NEWLY ADAPTED FOR THE BIG SCREEN, STARRING CHLOE GRACE MORETZ AND JULIANNE MOORE. COMING TO MOVIE THEATERS EVERYWHERE OCTOBER 2013.
Stephen King's legendary debut novel about a teenage outcast and the revenge she enacts on her classmates.
Carrie White may have been unfashionable and unpopular, but she had a gift. Carrie could make things move by concentrating on them. A candle would fall. A door would lock. This was her power and her sin. Then, an act of kindness, as spontaneous as the vicious taunts of her classmates, offered Carrie a chance to be normal and go to her senior prom. But another act--of ferocious cruelty--turned her gift into a weapon of horror and destruction that her classmates would never forget
With the publication of Carrie in 1974, King began his prolific and enduring presence on the American fiction scene. Two years later, with Sissy Spacek in the title role, director Brian de Palma brought the novel to indelible life onscreen. Both versions are now considered modern horror classics. Carrie White is an awkward and unpopular high school teenager, bullied and beleaguered from all sides, who uses her burgeoning telekinetic powers to wreak vengeance on all who have teased or injured her. In her reading, Spacek reinhabits and reprises her film role as Carrie and impeccably voices all other characters as well. Not to be missed.—Kristen L. Smith, Loras Coll.
