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.
