In honor of Stephen King’s 70th birthday, actress flashes back on the making of the 1976 adaptation
The Angela Bettis-starring Carrie, the made-for-television adaptation of Stephen King’s novel, is coming to Blu-ray courtesy of Scream Factory. The company revealed the 2002 film will be paired with The Rage: Carrie II (1999) next Spring. The latter is a direct sequel to Brian De Palma’s film and finds Amy Irving returning.
Scream Factory told fans via Facebook…
“Immersive” is becoming the key word in a lot of cool haunted attractions and it’s going to apply to Carrie: The Musical which is coming to Los Angeles’ La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts (14900 La Mirada Blvd.). After a false start last year, the production is finally going to kick off on March 12th and it sounds like a blast.
The official opening is set for March 18th.
La Mirada Theatre will be completely transformed into Ewan High School, putting audiences, for the first time ever, at the center of the action in this bold and thrilling twist on the now-classic musical.
Carrie arrives on DVD and Blu-ray today, featuring over an hour’s-worth of bonus content, including a “shocking alternate ending.” What’s that ending? Well, my copy arrived today and before I could crack it open, I had to see if this other conclusion was on the web. Guess what? It was. Ah, you’ve done me good, Internet.
Obviously, this is all spoiler territory from here on out.
