A double-feature of two horror classics based on the writings of Stephen King!

For Carrie White (Sissy Spacek), what begins in blood ends in blood. Brian De Palma (Dressed To Kill, Scarface) takes Stephen King's first novel and creates one of the most harrowing high school films ever.

Carrie's mother, Margaret (Piper Laurie), is a domineering evangelical who beats and abuses her daughter in the name of purity, grace, and innocence. After her first period, strange things begin to happen when Carrie gets mad, and no bible-thumping matriarch is going to be a match for Carrie's newfound telekinetic powers...nor are the bullies that populate her school, for that matter.

Combine John Carpenter's (Halloween, The Thing) signature directorial style, the supernatural writing from Stephen King (Cat's Eye, Pet Semetary), and a red 1958 Plymouth Fury and you've got one of the slickest, eeriest possessed car movies ever made.

After buying his new car and naming it Christine, highschooler Arnie (Keith Gordan) goes from nerd to the most popular kid in school. But wearing new clothes and dating the prettiest girl in class aren't the only changes going on, as Christine's murderous side emerges by trampling, burning, and choking anyone who gets in its way. With its brooding score and brilliant special effects, this is an overlooked gem from one of the true masters of horror.
