    "I can never forget this movie. It's not explicitly violent or gory but it's still terrifying in its own way. It does have demonic themes though so you might not want to watch it late at night, alone in your room like I did, because I guarantee you won't be able to sleep"

    "Hands down one of the best movies I've ever watched. Scorsese with de Niro was a powerhouse pair. This is the first time I found out that it was banned. So the character wanted to kill a politician! What's the big idea? They banned it because of that? WJHAT"

    "I totaly get why they'd want to ban this movie. It's insane. The characters in the movie commit crime left and right. Then again I also get why it's still a cult classic despite all the violence."

    "Carrie is a landmark novel created by Stephen King. The first film adaptation is very jarring to most people, enough to cause sheer aversion."
