Tribute Sissy Spacek


Brian De Palma
USA 1976
98 min

Carrie White, the teenage daughter of a religious fanatic, has her first menstrual period in the school locker-room shower and is so sexually ignorant that she thinks she is bleeding to death. The rest of the girls cruelly taunt her and pelt her with tampons before they are caught by a teacher and punished. Afterwards two of the girls plan to make it up to Carrie each in their own way: Sue Snell talks her boyfriend Tommy Ross into inviting Carrie to the senior prom; the other, Chris Hargenson, rigs it so that
Carrie is elected prom queen and then sets a bucket of pigs blood above the stage to drench her at the moment of her crowning. But they have reckoned without Carries telekinetic powers which she uses to exact a sudden and horrible revenge.
