The story of a butt-of-all-jokes high-school teenager, Carrie is a revenge-of-the-nerds tale, made all the more eloquent by its binary oppositions of light and shade, gothic imagery and, thanks to Lawrence D. Cohen's script, intricate characterisation.

Unlike other examples of the horror genre, there are classic elements of tragedy that lend this gruesome tale a compelling edge.

There is little suspense or dramatic tension; everything plays out like bad melodrama or cheap exploitation.

It's high time for the young generation of filmgoers to stop throwing their money [away] and see what a real horror movie is.

It's a gripping and rousing perusal of our human souls -- an opportunity to become aware of our dark sides and meet them head on.
