Based on the debut novel of master of horror Stephen King, the film tells the story of Carrie White (Sissy Spacek), a teenager, and social outcast, whose overbearing and religiously fanatical mother, terrorises her daughter into following a sheltered life. Following a humiliating incident at high school, Carrie is left further victimised by both her bullying classmates and her mother. Feeling guilty about this incident, Carrie’s classmate Sue (Amy Irving) arranges for her boyfriend to take Carrie to the prom, but Chris (Nancy Allen), the lead bully, has other abusive plans for Carrie. What Chris and all the others don’t know is that Carrie is gifted… with unbly horrific and deadly powers…

Soles (Halloween, Rock n’ Roll high School) and Michael Talbott (First Blood). The film also includes John Travolta in one of his earliest roles!
