She never had a chance.
Scarred from birth by a psycho mother, mocked by all around her, Carrie White simply yearned for a little peace.
When she didn’t get it, something deep inside cracked, and the world burned, hate repaid with stone-cold vengeance.
Sissy Spacek, such a strong actress, is note-perfect as the gentle, fractured soul bedeviled by anger crashing down upon her.
When Carrie kills, it’s not with anger or malice, but with sadness – a deep, never-ending well of sadness.
She’s not a villain, but a victim.
But still one who will burn the world to the ground.
