When Sissy Spacek was preparing for her character, she isolated herself from the rest of the ensemble, decorated her dressing room with heavy religious iconography and studied Gustave Doré’s illustrated Bible. She studied ‘the body language of people being stoned for their sins’, starting or ending every scene in one of those positions.
Although there has been three versions of ‘Carrie’ and a sequel at this point, the 1976 version is the only version Stephen King likes. In fact when they were planning to remake this version in 2013 he openly asked “The question is why? When the original is so good.” King even likes this version better than his own novel; he says it’s “much better than the book.”
