      The film that launched the books of Stephen Kin into fame and had a similar effect on director Brian De Palma’s career, Carrie is considered by many to be a classic horror film and a perfect example of high school hell.

      Telling the tale of poor Carrie White, object of ridicule

      at school and tormented by her zealot mother at home, who discovers her telekinetic powers and then unleashes them at the prom.

      Although different than the girl described in King’s novels, Sissy Spacek plays the part of Carrie perfectly. She is both shy and pretty, garnering much more of our sympathy ...

      • than condemnation. There are quite a few fans of the film who get vicarious thrills at her revenge on her past tormentors.

        I can’t be one of them, knowing it leads to Carrie’s destruction.

        Another thing I can’t understand with previous reviews on the film is why many viewers have a certain

        misunderstanding regarding Sue, played by Amy Irving. Many watchers believe that she was in on the joke. Her motives were kind, however, wanting to make up for a past sin committed against White. However, Sue finds out too late that the road to Hell, like high school, is often paved with good intentions.
