The classic image of Carriewillowy prom queen showered in blood—is so epochal, it's all but eclipsed the hour and a half of rich teen horror that surrounds it. From semipublic tampon torture to vengeful telekinesis to the world's spookiest Bad Mother, Carrie is a pulpy high-school nightmare. Elevating everything: Sissy Spacek, who lights up the pulp with a great performance. Why you should actually leave your house to watch Carrie: It's at Central Cinema, where pizza, beer, and popcorn are brought to your table. (Central Cinema, 1411 21st Ave, 686-6684. 9:30 pm, $6, late show 21+.)
