Mothers provide us with unconditional love, which means we love them unconditionally as well. Sometimes, that means ignoring the fact that they’re completely insane and borderline psychotic. A mother’s love has been a focus in the horror genre for generations and with today a day for celebrating the women in our lives, I am taking a look at the Top 5 Horror Movies Moms:
Directed by Brian DePalma (Dressed to Kill, Blow Out) and based on the novel by Stephen King, Carrie celebrates its 40th anniversary with a 2-disc Collector’s Edition Blu-ray from Scream Factory, which includes a brand new 4K scan of the film and nearly three hours of bonus material.
The first motion picture adaptation of a Stephen King book, Carrie stars Sissy Spacek (Coal Miner’s Daughter) as Carrie White, a high school girl with no friends, no self-esteem, and no idea about the power she possesses. In the film’s opening scene, Carrie experiences her first period in the showers after gym class. Unsure of what the blood means, she panics and pleads for help, leading her classmates to pelt her with tampons and chant “plug it up!”
Stephen King‘s birthday is September 21st, but it’s the fans who will receive gifts! Encore TV will show one Stephen King movie a night (sometimes one part a night) through September 30th, and on Mr. King’s actual birthday there will be an all-day marathon starting at 8AM.
Check out the full schedule here below.
It is not every Stephen King movie and there are some notable ones missing, but if every single one was my favorite, I would not leave the house in September at all! You do get to enjoy The Running Man with Arnold Schwarzenegger in the worst game show ever, and Secret Window with Johnny Depp as an author accused of plagiarism and then terrorized for it by an excellent John Turturro. Salem’s Lot scared the crap out of me as a kid. Why was I watching Salem’s Lot as a kid? Oh yeah — it was 1979.
The newest adaptation of Stephen King’s Carrie, a film about a girl with telekinetic powers who gets bullied and begins to use her powers against a lot of people, just hit theaters last week. The movie had some really great marketing schemes including the viral coffee shop prank that was covered on the site a few weeks ago.
With Carrie‘s recent release, I thought it would be appropriate to compile a list of five telekinetic fictional characters that Carrie would not want to mess with and who make the power Carrie wields seem like child’s pay.
Check out the list below of the Top 5 Telekinetics Stronger Than Carrie.
Unsuspecting patrons at a cafe in New York City got quite the scare recently after a young girl went all “Carrie” on them as she seemingly used telekinetic powers to hurl another patron, then move the chairs and tables, and knock the books off the shelves.
Here below, you can check out the video of the incident, which was a viral marketing staged prank for Sony’s upcoming horror remake Carrie.
The elaborate stunt, which took place at sNice Cafe in the West Village in New York City, was staged by Thinkmodo, the New York-based viral video marketing company that was also responsible for “Flying People” viral video for the film Chronicle.
