This blood-soaked adaptation of Stephen King’s debut novel about a mercilessly teased— and telekinetic—high schooler’s brutal prom night revenge on her classmates is the one that started it all. In the title role, Sissy Spacek is heartbreaking, the authentic human center of a Grand Guignol fantasy filled with crazily elaborate camerawork and populated by crass monsters, including Piper Laurie as her religious freak mother; Nancy Allen and John Travolta as the nasty, bickering twits who orchestrate her public humiliation; and the always amazing P. J. Soles.

Carrie is screening as part of the series Written by Stephen King. Click here for more info.
