In this chilling adaptation of Stephen King’s horror novel, withdrawn and sensitive teen Carrie White (Sissy Spacek) faces taunting from classmates at school and abuse from her fanatically pious mother (Piper Laurie) at home. When strange occurrences start happening around Carrie, she begins to suspect that she has supernatural powers. Invited to the prom by the empathetic Tommy Ross (William Katt), Carrie tries to let her guard down, but things eventually take a dark and violent turn.
Carrie is part of our FACE/OFF Series featuring films of John Travolta & Nicholas Cage each Tuesday night, through May 3rd’s screening of FACE/OFF.
Carrie was one of Travolta’s early film appearances and quickly led to his roles in Saturday Night Fever (1977) and Grease (1978).
