Als Dreijährige lässt sie einen Steinregen auf ihr Elternhaus niederregnen, weil ihre Mutter ihr in einem Anfall religiösem Wahns nach dem Leben trachtet. Als Sechzehnjährige muss sie einen Augenblick tiefster Demütigung erleben. Schon immer von ihren Mitschülern wegen ihrer scheuen zurückhaltenden Art gehänselt, wird sie auf dem Abschlussball der Schule das Opfer eines bösen Streichs. Schmerz, Enttäuschung, Wut treiben Carrie zum Äußersten, die beseelt und besessen ist von einer unheimlichen Gabe: Mit schierer Kraft ihres Willens entfesselt sie ein Inferno, gegen das die Hölle ein lieblicher Garten Eden ist. Das ist Carrie - beseelt, besessen von einer unheimlichen Gabe mit ungeheurer Tragweite und furchtbaren Folgen.

Brian De Palma's adaptation of Stephen King's debut novel, Carrie (1976), is one of the defining films of 1970s "New Hollywood" style and a horror classic. The story of a teenage social outcast who discovers she possesses latent psychic powers that allow her to deliver retribution to her peers, teachers, and abusive mother, Carrie was an enormous commercial and critical success and is still one of the finest screen adaptations of a King novel. This contribution to the Devil's Advocates series not only breaks the film down into its formal componenets--its themes, stylistic tropes, technical approaches, uses of color and sound, dialogue, and visual symbolism--but also considers a multitude of other factors contributing to the work's classic status. The act of adapting King's novel for the big screen, the origins of the novel itself, the place of Carrie in De Palma's oeuvre, the subsequent versions and sequel, and the social, political, and cultural climate of the era (including the influence of second wave feminism, loosening sexual norms, and changing representations of adolescence), as well as the explosion of interest in and the evolution of the horror genre during the decade, are all shown to have played an important part in the film's success and enduring reputation.

When the Second World War air raids threaten their safety in the city, Carrie and her brother Nick are evacuated to a small Welsh village. But the countryside has dangers and adventures of its own - and a group of characters who will change Carrie's life forever. There's mean Mr Evans, who won't let the children eat meat; but there’s also kind Auntie Lou. There's brilliant young Albert Sandwich, another evacuee, and Mr Johnny, who speaks a language all of his own. Then there's Hepzibah Green, the witch at Druid’s Grove who makes perfect mince pies, and the ancient skull with its terrifying curse...For adults and young people aged eight and over. Emma Reeves has created a stunning stage adaptation of Nina Bawden’s much loved classic account of life as an evacuee in the 1940s, which opened at the Lillian Bayliss Theatre in November 2006.

Carrie's Phenomenal Journey vicariously takes you along on this wild journey of love. We stroll Parisian streets; hike the sandy roads of Niamey, Niger; mingle with people; and immerse ourselves in cultures. Sometimes we watch, laugh, or sigh and assimilate together. "I opened Carrie's Phenomenal Journey and was smitten with a young African American girl's dream of an education. I followed this heroine--and I don't use that word lightly--through falling in love to the betrayal and divorce. Carrie's dream had not died, and soon she found hope and fulfillment in education and a promising career in education. But life was nowhere over. I celebrated as Carrie moves to Paris to study the language in preparation for her service in Niger, West Africa. I flew over the Sahara desert with Carrie, saw the blue men of the Taureg, and clapped with the colorful tribe women under Carrie's nurturing wing. As her days in the field came to a close Carrie returns to family and creating a home in Jacksonville, Florida." --Carol O'Dell, author of Mothering Mother: A Daughter's Humorous and Heartbreaking Memoir "An informative and entertaining book written by someone who spent years living with the peoples of Africa." --AMCS Louis Myers, USN Retired
