Based on the best-selling Stephen King novel, Carrie catches the mind, shakes it and refuses to let it go. Starring Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie, John Travolta and Amy Irving, this ultimate revenge fantasy is one of the all-time great horror classics! At the center of the terror is Carrie, a tortured high-school misfit with no confidence, no friends...and no idea about the extent of her secret powers of telekinesis. But when her psychotic mother and sadistic classmates finally go too far, the once-shy teen becomes an unrestrained, vengeance-seeking powerhouse who, with the help of her "special gift," causes all hell to break loose in a famed cinematic frenzy of blood, fire and brimstone!
