A modest but effective shock-suspense drama about a pubescent girl, her evangelical mother and cruel schoolmates.

Brian De Palma transcends the pulpy horror feel by emphasising the awakening-sexuality metaphor, and using some glorious trickery.

It is sometimes funny in a puzzling kind of way, it is generally overwrought in an irritating kind of way, and once in a while it is inappropriately touching.

An absolutely spellbinding horror movie, with a shock at the end that's the best thing along those lines since the shark leaped aboard in Jaws.

The reason Carrie is still held in such high regard as a horror classic is very simple: it's all in the sheer directorial bravado. De Palma at the top of his game.

Unlike other examples of the horror genre, there are classic elements of tragedy that lend this gruesome tale a compelling edge.
