Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
Stephen King has long given credit to his very prosperous writing career to one Mr. Brian De Palma. King’s reasoning is that he could have written the best books in the world, but without De Palma’s masterful adaptation that hit it so big with audiences King never would have had the audience.
Luckily King had the good when the audience came and that’s what’s made him a legend in the print world… but what would have happened if De Palma hadn’t made such a great flick with Carrie? The world would be a different place, especially for horror fans like me.
Carrie is a rich film, gorgeously shot and riddled with fantastic performances. Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie stand out as being ridiculously great in this movie, but you also get good turns by Amy Irving, Nancy Allen, a young John Travolta, the adorable PJ Soles and William Katt’s perm.
Children are cruel, but for all the picked upon nerds, fatties and dweebs there’s some serious role reversal on display in this movie that makes us smile. It’s okay that we’re picked on because one day the pretty people will pick on the wrong anti-social outcast and they’ll get electrocuted by a goddamn microphone! I was gonna say cut in half by a bleacher, but that was one of the nice teachers.
Today we have two pictures from Carrie, both featuring Sissy Spacek covered in blood. The second one I’ve had for a while, but didn’t have a place for it because it was so low res, but as a B-side to a nice, crisp image it’s great… especially since it looks like Sissy is smoking a joint!
Tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes Pic wants life!
