Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Carrie

Carrie White is the girl no one likes and everybody makes fun of. One day, she menstruates for the first time in the shower and her classmates throw Tampaxes at her, screaming "Plug it up!"

The review of this Movie prepared by marcus

The tragic life of high school student Carrie White comes to a head when she has her first period in gym class and is humiliated by her peers. Her mother doesn't make life much easier for Carrie when she locks her in a closet for hours. Everybody treats Carrie like a rag mop, but what they don't know is that she has telekinetic abilities that are growing stronger every day.
The review of this Movie prepared by Timothy Patrick Kirby

Carrie is a teenager constantly mocked by her colleagues and mistreated by her mother, a religion fanatic, psycothic and cruel. Things seem to change when she finds out she has telekinetic powers and when schooljock Tommy Ross invites her to the prom. At the prom, after a moment of happiness, a cruel prank will lead Carrie into a tragic massacre towards her opponnents and her mother. A 70's teen horror cult film, still very effective nowadays, directed by Brian de Palma
