Carrie 1976
Brian De Palma's "Carrie", based on the Stephen King novel of the same name, is one of the benchmark horror films of American cinema.

Carrie White (Spacek) is a lonely teenage girl who is incapable of fitting in either at school, where she is tormented by her classmates, or at home, where she is abused by her insanely religious mother Margaret (Laurie). Her anger, at herself and her tormentors, is subsumed into herself where it manifests itself in her burgeoning telekinetic powers. These begin as small acts of defiance - an ashtray flipped over onto the floor, a nasty little boy pushed off his bike when he calls her "creepy Carrie" - but the power disturbs her and it troubles her mother even more. Margaret, whose response to Carrie's first period - which has resulted in a particularly cruel bit of bullying - is to say "So you're a woman now", beat her and lock her in a closet, decides that her daughter is a witch. For her part, Carrie becomes increasingly reluctant to take the abuse from her mother. So when the best looking boy in the school, Tommy Ross (Katt), is persuaded by his girlfriend Sue (Irving) to ask Carrie to be his date for the Prom, it seems that Carrie is about to come into her own. But life is about to play a horrible trick on Carrie through the mean-spirited machinations of Chris (Allen), the ringleader of the bullies, and her dim boyfriend Billy Nolan (Travolta). Their trick, involving a bucket of pigs' blood balanced precariously over the stage of the high school gym, is nasty and ingenious, but they aren't prepared for the consequences of their action when it tips Carrie over the edge from anger into pure, destructive rage.
