Carrie

Carrie (1976)

Directed by: Brian DePalma
Starring: Sissy Spacek, Piper Laurie, Amy Irving, William Katt, Nancy Allen, John Travolta

Synopsis: A young teenage girl wreaks telekinetic vengeance on her high school tormentors and religious-nut mother.



Carrie aka from zero to pissed off in 2.5 seconds. Starts off a little weird, but it's okay I guess, because there are a lot off things that at some point don't make sense. For instance the ending itself, it's like, wait what? Story itself, I'm feeling it, I really am. It's great. Highschoolers, supernatural, your freaky religious mother who is a complete psycho and the senior prom. Oh yes, the prom. The infamous senior prom from Carrie. It truly is what makes this movie so great. (I wont spoil it if you don't what happens) And then your psycho mom. Having your first periods is a bad thing? Oh damn. My (girl)friend asked me where do these people come from. My answer: from the church. One last detail, the clothing is so retro that you will question Travoltas haircut and the girls gym pants. Final verdict?? A classical horror flick from the seventies, rock it!
