Scream Factory to Release Brian De Palma’s CARRIE on Blu-ray




Scream Factory to release King/De Palma thriller on Blu-ray.

We worship at the altar of American stylist Brian De Palma (read our look at 8 of his greatest murders!), the king of the glossy American thriller and certainly, we know that one of his best films is his breakthrough movie, the 1976 adaptation of Stephen King’s CARRIE. The film stars Sissy Spacek as telekinetic teen Carrie White whose high school humiliations – and the ritualistic abuse at the hands of her deranged holy rolling mother (Piper Laurie) – push he well past the edge. And the prom burns…

Now, further mining the MGM film library vaults, Scream Factory have announced their intentions to release a stunning new 2-disc Collector’s Edition Blu-ray which includes a brand new 4K scan of the film and nearly 3 hours of bonus material.

The set will hit streets on October 11, 2016.
