face of mounting pressure from both inside and out, Carrie’s powers begin to manifest, culminating in a shocking final act that will leave you breathless.
When it comes to performances, Carrie is full of great work from its talented cast. Spacek brings depth to her character and truly makes you feel for Carrie, while Piper Laurie provides an excellent villainous turn as her mother. Also Tony-award winning actress Betty Buckley shines in her performance as their gym teacher and John Travolta makes a brief but effective appearance as one of the school bullies.
What makes Carrie so incredibly effective as a horror movie is its unyielding sense of dread and its attention to atmosphere rather than relying solely on jump scares and gore. After forty years it still stands as one of horror classics and with its recent remake staying true to its source material, it is definitely worth giving it another look. So why not go ahead and get tickets for a movie night? You won’t regret it!
