Carrie (3-Nov-1976)

Director: Brian De Palma

Writer: Lawrence D. Cohen

From novel: Carrie by Stephen King

Music: Pino Donaggio

Producer: Paul Monash

Keywords: Horror, Child Abuse, Telekinesis

Upon onset of her first menstruation, Carrie, a bullied and abused 17-year-old high school girl, gains telekinetic powers; these unexpected powers, barely under her control, combine with pent-up rage to exact bloody revenge. One of the few Stephen King novels to receive effective treatment on the screen. Received Oscar nominations for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress. Should not be watched on broadcast television, as certain critical scenes are invariably cut.
