Basically, Carrie, a normal girl. Except she has tele- I don't know. That thing where you move shit with your mind (it's never explained why she has it, you just kind of role with it). experiences her first period as she showers with other girls after gym class (not as sexy as you might think).
Unaware of what is happening to her, Carrie panics and pleads for help. The other girls, rather trying too comfort like normal human beings, begin laughing and bullying her.
Cause, you know, mental breakdowns are hilarious.
The gym teacher breaks up the commotion and attempts to console Carrie, a light bulb mysteriously breaking as Carrie reaches the height of her panic.
Home isn't much better.
Carrie is regularly abused by her fanatically religious mother, Margaret (who's just fucking "nuts", that's all) who rants about menstruation being the result of sinful thoughts. You know, like ALL periods I guess.
Carrie is locked in a small closet and forced to pray for forgiveness by "mother of the year" Maragaret.
When she is finally allowed to return to her room, Carrie gazes into her reflection, causing the mirror to shatter.
Carrie’s classmate Sue (Amy Irving) feels guilty, so she arranges for her boyfriend, handsome and popular Tommy (William Katt), to ask Carrie to the prom. Reluctant at first, Carrie accepts after encouragement from Miss Collins. Another classmate, Chris (only there too be a fucking bitch, not other character traits), skips her detention for bullying Carrie, so she is banned from the prom.
Margaret discovers Carrie's prom plans and attempts to abuse her again.. Cause, you know.
Can't have our kids HAPPY!. That's against God's wishes!
Having researched her telekinesis, Carrie asserts her power and stands up to her mother.
Margaret responds by accusing Carrie of being a satanic witch..
Margaret, I swear, you give christians a bad name.
At the prom, Carrie finds acceptance among her peers and shares a kiss with Tommy. Chris' bubbly best friend Norma (P.J. Soles) rigs the election and Carrie is crowned Prom Queen.
Carrie’s joy is cut short by the famish scene, the one spoofed in shit like Pony Mov.
Chris pulls a rope to dump the pigs' blood on her. Chris and Billy escape through a back door, while the bucket falls on Tommy's head, knocking him unconscious.
The blood-soaked Carrie hallucinates that everyone in the gymnasium is laughing at her and soon, FREAKS THE FUCK OUT.
Locking everyone in the gym, guilty and innocent alike.
A high-pressure water hose assaults many people, several are crushed, the principal is electrocuted, and Miss Collins is crushed to death.
As the gym catches fire, Carrie calmly walks out and locks the remaining students inside. Chris and Billy attempt to run over Carrie as she walks home, but Carrie causes their car to flip and explode, killing Chris (not that anyone was probably sad).
At home Carrie is comforted by her mother, yeah, ACTUALLY comforted.
But shit gets real when Margaret reveals her guilt about giving birth to Carrie, a product of marital rape. As they pray together, Margaret (like most mothers would) stabs her daughter in the back and pursues her through the house. Defending herself, Carrie causes kitchen utensils to fly through the air and crucify Margaret. Distraught over her mother's death, Carrie loses control of her powers as the house crumbles and burns down around her.
Sometime after Carrie’s death, Sue, the sole survivor of the prom massacre, dreams of laying flowers on the charred remains of Carrie's home. As a bloody arm reaches from the rubble and grabs her, Sue wakes up screaming.
Guess there this wasn't much of an review.
But still.. This movie is so.. Well.. Frankly a bit uncomfortable.. So guess that means it's scary..
So.. Yeah.. It's good..
