Brian De Palma’s film, based on the novel by Stephen King,  stars a plethora of stars-to-be: Sissy Spacek,  Amy Irving, William Katt, and John Travolta, as well as established actress Piper Laurie. It is the story of a socially outcast teenage girl named Carrie White who discovers she possesses latent psionic  power which seems to flare up when she becomes angry or otherwise distressed. Carrie’s powers become apparent after her humiliation by her peers, teachers, and abusive mother, eventually resulting in tragedy. It was the first of several Stephen King novels to be made into movies for screen and TV.

The film was a major success for United Artists, grossing $33.8 million at the U.S. box office, on a budget of $1.8 million. It received a mostly positive response from critics. The film spawned a failed sequel The Rage: Carrie 2 and a fairly well-received 2002 remake of the same name. As of June 2012, another remake starring Chloë Grace Moretz as Carrie is in production. During a survey taken in October 2008, it was revealed that Carrie was considered one of the most popular movies teens watched on Halloween.

Spacek and Laurie were nominated for Academy Award for Best Actress and for Best Supporting Actress, respectively.

1 hr., 38 min.
