Rated R for a swear here and a swear there.
Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie shine (and creep you out) in the topic of our 36th Next 100 Project ‘cast. Brian De Palma’s horror hit doesn’t truly frighten us anymore, but its themes are juicy. Bullying, feminism, religious insanity are all here, plus we discuss if Carrie is a burgeoning super-hero. Punch up the Sparkplug Coffee link, then be nice to the prom queen and hear of her bloody tale.
CORRECTIONS: Of course, Sigourney Weaver wasn’t Oscar-nominated for Alien, but was for Aliens. Also, we failed to mention that Carrie the character was nominated for AFI’s Top 50 Villains List.
