The 15 Best ’70s Horror Movies Ranked – /Film

Stephen King's wife Tabitha famously rescued the pages of his first published novel, "Carrie," from the trash can. Thank goodness for us that she did. And thank goodness for Brian De Palma, who directed the 1976 adaptation that is widely considered one of the best horror films of the '70s or any decade.

In "Carrie," Sissy Spacek stars as 16-year-old Carrie White, a painfully shy girl whose religious mother, Margaret (Piper Laurie), is overbearing, controlling, and abusive. The socially awkward Carrie struggles to fit in at high school, where she is relentlessly bullied by the cool kids, including the popular Chris (Nancy Allen) and her boyfriend Billy (John Travolta). Feeling guilty, one of the nicer students, Sue (Amy Irving) convinces her boyfriend Tommy (William Katt) to invite Carrie to the prom, but they're unaware of an exceptionally cruel prank that Chris is planning.
