The original and best, presented at Golden Age in a gorgeous 2K digital restoration. Carrie (Sissy Spacek) is a meek 17-year-old girl, bullied by the extroverts that surround her in class and even moreso at home by her fanatically religious mother Margaret (Piper Laurie). When she gets her first period in the school locker room and is teased mercilessly by her peers, something telekinetic is unleashed from within. And when she's involved in a mean trick at school prom, there's no telling what her newfound power might do.
Why You Should See This Film
The opening locker room scene alone is unbeatably iconic. Artfully directed by Brian De Palma and based on the seminal novel by Stephen King, Carrie is nothing short of a modern horror classic, worthy of being referenced across pop culture for all time. Now go to your closet and pray!
