Based on: "Carrie" (1973)
Director: Brian De Palma
In his 1981 non-fiction book "Danse Macabre": "De Palma's approach to the material was lighter and more deft than my own -- and a good deal more artistic...The book seems clear enough and truthful enough in terms of the characters and their actions, but it lacks the style of De Palma's film. The book attempts to look at the ant farm of high school society dead on; De Palma's examination of this 'High School Confidential' world is more oblique...and more cutting."
In a November 2007 interview with ABC's "Nightline": "'Carrie' is a good movie. It hasn't aged as well as some of the other ones. But it's still pretty good."
