30-Day Horror Movie Challenge: Day 16 – Childhood Themed Horror Film…

movie poster Carrie 1976

Tagline: If only they knew she had the power.

Synopsis: “Carrie White, a shy, friendless teenage girl who is sheltered by her domineering, religious mother, unleashes her telekinetic powers after being humiliated by her classmates at her senior prom.” source

I took today’s prompt to mean horror films in which childhood or growing up is the primary or dominant theme. Not horror films I watched during childhood.

CARRIE is really relatable for anyone who, growing up, never really felt like they belonged. Bonus points for a toxic mother. The awkwardness of changing bodies. The clash between adolescence and young adulthood. The nightmare that is the girls locker room.

Check out CARRIE on IMDb | Watch the trailer
