Dir. Brian De Palma. U.S., 1976, 98 mins. With Sissy Spacek, Piper Laurie, Nancy Allen, John Travolta. Brian De Palma’s masterful adaptation of Stephen King’s best-selling debut novel is one of the cinema’s greatest supernatural chillers. A wildly stylish and intensely emotional throat-grabber, Carrie stars a brilliant Spacek (in an Oscar-nominated role) as a mercilessly teased—and telekinetic—high schooler who exacts outsized revenge on her peers at the prom. De Palma’s extraordinary filmmaking skills are on full display throughout, and especially at the tour de force climax. Rated: R
