Brian De Palma’s chilling 1976 film Carrie kicks off a series of four films we’ll be presenting in October adapted by the works of the proclaimed Master of Horror Stephen King! Each King adaptation will screen Wednesday and Thursday night, with a weekend encore – full schedule below!
Sensitive and withdrawn teen Carrie White (Oscar-nominee Sissy Spacek) faces brutal bullying from her classmates, only to come home to more abuse from her fanatically pious mother Margaret (Oscar-nominee Piper Laurie, in a nightmare-inducing performance). When strange occurrences start happening around Carrie, she begins to suspect that she the supernatural power of telekinesis – the ability to move things by will alone. Invited to the prom by the empathetic Tommy Ross (William Katt), Carrie begins to find her own voice and let her guard down – but chaos ensues when her bullies stage a cruel prank…
That rarest of supernatural horror films met with almost universal critical acclaim, including a National Society of Film Critics Award for Best Actress for Sissy Spacek, Carrie is a film classic onto itself, and a must for lovers of goosebump-raising vintage horror.
