Carrie ★★★★½

Really unsettling, the shocking tone shifts between, not necessarily normal, but relatively straightforward daytime school scenes, and the dark, unpleasant, really quite uncomfortable scenes is really effective and shocking. I wouldn't really say Carrie is all that scary beyond the ending scare, but it is still incredibly disturbing and kind of hard to watch. Despite, or perhaps because of this, I found myself unable to look away. The film kind of drags in the middle, and it does lack the scale and therefore some of the impact of it's source material, but this is certainly quite a spectacular film.
