Scary Movie Week: That bucket of blood

Remember “Carrie”? I was too young to see it when it first came to theaters, but I’ve since watched it in bits and pieces on television (that ending scene continues to freak me out, to this day) and eventually the whole thing on DVD, and every time Sissy Spacek breaks my heart. Best performance in a horror movie, ever? (She did get an Oscar nomination for it; a rarity for a genre film.) What do you think?

A wonderfully suspenseful moment in “Carrie,” at the prom, just before everything goes haywire. Love the weird green lighting.
