Carrie on Blu-ray Giveaway




Prom in Pop Culture

Dance into stores to pick up a copy of Carrie on DVD and Blu-ray, January 14th! 


Carrie is a re- imagining of the classic horror tale about Carrie White (Chloë Grace Moretz), a shy girl outcast by her peers and sheltered by her deeply religious mother (Julianne Moore), who unleashes telekinetic terror on her small town after being pushed too far at her senior prom. Prom night has been dubbed one of the passage rights of high school, so can you blame Carrie for going a little nuts? Her special night just didn't turn out like it the ones in fairy-tales. To gear you up to see Carrie’s prom night, we've compiled a list of films that showcase awesome high school dances. 

1. Footloose


In a town where rock music and dancing are prohibited, one would think Prom night might be a downer. Ren McCormack decides he needs to change that by going in front of the City Council, which includes the father of the girl he is crushing on. When he is still voted against, Ren outsmarts them by moving the town out of city limits.

2. Mean Girls

While Mean Girl’s actually puts on a “Spring Fling” rather than a prom, it’s close enough. Even if Cady Heron shows up in a mathlete's jacket and khaki pants, she still totally has the night of her dreams. She wins queen, a gift certificate to the Walker Brother’s pancake house and she and Aaron Samuels are practically dating now.

3. She’s all that


While Laney's prom night doesn't exactly go as she would have dreamed, her evening to follow easily makes up for it. When Laney leaves the dance early, she finds Zack at her house and there they share a magical dance and their first kiss. Adorable.

4. Never Been Kissed

Josie pretty much gets an unfair life advantage, because this is technically her second chance at prom. Josie wins prom queen even though no one knows she isn't really a student, just a journalist who has never been kissed. In an epic scene, Josie reveals her secret at the risk of losing everything she’s gained so far, including the teacher she has the hots for, to defend a girl who was just like her.

5. A Cinderella Story

Okay so technically this is a Halloween dance, but Sam Montgomery looks like a prom queen so it’s okay. Sam and her cyber email lover plan to meet up at the dance, but she doesn't want to reveal that she’s the girl who works at the diner and only has one friend. When it’s time for her to leave, Sam accidentally loses her phone, so Austin has to track her down (I guess they didn't have the find-my-phone app).
