See this film: Carrie @fter midnight at the Coolidge

Maybe Brian De Palma's best film and, next to The Shining, the best adaptation of a Stephen King novel, Carrie (1976) remains the scariest depiction of a difficult adolescence on film. Sissy Spacek plays the tormented teen of the title who will not suffer long the bullies in school or her Bible-thumping mother (Piper Laurie). Though oft-imitated since, the ending remains a shocker. A must-see before the release of the upcoming remake directed by Kimberly Peirce and starring Chloë Grace Moretz.
