With a script well measured in its effects and the right cast... the film entertains. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review
El Pais (Spain)
Carrie's climactic empowerment is all at once the tragedy and triumph of a young woman trapped between Biblical regression and a secular coming-out. Full Review
Little White Lies
[Sissy Spacek] plays it quite straight and she is wonderful, but De Palma has shrewdly made a camp movie designed to knock them dead in the drive-ins. Full Review
Gannett News Service
An exercise in high style that even the most unredeemably rational among moviegoers should find enormously enjoyable. Full Review
5 stars out of 5 -- [I]t's all in the sheer directorial bravado. De Palma is at the top of his game.
...The opening sequence is an uncanny tour de force...
Sight and Sound
[A] horror classic....The extraordinary cast includes John Travolta, Amy Irving, William Katt and Nancy Allen...
Wall Street Journal
Brian De Palma's commercial breakout, based on a novel by Stephen King, helped launch a whole slew of teen-based horror films, and Carrie the blood-spattered prom queen has taken her throne in the pantheon of modern American myth. High school girls played by Amy Irving (in her film debut), P.J. Soles, and Nancy Allen plot to avenge themselves on ostracized fellow student and budding telekinetic Carrie White (Sissy Spacek) after they get in trouble for pelting her with tampons. When they get popular boy Tommy Ross (William Katz) to be her date for the prom, the stage is set for some heart-rending cruelty and fiery retribution. De Palma expertly uses split screens, slow motion, color filters, and tracking shots to imbue the proceedings with a haunting, allegorical elegance. Piper Laurie plays Carrie's mentally ill, devoutly Christian mom; she's brilliant, as is Spacek. John Travolta has a memorable pre-SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER role as one of the girls' beer-guzzling boyfriends. There was finally a sequel in 1999, as well as a short-lived Broadway musical.
Carrie, a shy teenager with a fiercely religious and oppressive mother, struggles to come to terms with her emerging sexuality and extraordinary telekinetic powers. Just as she's beginning to enjoy a sudden change in her life, a cruel practical joke drives her to a monstrous act of revenge and destruction.
