Who had it worse: Carrie White from 'Carrie' or Regan from 'The Exorcist'?

Being a teenage girl is pretty rough already. Adults just don't understand, and boys who were previously overwrought with cooties are now the only thing anyone ever talks about that. But there are some girls who have a particularly difficult time. Take titular character, “Carrie” White, who has to deal with her deranged mother, bullies, and telekinesis on top of all her prom stress. Or Regan from “The Exorcist” who wanted company but wasn’t looking for it in the form of Satan. Who had it worse?

Carrie White is a girl we all knew in high school. The one that was very shy and reserved. She was the one that wasn’t really annoying or anything, but exuded a type of naïveté that inherently drove everyone up the wall. If you know a Carrie now, before you get all annoyed because she’s a teenager and still has no idea what menstruation is, take a step back and try to understand her situation: Her mom is probably a straight-up psycho that locks her in the closet as part of her punishment, and her dad probably died when she was little. She also will very much kill you with telekinesis.

That’s the one thing Carrie has going for her. After getting relentlessly picked on by her incredibly nasty schoolmates (and even one snot-burger of a kid on a bike), Carrie finally assumes some sort of powerful role. She even gets a prom date, although all that gets shot to Hell when one particularly vicious bully rigs the voting for prom queen in Carrie’s favor. Sound nice? Well, it isn’t, since it was all a ploy to get Carrie on stage to dump pig’s blood on her. Carrie promptly loses it, going on a killing spree that eventually includes her zealot of a mother and herself.

Although Carrie had a dope superpower, her story remains tragic from start to finish. She never had a shot at life, considering both her parents were absolute lunatics, and even when she gets her revenge the community labels her as a monster. Luckily Sue Snell (Amy Irving) is aware of a real deal, something she probably tells her therapist regularly.

“The Exorcist” hurt the sale of pea soup well into the nineties. When it didn’t have pea croppers (gatherers? Whatever.) shaking their fists at the sky, the film scared the global population back into going to church. Whether the practice stuck with the majority of said population, who knows, but we’re probably sure there’s a resurgence each time there’re reruns on TV.

The film follows Linda Blair as Regan, a young girl constantly left alone due to the schedule of her busy mother, actress Chris MacNeil (Ellen Burstyn). Regan starts acting weird, seemingly in a way that all preteens and teens do, until it suddenly, it’s not. Turns out all that peeing on the floor and bed shaking and head-spinning is signs of a demonic possession. That, or Regan really knows how to screw around with the adults (and who also happens to be very athletic in a very disturbing way). 

#PoorRegan

You’re already losing enough control of your body when you hit puberty; having the evilest force in existence possess you grossly exacerbates the situation. All Regan wanted as a few close friends to chill with and a mom that included her in her life. Instead she got saddled with spider-crawling down the stairs and a couple of dead priests. Hopefully adulthood’s an improvement.
