Brian De Palma’s CARRIE is an absolutely spellbinding horror movie, with a shock at the end that’s the best thing along those lines since the shark leaped aboard in JAWS. The scariest horror stories are like this. They develop their horrors out of the people they observe. That happens here, too. Does it ever.
Director Brian De Palma may be making a career out of emulating Alfred Hitchcock, but it can’t be denied that, with each new movie, he comes closer to mastering Hitchcock’s trademark of teasing suspense and tongue-in-cheek horror.
