Horror 101 – Episode 53: Carrie (1976/2013)

Episode 53: Carrie (1976/2013) – May 7th, 2016

If you got a taste for terror, than you have a date with Carrie.

Welcome to the 53rd episode of the Horror 101 Show. Since Cash and The World Famous Brian Stewart turn 40 this year we figured we’d spotlight a horror film from the year they came unto this world, 1976. What better time to show some love to Brian De Palma’s Carrie, based on one of Stephen King’s first novels. Get out your pig’s blood and St. Sebastian statues, we’ve got a great show for you. Since the anti-bully movement is in full motion these days Carrie is more relevant now than maybe its ever been before. Starring Sissy Spacek, William Katt, Nancy Allen, Piper Laurie, P.J. Soles and introducing John Travolta. Carrie is the ultimate underdog story of a young misfit girl who, after being picked on all her life by her peers and an overbearing mother manifests a powerful telekinesis that is unleashed in a hellish display of lethal retribution after a vicious prank goes too far. We will watch both the original and 2013 remake starring Chloe Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore and compare the two. We’ve thrown in some music from 1976 to give that 70s vibe. Join us for 38 minutes of senior prom hellishness.

    Hey Cash another amazing Ep & a nice pick I was always a fan of Carrie & I have to agree with you all n especially Nick I think it was the mother is completely out there n terrifying how crazy she gets & I wanted to mention my thoughts on your night of the demons Ep of coarse it’s one of my favs just like the film now I have heard you guys all agree how the stooge character doesn’t talk once turned into a demon & listening I didn’t think I heard any of you mention that when he kiss Angelia she bites his tongue out if you remember so I was just tossing that idea out that maybe that’s why they made him a mute but I bet you guys already thought of that or probably mentioned it n I just missed it but I thought like you wish he did talk more but I always assumed that’s why he was silent in the rest of the film

      Shaun, glad you enjoyed the Carrie show. Stooge was our favourite character before the shit hit the fan. He was funny and loud and carried the film well. Then tongue chomp and demonized. Nothing more comes out of his mouth. He’s like he’s hound dog of the demons. In retrospect, I wouldn’t change anything about that film. Except maybe Cathy Podewell.
