The Movie: 'Carrie' (1976)

The Scene: Carrie White (Sissy Spacek) isn't exactly a popular girl and her religious fanatic of a mother, Margaret White (Piper Laurie) doesn't help matters. Mommy dearest locks her in closets, forces her to recite scripture and refers to her lady parts as "dirty pillows." That doesn't stop Carrie from being brave and accepting an invite -- albeit a suspicious one -- to the prom. Carrie's date Tommy (William Katt) is the boyfriend of fellow classmate Sue (Amy Irving). After the girls at school traumatize Carrie in the locker room when she gets "the curse of blood," Sue has a moment of regret and offers up her man as Carrie's boy toy for the evening to make nice. At the prom, Carrie finally relents to Tommy's advances and a magical evening is had by all. That is, until Carrie's nemesis Chris (Nancy Allen) and her meatball of a boyfriend Billy (John Travolta) dump a bucket of pig's blood on her head when Carrie is named prom queen. Much to everyone's surprise, Carrie's been practicing her telekinesis and decides to open up a can of whoop ass on everyone at prom for revenge.
