This is how Stephen King will mess with your head. . .
I'm watching The Hunchback Of Notre Dame with my daughter. I said to my wife, "does this remind you of Carrie?"
"No," she said.
So I offered this:
An outcast is rejected by his family, told crazy religious things and feels totally alone and laughed at. Summoning all his courage, he attends the prom -- I mean Festival of Fools -- where he is crowned King. But at the moment of triumph, they don't throw pigs blood, but tomatoes. I only wish the poor guy had the powers Carrie had to wipe them all out.
