The remake of Carrie hits theaters today, and to celebrate horror attractions across the country have been using the movie's iconic prom scene to their advantage.

This week, the Savage House near San Diego gave anyone who donated a prom dress to a local charity free admission to their haunted house, and Blood Manor in NYC has been giving away Carrie swag as well as student discounts. Those are great, but Hangman's House in Fort Worth, TX has taken the theme to a whole new level.

Spend Your DFW Layover at the American Airlines C.R. Smith Museum

If you’ve got some time to kill before your flight out of Dallas-Ft. Worth there’s no need to visit the airport bar—although that isn’t necessarily the worst idea. Instead keep the rental car for a few extra minutes, and take a visit to the American Airlines C.R. Smith Museum right on the outskirts of the airport complex in Fort Worth, Texas.

In a nutshell, the aviation museum shows off the history of American Airlines, and there’s plenty of interactive exhibits that keep you from dozing off during your visit. The museum’s Flightlab reveals how exactly airplanes stay up in the air, along with explaining all other kinds of stuff related to aerodynamics and flying machines. There’s even a Flight Simulator where you can test your skills in the cockpit, but just be sure to call ahead—(817) 967-5904—to ensure it’s open during your visit.
