So its approaching Halloween. I've decided to start reviewing my most scary movies beginning with this classic Stephen King adaptation. I remember watching this for the first time, and though it's clearly an old film - 1976 can you believe, the scares still shock. The portrayal by Sissy Spacek of a young girl - Carrie - growing up with no-one to tell her about life as a woman is so convincing. You feel the emotions with her, and its painful at times and despite knowing all is not going to end well you cant help rooting for a different outcome for her. A young John Travolta here is not the hero of the piece. They say revenge is sweet. There is nothing sweet about the revenge played out here. Well worth a watch this October - rarely do books adapt to screen as well as here. Be prepared to jump!! 9 out of 10 for this one.
