This is the first movie rendition of Stephen King’s first published novel, Carrie. It was done in 1976, but since this movie doesn’t really require much in the way of effects, it comes off quite well.
Anyway, it’s definitely a horror film, as its based on a horror novel. Sissy Spacek does well as the title role, she makes a very believable Carrie. There’s also a young John Travolta here as well.
There’s not much to say here, as it’s a classic horror novel made into a classic horror movie.
