Carrie (1976)

Our review of the first adaptation of a Stephen King novel, based on his first published book. Directed by Brian De Palma and starring a bunch of people who would go on to be more famous than the bunch of already-famous people who are their co-stars, it’s even better than you remember it. And it’s certainly better than any other film with the name “Carrie” attached to it (as of this writing).

  1. What, no Greatest American Hero references? Worst. Review. Ever

    Just kidding man. Great review as always. I still need to go out and watch this film (my parents never had many horror movies in the house and I’ve been playing catch-up on horror cinema most of my adult life). Thanks for selling this movie to me better than any ad or shots of prom devastation ever has.

    Also regarding The Rage: I think we need to figure out name a trope over this kind of phenomenon of making sequels to films that left absolutely no room for a sequel. My working title “The Highlander 2 Principle” but I’m open to suggestions.

    1. The sensation you’re feeling…is the Quickening…

      Except, no. You know what we should name it after? Jaws 2.
