70s Rewind: Brian De Palma's CARRIE, In Pictures And Posters

Managing Editor; Dallas, Texas (@peteramartin)

A touchstone for modern horror, Brian De Palma's Carrie remains a brutal and brutish look at the ultimate outsider: a teenage girl who can move things with her mind.

Stephen King's first published novel, released in April 1974, reportedly sold 13,000 copies. The paperback edition, arriving one year later, sold more than a million copies, and caught the attention of De Palma. Lawrence D. Cohen is credited with the screenplay, which follows the spine of the novel. Among the minor changes: Ewen High School becomes Bates High School.

70s Rewind is a column about the writer's favorite movie decade.
