It’s hard to imagine a time when Stephen King wasn’t the king of horror fiction. It’s hard to imagine a world without such influential stories including The Shining, The Stand, Christine, and King’s first novel, Carrie. Yet before November, 1976 King was just another author with two modest-selling novels. But when Brian De Palma decides to adapt Carrie for the big screen he created an iconic horror movie staple, and from that King’s book sold millions of copies and his career was minted. Now, in anticipation of the upcoming third adaptation of Carrie starring Chloë Grace Moretz the Now Playing hosts go back to watch and review De Palma’s original. It’s the start of Now Playing’s massive Stephen King retrospective series, looking at all the movies based on King’s writings, starting with Carrie. Does De Palma’s blood soaked tale of a teen outcast still hold up over 35 years later? Listen to find out
