Watch out for the blood!

Carrie–the 1976 big screen adaptation of Stephen King’s first published novel–will be available in 4K Ultra HD Dec. 13, thanks to Scream Factory, according to a report on Collider.

Horror fans also can pre-order the release in several forms–including a Steelbook–from Scream Factory’s website. This update includes three discs–one has a UHD version of the original film, the second features a Blu-ray version and the third contains extensive extra content–specifically behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the cast and crew.

Carrie–directed by Brian De Palma from a screenplay by Lawrence D. Cohen–stars Sissy Spacek as Carrie White, a shy 16-year-old who is outcast by her peers and sheltered by her religious mother–and who unleashes telekinetic terror on her small town after being pushed too far at her senior prom.

The film–also starring Piper Laurie, Amy Irving and John Travolta–was a critical and commercial success, earning $34 million on a budget of less than $2 million. Both Spacek and Laurie received Oscar nominations for their roles.
