Carrie is based on the masterly horror writer Stephen King's book. The original release was in 1976. Thirty seven years later, a modern version has been released in the cinema screen. To be honest, I am not a fan of remakes, as I have seen plenty of abysmal and pointless remakes. Carrie is a reasonable remake.
Carrie is a supernatural horror film. The story is about Margaret White, a disturbed, sinister and overly religions character, who gives birth to a girl, with the intention of killing her, but changes mind. Years later, a shy and loner Carrie is nearly graduating. One day Carrie experiences her first menstrual period in the girls showers. Fellow pupils laugh and take joy seeing this. Carrie is a victim of bullying. What is the explanation for this? Later, we found out Carrie holds supernatural powers, that can cause destruction. The pace and adrenaline of the film picks up mid way, as Carrie's character become scary and spooky. There are scary and disturbing scenes throughout the film.
The modern version is a descent remake. I did not mind at all.
