This 1976 thriller, about a high school outcast (Sissy Spacek) who uses her telekinetic powers to massacre the graduating class, contains a number of interesting ideas. But as with most of his films, De Palma can't keep track of them.
*Angry Angry Angry*Argh this critic appears to be making a living out of dismissing any decent film, granted he's just as bad as Vincent Canby or Armound White!

Exactly, Dave Kehr sucks, so does Jon Rosenbaum.

Yes. Dave Kehr IS a shmuck AND looks like a woman (but nevermind that). This is the umpteenth review I've read by him that EVERYONE else likes but him. I think he's just trying to raise some hackles. Or he despertely needs attention. What a shmuck.

Dave you are so wrong. this discounts any review you can ever make on any film. Pay the price

Hey to Dave i know every one is entitled to their opinion.....In my opinion you are a complete idiot.
Your'e review tells the story of a psychopath....And it's the complete opposite.
In your'e synopsis u never mentioned the victim of mental torture....Which the film is actually about. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to argue this point!....Thanks

Carrie is as deep as Revenge of the Nerds. Great source material, terrible adaptation ? Stephen King must be used to it by now.

What the heck has he been smoking? This one of the greatest thriller of all times. I think he's just trying to get attention from everyone else and I totally agree with Tom B. when he said that here we have a frustrated movie director
