Starting strongly with a sinister soundtrack, superb surround effects and screams from the start, this has disturbing scenes from the outset and the titles haven’t even started. This is suitably tweaked and altered from earlier version to make it interesting and still remains a classic anti bullying movie and moves along at a quick pace throughout. Excellent acting, great photography and good timing help instil a rollercoaster range of emotions from anger to intense sadness as we watch the story unfold. There are some issues, the final 3 minutes or so creates an anti-climax rather than creating an open ending and some of the plot build up comes across as awkward and unconvincing.
The single disc plays a collage of movies and goes to a main menu offering play, set-up [English 5.1, Eng descriptive 5.1, Deutsch 5.1 & subtitles], scenes and extras [creating carrie, telekinetic coffee shop surprise, theatrical trailer]. Rated 15, this has no sex or nudity but there is some swearing and whilst not an outright scary movie, it is intense from the start with scenes of self mutilation, threatening behaviour and intimidation, but most violence is implied or off screen. This is mainly psychological so slasher fans or edge of the seat scare lovers may be disappointed until close to the end, but if its intensity you want this is easily a ***** and better than many 18 rated films of its genre.
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.Read more ›
The Original 1976 'Sissy Spacec' version was indeed a classic
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
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.
