1 Y'all really need for that scene to be realistic bad doncha lol? Tell you what. Google when that's ever been reported IRL over some girl getting her first period, and provide the link and I'll believe you. BTW, if that "happened today" as someone claimed it would, they'd be expelled instead of the wrist-slap they received in the movie. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 30, 2012, 2:28 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 PT, a couple of things about the shower scene: 1) Just because you haven't heard of it happening (the period-teasing) doesn't mean it never happens. There are some things that girls seldom if ever talk about to guys--even their husbands. When Stephen King wrote the novel he was a bit uncomfortable writing from the female point of view and ran a lot of scenes by his wife to make sure he got it right (his need for accuracy in the writing that was putting bread on their table trumping the above-implied "girl honor code"). No doubt this included the shower scene, to make sure he portrayed the other girls' cattiness, teasing, and general reactions realistically. 2) In the context of the novel, Carrie's being teased and bullied about her period makes perfect sense. These are a bunch of girls who have known each other since they started grade school, and for all that time Carrie's been picked on for being different. Now fast-forward to the shower scene and Carrie's doing something REALLY different: getting her first period at age 16, being frightened out of her mind because she thinks she's bleeding to death, and having no idea what to do (although you can certainly blame her mother for the latter two). It's been the community norm for as long as anyone can remember to tease Carrie for being different, so it's no wonder the other girls just totally unloaded on her. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on July 28, 2012, 9:16 am - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Okay, your point's taken. But that would SO happen today--and probably has lots of times. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on July 27, 2012, 4:27 am - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Day 1. I'm sure this was a big time thriller in its day, and I'm sure it would still scare a lot of people, but I totally DO NOT BUY that locker room scene with all those girls ganging up on Carrie, chanting "plug up your leak" like crazed jackals, just because she got her period and didn't have a tampon. I don't think that would happen in a ghetto much less where it was depicted. I found that more offensive than the blood and violence, because it insulted my intelligence. Was there bullying in the 70s? Yeah, I just think there were certain lines they didn't cross even then. NEVER heard of a girl getting bullied about her period....NEVER! Probably because most girls empathize about that sort of thing. That boned this franchise for me. How good could the sequels be if the original insulted my intelligence like that? -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 26, 2012, 4:47 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
