DailyBeast.com: Crazy Girl Movie Roles

Sissy Spacek in 'Carrie' (1976)

The first film to be adapted from a Stephen King novel, “Carrie” launched Sissy Spacek's career. Even though the actress was well into her twenties, she earned an Oscar nod for playing the shy high school senior with telekinetic powers. When Carrie is crowned in pig's blood at her prom, she massacres the entire school with her crazy-chick wrath. In The New Yorker, Pauline Kael raved, "Spacek uses her freckled pallor and whitish eyelashes to suggest a squashed, groggy girl who could go in any direction … I don't see how this performance could be any better."
