Title :- Carrie (1976)
Genres :- #Horror
Carrie White is the outsider of her class. She's a mousy girl, all of her classmates hate her, and her mother is a religious fanatic who walks around in a black cape. After she unexpectedly has her first period, she is teased by the girls more ruthlessly than before. The gym teacher punishes the girls that were involved and one of them, Sue Snell, feels sorry for what she did and asks her boyfriend to take Carrie to the prom instead of her. But another girl that has been banned from the prom, Chris Hargenson, isn't so forgiving and hatches an evil plan with her boyfriend that involves Carrie and a bucket full of pig's blood. But what none of the students realize is that Carrie has the power of telekinesis, the power to move things with your mind, and that when you make her angry, she transforms from an innocent girl to a rage-filled monster. And this is gonna be a prom no one will ever forget.

Well, this was fun.... for the most part! 😄 Ha Jung-woo plays a radio jockey who used to be a popular nightly news anchor now hosting a phone in radio show talking about issues suffered by the common public. He dismisses a caller when he goes off-topic on a call and when he can’t disconnect him, the caller tells him he has a bomb he’ll blow up, which sure enough blows up soon. Thinking he has an exclusive scoop and his one chance to get back in front of the camera, he decides to not alert the authorities and takes the caller live on air on an exclusive news broadcast. That’s when all hell breaks loose. The film is set entirely in the radio studio and for most part, it is a very tightly written thriller that is only slightly let down by its underwhelming final act. It will of course remind a few people of the Hollywood film Phone Booth, and while it does bear some similarities to that film, I found this to be a tighter thriller. That is, in no small parts, thanks to Ha Jung-woo who is on electric form here! The film rests on his shoulders entirely and he’s more than strong enough to carry it through. A thriller also needs the right music to set the mood and this film delivers. Recommended if you’re in the mood for something thrilling but doesn’t test you much.
