10 Terrible Movie Moms and the Rotten Things They Said

Going to the movies should make you appreciate your mother even more, as monster mothers run rampant in fiction. Or even non-fiction. Of course, we consider things to be entertainment only if they are outside of your ordinary experience. If you fought with your mom over what to wear to the prom, consider Margaret White in the 1976 movie Carrie.

High school is tough enough, but Carrie’s strict, fundamentalist mother makes the experience a thousand times worse for the awkwardly shy teenager. The horrors of menstruation are taxing on poor Carrie, but her nutty mom adds to the teen’s anxiety by telling her stuff like, “Pimples are the Lord’s way of chastising you,” and, “I can see your dirty pillows.” Clearly Margaret White missed the memo that all little girls grow up. As if all this weren’t bad enough, Mrs. White haunts her daughter with just one sentence: “They’re all gonna laugh at you.” It’s every adolescent’s worst nightmare, and the words make Carrie go full-blown bonkers at the prom.
