About the Movie

Stephen King's Carrie White (Sissy Spacek) is a lonely, withdrawn high-school student who is the object of ridicule because of her drabness and because of the influence of her mother (Piper Laurie)--a religious zealot who has kept her in the dark about all things feminine. When Carrie experiences her first period in the gym shower, she is teased and humiliated. Threatened with expulsion from the upcoming prom, the girls' ringleader (Amy Irving) devises a plan: Amy's boyfriend (William Katt) will pretend to court Carrie and then Carrie will be elected Prom Queen. At the prom, Amy and her cohorts (including John Travolta) drop a rigged bucket of pig's blood on Carrie. Carrie's kinetic powers are now unleashed in one of the screen's most-celebrated depictions of merciless and unstoppable fury.

Fresh: A voluptuously shot horror movie. – Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune, Oct 6, 2013

I love this movie. Thank you iTunes for finally getting this movie!


70's horror had all of the trademark elements present here: gritty film, superb acting, and intriguing storyline. as many times as i have seen this film, it always feels fresh. sissy spacek is amazing (her performance here earned her an oscar nomination) and piper laurie is unreal (also received and oscar nod). iconic in many respects, this is a film (regardless of genre) not to be missed.
