Carrie – Brian De Palma Series

We continue De Palma December as we are joined by Ken Creamer, of Kens King Collection, to discuss the 1976 Sissy Spacek lead film, Carrie! We take a look back at this iconic horror film co-starring Piper Laurie, Amy Irving, John Travolta, Nancy Allen, William Katt, & P.J. Soles. We take a deep dive into the Stephen King story in our month long exploration of director Brian De Palma’s filmography. Carrie White (Spacek), a shy, friendless teenage girl who is sheltered by her domineering, religious mother (Laurie), unleashes her telekinetic powers after being humiliated by her classmates at her senior prom.
