Jackie Beat home tour

Beat's home office is filled with memorabilia related to the Stephen King novel "Carrie" and the subsequent film. "It's not a perfect movie, but I saw it when I was 13, and it changed my life," Beat says. "The message of 'Carrie' is: Don't mess with the freak." She mounted artwork on blood-red walls. A vintage chair with a Greek key pattern sits next to a skull lamp created by Beat's friend O'Shay Nunn.Ricardo DeAratanha / Los Angeles Times
