About Carrie

Year Released:
Drama, Horror

The second half of City Light's Halloween double feature comes from the Stephen King novel of the same name. In a career-making performance, a young Sissy Spacek stars as Carrie White, a social outcast at her high school who finds no respite in the abusive hands of her mentally and spiritually unstable mother, played with go-for-broke fury by Piper Laurie. Unhinged by the humiliation she faces at school, Carrie unleashes her psychic powers in fits of destruction. Brian DePalma directs with the visual kineticism that has defined his career, most ably demonstrated in the bloody good denouement scene at the high school prom. (35mm)
