Brian De Palma’s 1976 film adaptation of Stephen King’s Carrie is hailed as one of the great horror films of its era, one that stunned critics and has since become one of the household names of the genre. Sissy Spacek’s portrayal of the titular character earned her an Academy Award nod for Best Actress, an award she won from the National Society of Film Critics.
Now, that horror is coming to home video in a deluxe 40th anniversary edition from Scream! Factory and it’s a doozy! Including a 4k scan from the original negative, three hours of interviews and featurettes, and a ton of additional features, this is the definitive edition of King’s masterpiece.
At the center of the terror is Carrie (Spacek), a high school loner with no confidence, no friends… and no idea about the extent of her secret powers of telekinesis. But when her psychotic mother and sadistic classmates finally go too far, the once-shy teen becomes an unrestrained, vengeance-seeking powerhouse who, with the help of her “special gift,” causes all hell to break loose in a famed cinematic frenzy of blood, fire and brimstone!
Carrie will be released on October 11th.
