Carrie is a 1976 horror film about a high school outcast whose telekinetic powers erupt on prom night, directed by Brian De Palm ("The Untouchables"). Carrie White (Sissy Spacek) has always been the object of teasing and cruel jokes because of her shy personality and sad appearance. Raised by a disturbed single mother, Margaret (Piper Laurie), Carrie has endured a childhood of rough religious teachings and complete ignorance of all social expectations. Popular girl Sue Snell (Amy Irving), finds herself banned from the prom because of her treatment of Carrie, so Sue plots revenge. Tommy Ross (William Katt) follows Sue's orders to ask Carrie to the prom, and Sue and her friends, Chris (Nancy Allen) and Billy (John Travolta), conspire to make sure Carrie wins Prom Queen. Once she goes onstage to accept her crown, the girls will dump a bucket of pig's blood on her. What the high school bullies do not realize is that Carrie has telekinetic powers, and even the meekest victim has a breaking point.
