Masterpiece of horror cinema that we reinterpret as the story of a modern witch. Carrie White (Sissy Spacek) is a shy teenager who doesn't make friends easily. Her closed nature is partly due to the upbringing that her psychotic and ultra-religious mother Margaret (Piper Laurie) has given her. One unexpected day, Carrie has her first period in the school showers after a gym class, reacting in a totally neurotic way not knowing what is happening to her, and provoking the ridicule of her sadistic classmates, who upon contemplating the situation will plot a plan to play a practical joke on her during the prom. But they ignore something very important about Carrie that, if they knew it, would make them avoid putting her in a bad mood at all costs.
