Short and Simple Review by WubsTheFadger For a film that was released in 1997, it has held up extremely well. The story is simple but has some very complex foreshadowing and a vast amount of symbols. The ending is shocking and left me stunned. The acting is the one thing that is outdated. John Travolta, Piper Laurie, and Betty Buckley are e few of the actors that performed in an outdated fashion. William Katt performs very well though. Sissy Spacek is the best part about the entire film. Her character has been tormented with hatred and animosity for no apparent reason and we can clearly see that in her performance. Spacek does her character justice and shows us that old films can be great. The music is another high point for this film. The pacing is very slow in the beginning and in the middle but it picks up speed towards the third act. Pros: Simple yet complex story riddled with foreshadowing and symbols, William Katt's performance, great use of music, amazing ending, Sissy Spacek's performance, and seeing Sissy Spacek naked Cons: A lot of outdated acting and very slow pacing in the beginning and in the middle Overall Rating: 8.4

Another great Stephen King movie

I thought that I knew exactly how this movie ended, but it turns out I was wrong. I'm actually glad of it so the ending wasn't quite spoiled for me. Everyone remembers the ending of the film or rather one of the last scenes in the movie. This is a great movie throughout the entire running time. Even in the first scenes, we see Carrie struggle with puberty. We're not sure how many people die in the end. The last scene is truly haunting. The best performance might be Carrie's mother. From a certain point of view, her reaction to her daughter's telekinesis could be considered realistic given her personality. I heard that the actress who played her mother thought that she was in a comedy. She even holds that view up to this day. You feel sorry for Carrie and the few people who sincerely care about her. This is a great horror film. ***1/2

Or at least 9.5

This version of Carrie is one of my favorite adaptations, no one of my favorite movies. I'm not a fan of horror or Stephen King but I read Carrie a long time ago and was blown away (I actually listened to Carrie on audiobook and it was narrated by Sissy Spacek). Speaking of Sissy Spacek, can anyone top her as the telekinetic outcast? (Maybe Angela Bettis) Sissy just oozes Shyness and Loneliness. I just want to hug her all throughout. When she smiles after winning Prom-Queen I just could not help smiling with her. Piper Laurie is really over the top as the mother, but the director asked her to be that way so much she was convinced that she was starring in a dark comedy. The Remakes are clearly based on this one while also claiming to be more faithful.
