Brian De Palma, Carrie (film still), 1976. 98 min., colour, sound.
Directed by Brian De Palma
Based on Stephen King's tale of a bullied girl taking revenge, Carrie has become a pervasive, pop-culture touchstone for anyone who's ever wanted to get even. 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 mother and classmates go too far, the once-shy teen becomes a vengeance-seeking powerhouse who, with the help of her "special gift," creates an unforgettable prom night in a famed cinematic frenzy of blood, fire and brimstone.
