Carrie 1976 movie review from the Salty Nerds have them discussing Brian de Palma's horror movie masterpiece that successfully adapted Stephen King's first novel into a feminist allegory for smashing the patriarchy.  

Sissy Spacek stars as the titular Carrie White.  She's bad at volleyball, doesn't know what a period is, and can movie stuff with her mind.  Nancy Allen is busy hating her while she isn't getting slapped around by John Travolta, and Amy Irving is trying to hook Carrie up with her boyfriend William Katt when she isn't getting hit on by Steven Spielberg.  

Forget the telekinesis, probably the scariest thing in this whole movie is Piper Laurie as Carrie's crazy religious mother.  Well, that and all the 70s bush on display.
