"The print and sound are crisp, the color horrifically true-to-life-and death." -Barbara Saltzman, Los Angeles Times

Brian De Palma's terrifying film is based on the shivery bestseller by Stephen King. Sissy Spacek became a star with her portrayal of Carrie, a young girl who uses her telekinetic powers to exact gruesome revenge on those who have hurt her. John Travolta, Piper Laurie, and Amy Irving also star. Both Criterion editions feature audio commentary by film expert Laurent Bouzereau (author of The De Palma Cut) and screenwriter Lawrence D. Cohen.

The Criterion CAV special edition also offers:

  • The original theatrical trailer
  • Publicity stills, posters, and lobby cards
  • A study of De Palma's filmmaking techniques
