20th Century Fox Home Entertainment have revealed that they are planning to bring to Blu-ray director Brian De Palma's classic horror film Carrie (1976), starring Sissy Spacek, Piper Laurie and Amy Irving. The preliminary release date set by the studio is March 4th.
Carrie (Spacek) is a gawky, unloved teenager whose awakening sexuality is at odds with her puritanical mother's fanatical teachings. Physically abused at home and shunned at school, an unexpected Prom invitation seems to be Carrie's first chance at happiness. But when the Prom night ends in a vicious practical joke, Carrie's despair manifests itself in a fiery telekinetic revenge. Brian De Palma's breakthrough psycho-sexual horror yarn is adapted from a Stephen King novel.
Note: On May 4th, Sony Pictures will release theatrically Kimberly Peirce's remake of the classic film. You can see a trailer for it here.
Been waiting on a remaster before adding to my collection. Fingers crossed! Hopefully some bonus features will be included this time too. Hell, even porting the DVD extras would be an upgrade. Maybe a U.S. re-release too?
