    Since Criterion released BLOW OUT AND DRESSED TO KILL, and released CARRIE on laserdisc (they do like to get old laserdisc titles,) I assumed that they'd also be the ones to do CARRIE. Oh well, I'll be happy to upgrade my crummy MGM Blu.

    Maybe in time they will.

    Maybe in 2023 or 2026

    One reason to be a bit disappointed that Scream got this is that Criterion most likely would have gotten some participation from de Palma and Spacek (and maybe King), all of which declined to participate in this release. Still, pretty sure Scream will alright by this.

    From Arrow's FB:

    ** CARRIE SPECIAL FEATURES UPDATE **
    Good news! Our December release of CARRIE has added a new bonus feature. After trawling through the MGM vaults, we have rediscovered the alternative opening title sequence prepared for network television! The sequence – which hasn’t been seen in years – presented a more chaste approach to the girls’ locker room in order to appease TV guidelines.

    While tracking down this sequence, we also checked out the original soundtracks to see if we could locate the original “really shitty thing the other day” line of dialogue, but unfortunately all of the mags in the archive contained the “really shitty thing yesterday” line instead.
