My quick rating - 8,1/10. I doubt I need to focus on the story since not only has this been redone, but has been played countless times everywhere. Sum up, troubled teen gets made fun of and is pushed to the brink of revenge after a terrible act of bloody riducle (pigs blood that is). This story works for a couple simple reasons: Sissy Spacek is phenomenal in her portrayal of Carrie White, the telekinetic teen that lives a sheltered life by her fanatic religious (yes, of course, there is that religion thing again) mother. The bit players that go along with this act their parts extremely well including a young William Katt (Greatest American Hero, House) and John Travolta. Each youth in this movie plays a role in the prank to be played on Carrie, and ends up paying for it. It might be a slow burn to unleash her fury, but that does make it all the more shocking when she does. The flick doesn't need to rely on gore and jump scares to grab your attention but uses good storytelling to make you root for Carrie and get behind her. Scenes are directed to perfection by De Palma, exceptionally done from start to finish and a must see for any movie buff along with fans of horror. Top it off with one of the more famous scenes ever in film and you are left with a movie that will stick with you long after the credits roll.
