Worth watching just for Sissy Spacek’s Academy Award-nominated breakout performance in the title role, this landmark horror film based on the novel by Stephen King is directed by Brian De Palma, who is known as a “master of body horror.” It takes everyday teenage indignities — like overbearing parents and bullying classmates — and amplifies them, reminding us all of the horrific moments that came along with the ubiquitous experiences of high school and puberty. Of course, telekinetic powers help. Carrie put Sissy Spacek on the map, and also marked the film debut of John Travolta.

Tickets are on sale at the Plaza Theatre Box Office and Ticketmaster.com (service charges apply.)
