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.
