“Carrie” (1976) dir. Brian DePalma

Seeing this trailer for “Carrie” at the age of 7 seriously warped my fragile little mind. Of course, my parents were not insane enough to take me to this movie (it was R-rated… and a hard-R at that for the time, considering the violence and frontal nudity). But seeing that bucket of blood hit Sissy Spacek and the screen turning red along with scenes from the following bloodbath and those crazed eyes of Spacek’s really unnerved me (and of course, made me really really want to see it). Over 35 years later, it’s still one of the best trailers I’ve ever seen.
