Stephen King's horror classic will be getting a Blu-ray makeover in October.
In an early announcement to retailers, Scream Factory will be releasing 'Carrie: 40th Anniversary Collector's Edition' on Blu-ray on October 11.
Based on the best-selling Stephen King novel, this "absolutely spellbinding horror movie" (Roger Ebert) has become a pervasive, pop-culture touchstone for anyone who's ever wanted to get even. Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie deliver Oscar-nominated performances and John Travolta and Amy Irving are terrific in this ultimate revenge fantasy that has become one of the all-time great horror classics, and is now, finally, offered as a definitive, two-disc Collector's Edition Blu-ray!
At the center of the terror is Carrie (Spacek), a high school loner with no confidence, no friends... and no idea about the extent of her secret powers of telekinesis. But when her psychotic mother and sadistic classmates finally go too far, the once-shy teen becomes an unrestrained, vengeance-seeking powerhouse who, with the help of her "special gift," causes all hell to break loose in a famed cinematic frenzy of blood, fire and brimstone!
The Blu-ray will feature a NEW 4K scan of the original camera negative (OCN) and supplements will include: NEW interviews with writer Laurence D. Cohen, editor Paul Hirsch, actors Piper Laurie, P.J. Soles, Nancy Allen, Betty Buckley, William Katt, Edie McClurg, casting director Harriet B. Helberg and director of photography Mario Tosi; NEW Horror's Hallowed Grounds – Revisiting The Film's Original Locations; Acting Carrie - Interviews With Actors Sissy Spacek, Amy Irving, Betty Buckley, Nancy Allen, William Katt, Piper Laurie, Priscilla Pointer and P.J. Soles And Art Director Jack Fisk And Director Brian De Palma; Visualizing Carrie - Interviews With Brian De Palma, Jack Fisk, Lawrence D. Cohen, Paul Hirsch; A Look At "Carrie: The Musical"; Original Theatrical Trailer; Carrie Franchise Trailer Gallery; TV Spots; Radio Spots; Still Gallery – Rare Behind-The-Scenes Photos; Stephen King And The Evolution Of Carrie Text Gallery; and a reversible wrap will includes original theatrical poster key art.
Fans of the film will want to take note of two exclusive offers on the release—which are only available at www.shoutfactory.com while supplies last: a standard offer that includes a slipcover and a limited-edition 18” x 24” poster of the newly-designed art from artist Nat Marsh -- shipped two weeks earlier than National Street date of October 11th; and a deluxe offer that is limited to 3000 units and includes everything above plus a second slipcover—made exclusively for this promotion and newly-designed from artist Joel Robinson and a second 18” x 24” poster of the newly designed art from Joel Robinson -- shipped THREE weeks earlier than National Street date.
