Miscellaneous Thoughts sparked by the movie Carrie.

Carrie is much less effective as a horror movie if you can't stop imagining it as some X-Men's tragic backstory.

...

Piper Laurie however would totally rock as a scary comic book villainess. Egads.

...

Also, is it wrong that I kind of want to read a fanfic crossover involving Ralph from the Greatest American Hero teaming up with his possibly-psychotic telekinetic high school prom date?

...

It's possible I'm just not the right temperament to appreciate Stephen King.

...

Though I always liked the Dead Zone tv series...you know the one where they took the basic premise of the book and CHANGED IT ALL.

...

I really liked that one season finale that outright attributed the vastly different events of the movie/book and the tv show to the existance of that attractive physical therapist guy. That was neat.

...

Mostly I was shocked that Anthony Michael Hall grew up hot. Yowza.

...

I like them creepy and prone to swooning?

...

Okay, is it just me or would a comic starring Johnny Smith, Carrie White, the kid from the Shining, and Drew Barrymore's character from Firestarter as a League of Extraordinary Gentleman by way of X-Men style superteam be awesome?

...

I'm going to bed.

    Johnny could be their wise mentor. I mean if you go with the one not killed taking out Crazy Sheen President...

    Not just you in the slightest. They'd be a crazy awesome team, albeit prone to getting involved with some way creepy shit.

    What about Anthony Fremont from the "It’s a Good Life" episode of the Twilight Zone?

    Sorry, I started laughing, and now I can't stop. It's just so...perfect!

    Their master villain would have to be Randall Flag, the Walking Man.

    (And Roland the Gunslinger would make a good addition. He'd be the wolverine :))
