Concluding the’ tribute to horror films and Halloween, Geekscape columnist, Eric Diaz returns for one of his favorites, Brian De Palma’s adaptation of Stephen King’s Carrie, from 1976. It’s the tragic story of a shy, teenage girl who discovers she has telekinesis. Is it a gift from God, or a curse of the Devil? And what does this mean for Carrie’s future and those who continue to bully her at school?
Please join Eric and I as we discuss filmmaking techniques of the 1970s’, the works of novelist, Stephen King and the translation of book to film. Remember to listen for the preemptive countdown before starting the movie on your DVD.
[re: locker room] This would never f***ing happen in a modern movie. It’s like muffapalooza.— Sofa Dogs,
What if Carrie got to have a normal prom? … I was totally thinking that when I was revisited the film earlier. … She and William Katt are standing there, all happy and everything, aaaaand credits.— ,
Carrie approaches it as a miracle. And so I identify with Carrie, Carrie’s the hero, I like Carrie, so— like, you’re right, Carrie. It is a miracle. Good for you.— Sofa Dogs,
‘Dirty pillows’ is a phrase I’ve never heard outside of this movie. Nope. … She’s not wrong. You can totally see ‘em. Nipples and everything. Yeah, her headlights were totally on.— Sofa Dogs,
[dancing scene] I don’t feel so good, Eric. Yeah, I know, with the f***in’ spinning? God, they can stop that now. Aaaand now. Aaaand stop. You just close your eyes. I’ll tell you when it’s over.— Sofa Dogs,
I don’t remember who played Margaret White in the mini-series but … she was just really understated. And that’s just not what you do with this part. Yeah. No offense, but, in this case, you go full retard.— Sofa Dogs,
