High school can be hell, and Stephen King’s 1974 novel Carrie is a prime example of teenagers crossing a line with their cruelty… only to find out too late that they messed with the wrong person. The folks at Scream Factory are heading back to school with their recent announcement that next spring they will release on Blu-ray the 2002 TV film Carrie and The Rage: Carrie 2, the sequel to Brian De Palma’s 1976 adaptation.
From Scream Factory: “Our month-long “Shocktober” celebration continues with two more films to reveal: Carrie – the 2002 TV-movie remake of Stephen King’s timeless tale of telekinetic revenge which stars Angela Bettis – and The Rage: Carrie II – the 1999 theatrical sequel to Brian DePalma’s original 1976 masterpiece and stars Amy Irving – will make their debut on the Blu-ray format next Spring as a double-feature.

“That’s what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age!”
Dazed And Confused plays this weekend (August 19th and 20th) at the Tivoli as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli Midnight series.
I graduated from Kirkwood High School in 1979 and Dazed And Confused, which I saw at the Shady Oak Theater in Clayton 14 years later, is so spot-on it’s scary. Writer-Director Richard Linklater is one year older than me and his film debut was a nostalgic look back at the final day of school, when the soon-to-be-seniors get drunk and stoned waiting for their first year at the top of the food chain while the incoming freshmen get prepared for a year of getting picked on. A wide range of character drink, smoke pot and have fun talking about what life is about to offer them. I think »

Justin Chang: Andrew, if you’ll allow me a brief (sort of) digression before we get down to business: A few nights ago, as part of our foolhardy mission to rank the films of Richard Linklater, I watched “Waking Life” for the first time since I’d seen it at a college screening in 2001. Back then, we were both sophomores at USC (though we didn’t know each other at the time), and presumably of the ideal age and mindset to groove on the film’s kaleidoscopic visuals and similarly trippy discourse. I recall having been more bored than seduced at the time, though I’m happy to say that my very different reaction following this second viewing — which began around midnight, all the better to cultivate the optimal bleary-eyed dream state — was enough to move “Waking Life” a few notches up my own list.
At a certain point late into the movie, »

I can't remember if I saw Richard Linklater's Dazed and Confused when Universal unceremoniously dumped it into only 183 theaters on September 24, 1993, but seeing how it topped out at 191 theaters I have to assume I was among the masses that caught it on video shortly thereafter. No matter when I first saw it, I do remember when I fell in love with it. It was 1995, my freshman year in college and while I wasn't a teen of the '70s, it didn't take much to find a connection. My college roommate and I would damn near have this film playing on a loop, and while I can't speak for him, for me it hit home because while the film is centering on a junior high student's initiation into high school, I had a similar experience transitioning from high school to college. While many aspects of Dazed and Confused are teenage dreamworld scenarios, »

Dunham stopped by The Tonight Show on Tuesday to promote Sunday’s season finale of her HBO comedy, Girls. And while it’s not surprising that these two had a breezy, fun conversation — thanks in no small part to their mutual admiration — what we didn’t expect was a five-minute nostalgia trip, with the duo reminiscing about video stores and the impact of Reese Witherspoon’s early career.
It turns out both Dunham and Fallon had gigs working as video store clerks when they were teens. »
