Notes de l'éditeur

  • 13,000 or 30,000 hardback copies
    1 million paperback copies
  • 13,000 or 30,000 hardback copies
    1 million paperback copies
  • “I read the book. It was suggested to me by a writer friend of mine. A writer friend of his, Stephen King, had written it. I guess this was almost two years ago [circa 1975]. I liked it a lot and proceeded to call my agent to find out who owned it. I found out that nobody had bought it yet. A lot of studios were considering it, so I called around to some of the people I knew and said it was a terrific book and I'm very interested in doing it. Then nothing happened for, I guess, six months”
  • Not a lot of other credits
    Worked on other Stephen King Adaptations later — IT miniseries, Tommyknockers, etc
  • Sissy Spacek, Piper Laurie, Amy Irving, William Katt, Nancy Allen, John Travolta, Betty Buckley (remember her)
    “Determined to land the leading role, Spacek backed out of a television commercial she was scheduled to film, rubbed Vaseline into her hair, didn't bother to wash her face, and arrived for her screen test clad in a sailor dress which her mother had made her in the seventh grade, with the hem cut off, and was given the part.”
  • According to VULTURE, CARRIE (1976) is ranked as the second best Stephen King film, after THE SHINING (1980). This adaptation was released when horror was reaching pinnacle success, since the industry was releasing scary movies that would later become popular classics. CARRIE arrived on the heels of ROSEMARY'S BABY, which became a commercial favorite in 1968, as well as THE EXORCIST, which changed the perception of horror forever. Thanks to these films, Hollywood knew that they had something special when they read CARRIE for the first time,

    Directed by Brian De Palma, this adaptation captured Carrie's struggle to accept her own sexuality, while conveying the disquieting mood of the novel. Although the book followed a series of narratives, De Palma concentrated on Carrie's experience throughout the movie. He managed to humanize the antagonist of this story, illustrating the complexities of these characters in a compelling way.

    De Palma also highlights Margaret's corrupt relationship with her religion as well. She decorates her family's house with images of death, rather than displaying her "benevolent faith" in Christianity.

    $33.8 million against its $1.8 million budget. It received two nominations at the 49th Academy Awards: Best Actress (for Spacek) and Best Supporting Actress (for Laurie).
    One of few horror movies to receive Academy Award nominations
    Best adaptation of the novel
    One of the best horror movies of all time

  • “The MCC directors said: "MCC, the authors, and the director achieved what we all set out to do – to rescue Carrie from oblivion and to give her new life. Plans are under way to preserve this production for Lincoln Center Library for the Performing Arts, so it may live on in the memories of the thousands of theatergoers who saw and loved it."
