Kids have some crazy fears, and they can develop in the strangest ways. I watched Carrie with a babysitter as a kid and for years I was convinced my mom was trying to kill me, just like Carrie's mom did at the end of the movie. If she offered me hot chocolate I would suspect attempted murder. And to make matters worse, my mother's curly hair looked a lot like Piper Laurie's did in that movie. Now that I'm an adult I've of course outgrown that silly fear…mostly.
