    My Movie Rankings

    A nice showcase for early film techniques, The Life And Passion Of Jesus Christ stands as an impressive feat of filmmaking for its time giving audiences a first example of long term storytelling in movies. Despite this, as is the case with most films of this era, it lacks some entertainment value and the result is ultimately an average one.

    Sissy Spacek has to have some of the scariest eyes in movie history. Terrific performance with the impending sense dread building towards the horrorfying climax. Overall a clear step above the 2013 version and a chilling scary movie in it's own right, Carrie is worth all the praise.
