Moviedrome Mondays: Carrie (1976)

I have posted a youtube video link below to Moviedrome presenter Alex Cox’s introduction to director Brian De Palma’s 1976 horror classic Carrie. Readers can also read Cox’s intro transcript here. The episode’s original airdate was September 26, 1993 (read here). Series six ends on a high note as I am a huge fan of both Carrie and the work of it’s filmmaker (De Palma in this case). Along with Salem’s Lot, The Shining, The Dead Zone and The Dark Half, Carrie ranks as one of my five personal favorite film adaptations of a Stephen King novel. As usual, Cox offers up another insightful commentary. If any of you readers are interested, here is a link to my favorite Brian De Palma films (read here).
