  • Credit not given for "Intensity"

    I really enjoy everything she does. The one movie that I noticed as left off her credits was the movie "Intensity" based on the Dean Koontz book. She didn't have a huge role, woman in a vehicle who receives a note from the abductee in the camper and follows the nutcase's camper. A very memorable performance nevertheless. I definately enjoyed her in Twin Peaks and Dream A Little Dream. These two roles alone show her versatility and convincing portrayal of all characters she plays, from one extreme to the other. I would love to see her in something else and haven't since Cold Case.moreless

    While she hasn't done really much of anything for the past ten years, Piper Laurie is really a talented actress. In every role she really makes you believe that she actually is the character she's portraying. This sense of realism is what makes her really stand out above the masses of the rest of actresses today. My favorite movie of her's is the role of the mom in "Carrie."
