The first time I saw Carrie was when I was a senior in high school and I couldn’t help but hurt for her.
She’s a high school senior who’s bullied by her classmates and abused by her psychotic and religious fanatic mother. It seems that Carrie can never get away from the drama and she longs for the things that everyone else seems to come by so easily.
One thing she does have that her classmates don’t is telekinetic powers- powers that she uses as a powerful weapon at the end of the movie. And when I got to see her pour out her wrath upon the people who treated her so badly, I was cheering her on inside and find myself secretly wishing that I too had those powers.
I think we all did if we ever saw the movie.
“Carrie” was Stephen King’s first published book that soared to the top of the best seller list, then became a movie in the 70’s. It’s an awesome movie for Halloween. If you haven’t seen it, you should.

This was rather good, I did not read the book or see the film. I would be on Carrie’s side amazing how she got back at those who harmed her.
Oh yes! I definitely love the ending! Bullies get the worst comeuppance possible! 😊
Yes th end was great.
I read the book a long time ago, but I haven’t seen the movie. I don’t remember the details, but I remember having the same reaction you’re describing.
The book is awesome! The movie is great too! You should see it! I remember thinking in my head when I saw it years ago, “Burn them all alive!”
My thinking was a bit over the top, but I was in high school and being bullied when I saw it and I wanted her to bury them all.
Cherie, Happy 🎃 !
It’s one of my dad’s favourites. We watched it together many times.
This movie was so sad! I cried like a baby when I watched it.
It was sad. I cried for her too. It was like she never had a chance.
