De Palma rebounded in 1980 with his masterwork, "Dressed to Kill." The psychosexual thriller is a nerve-fraying exercise in suspense, crafted by a director at the peak of his macabre talents.
Now a bankable commodity, De Palma turned to Howard Hawks' 1932 "Scarface." With a meaty, tirelessly quotable script by Oliver Stone and Al Pacino's bombastic performance as a Cuban drug lord, the film was as popular as it was controversial.
On the strength of "Carlito's Way," Tom Cruise tapped De Palma to helm the big-screen version of "Mission: Impossible." Although the $80 million actioner was lambasted for its impenetrable plot, it went on to become the third-highest-grossing movie of 1996.

De Palma's first film to gain theatrical release was 1968's Murder a la Mod, and the first to accrue critical approval was a trendy antiwar tome called Greetings (1968), again with the Brooklyn boy who by this time was known as Robert De Niro.
Carrie (1976), De Palma's most successful film to that date (and still one of the most successful Stephen King adaptations), marked a return to the split-screen technique and wrapped the story up with another of De Palma's trademarks, the "false shock" ending which turns out to be a nightmare.
De Palma next explored a different kind of violence in Casualties of War (1989), a Vietnam War film that centered on the outrageous mistreatment of a Vietnamese woman by a platoon of American soldiers.

 CARRIE (1976)
The film was based on Stephen King's first novel, the story of a shy teenage girl, Carrie White (Sissy Spacek), who is victimized both by her peers and a repressive, fanatically religious mother (Piper Laurie).
The film was shot in fifty days for a remarkably modest $1.8 million, a budget that didn't allow for an elaborate opening sequence depicting an incident from Carrie's past (with Spacek playing the character in a manner similar to Genevieve Bujold's childhood flashbacks in OBSESSION).
Indeed, the limited use of pyrotechnics was welcomed by De Palma, who saw Carrie's power as an extension of her emotions rather than a gimmick for its own sake, and therefore didn't want to overuse it.
