Format: DVD
There are obvious comparisons between these two versions; after all they are both the same story, for those of you who have never read Stephen King's source material or seen any of the versions it is about a plain girl from a somewhat dysfunctional background whom upon reaching puberty finds out that it's a gift which keeps on giving as she develops extreme telekinetic abilities. It is essentially a horror tale of the consequences of bullying, that's how I see it anyway.

The original movie sees Carietta "Carrie" White (Sissy Spacek) being bullied at school for being somewhat plain and also a little 'odd'. Her hyper-religious upbringing by her psychotic mother has brainwashed her into a way of life in which she is totally unaware of what happens at the onset of puberty, which leads to significantly vicious bullying from classmates.

That's the essential precursor to an escalation of troubles. Without giving too much away the bullying leads to an official reprisal, revenge for that reprisal is meticulously plotted and when fulfilled leads to Carrie turning the tables with a little revenge of her own in a way which has firmly cemented Carrie into Horror history to the point where it has been copied and parodied so often as to become a cliché.

The original, although somewhat dated, still remains the best with Miss Spacek on top form delivering a beautifully poignant performance as the teenager with way too many problems. Sissy Spacek, at 5'3" and of somewhat slender build fitted well in the role despite being 27 at the time. Her performance is the stuff of horror-film legend, and we are never left in any doubt as to the credibility of her emotional outpourings.

This is a first rate horror film, and is a faithful adaptation of the excellent novel by Stephen King. It is also a remake of the successful 1976 movie, which starred Sissy Spacek as the titular character, Piper Laurie as her deranged mother, and John Travolta as Carrie's date for an ill-fated Prom Night - Carrie [Blu-ray] [1976]
Here, Chloe Grace Moretz (famous for the KickAss movies - Kick-Ass/Kick-Ass 2 [Blu-ray] [Region Free] ), takes the lead role, and excellent she is too. Julianne Moore plays her mother, Margaret, and she too doesn't put a foot wrong.
Margaret is a bible-bashing, agoraphobic, self-harming, and psychotic parent. She hates sex, it's the work of the Devil, and it doesn't occur to her that she's causing her daughter enormous psychological harm. Carrie is an introverted, naive teenage girl, the odd one out at High School, and the subject of bullying by the other girls. She has her first period whilst in the girls' locker room, suffers from a panic attack because she doesn't understand what's happening to her body, and the other teenagers mock her mercilessly, using their mobiles to film Carrie's distress.
The girls are led by a particularly loathsome teenager, Chris. Adding insult to injury, Chris puts the digital film onto YouTube.
Carrie has the power of telekinesis, inherited from her father and grandmother. She can move and shape any physical object, using mind control. As her anger builds each day, she starts practising and honing her skills. Meanwhile, the misbehaviour of Chris results in her exclusion from the High School Prom, and she swears to punish Carrie for that.
One of the other girls involved in tormenting Carrie, Sue, feels contempt for her own conduct.

I must confess in recent years I have been critical of re-makes.
The Original 1976 'Sissy Spacec' version was indeed a classic
chiller.
So it's fair to say that I wasn't sure how this would turn out, though
I acknowledge the casting of 'Chloe Grace Mortez' as 'Carrie' and
'Julianne Moore' as the bible-pushing and domineering mother
'Margaret White' was indeed promising.
'Carrie' at school is an outcast, she just doesn't fit in, and is often
mocked by the other students.
Early on 'Carrie' begins to notice that unexplained things happen
often when upset or annoyed.
Learning to harness and control those powers is another thing however.
The school 'Prom' is coming up, things being as they are at school
'Carrie' would not expect to attend.
However one of her fellow pupils is feeling bad about how she and others
had wronged 'Carrie' a few days earlier, so she asks her boyfriend 'Tommy'
to ask the naïve teen to accompany him to the 'Prom'
Of course 'Carrie's' mother won't approve, however having accepted the
invitation she is going, and uses her 'Telekinetic' powers to convince her
mother that 'no' wasn't an option.
'Nicki' the school 'bitch' with the help of her boyfriend devise an evil plot to
turn 'Carrie's' night at the 'Prom' into a nightmare.
The mocking quickly turns into screams and panic as 'Carrie' turns her
humiliation into vengeance.
The original of course did not have the benefit of the technology that this
version had.
This, a decent re-make though possibly lacking the sense of dramatic
intensity many remember.
I guess if this is the first version seen....it's pretty good.
Had I never seen the original I too would be content.
