Carrie (Sissy Spacek) is a tortured high school misfit with no confidence, no friends... and no idea about the extent of her secret powers of telekinesis.

  • 5 stars "One of the greatest horror films ever. De Palma delivers with his usual visual flourish, but he never lets the style overpower the emotional content. A really scary flick that also happens to be a heart wrenching tragedy, thanks mostly to the amazing performances of Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie. A must-see."
