Carrie is a American supernatural horror film. It is the third film adaptation of Stephen King's 1974 novel of the same name, though MGM and Screen Gems, who are producing the film, employed a script that is reportedly more faithful to King's original novel.Wikipedia
I had only one question after watching Carrie - what was the point? This Carrie isn’t worth spending time with but I do recommend that you find the De Palma film.
Had it been cast better, Carrie could have been a true horror flick, but now it’s just truly horrifying.
While Carrie begins eerily enough, there is a turning point where the screenplay abandons psychological horror of the kind that Shutter or The Conjuring dish out, and goes for full-gear gore instead. It then becomes more graphic and visceral rather than creepy.
Neither scary nor engaging, Carrie suffers an identity crises because of a weak script and sketchy direction.
If you haven’t seen Palma film, you can sit through this one but just about.
...cannot be called the perfect horror film. But the director who broke out with Boys Don’t Cry, managed to capture the heartbreaking story of a teenager with loads of special effects of course! A drab remake of a classic thriller.
As remakes go, it isn’t as lame as it could be. Director Kimberly Peirce gets inside the psychology of her characters more than Brian De Palma did in 1976.
