Time For A Halloween Horror Classic!

On this 30th day of “Shocktober”, I want to share the second greatest horror film ever made.

One of the greatest films of all time began as a Stephen King novel – his first novel in fact, and still the greatest film ever made from one of his books!

Carrie-best horror film

Classic “Carrie!”

In 1976, Director Brian DePalma took a very young cast – including Sissy Spacek, John Travolta and Nancy Allen – and made a classic film that will stand the test of time:

It’s not just a great horror film – it’s a great movie – classic cinema from a master filmmaker – let’s look first at the trailer for “Carrie”:

“Carrie” is a master class in filmmaking. I mean, how can you top this opening credits sequence, when Carrie takes a shower after gym class and discovers an unknown horror…

  1. Carrie is a classic from De Palma, but the remake is simply awful. This original is the only one to watch.
    The book is a great read too.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I watched this film at Film Society at my school with my friend Jenny Feakes. I then dropped her home (up a long unmade road) and drove back to my house. I sat in my car for about an hour getting the courage to exit, lock and get into my house. I was infact petrified. I loved the film and I hate horror films

    • Thanks for your comment! “Carrie” is one of my favorite films: beautifully directed, an incredible cast all the way down the line, and as much of an emotional story as a horrific one – and for me, horror that is grounded in real emotion is what makes a film really scary!

      • I agree. And it is interesting. I tend not to watch horror but if I think of the films that are the exceptions, they all have emotion running through them.
