I guess it’s that time again where they deemed it fit to bring back some old movies back to life. In the past few years they’ve remade Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Nightmare on Elm Street, etc. This time around though, they’ve decided to remake Carrie. The movie tells the story of a bullied teenage girl named Carrie who one day discovers that she has telekinetic powers. On their school’s prom night, she used her powers to act out her revenge on the people who bullied her.
Carrie is a remake of the 1976 supernatural horror film of the same name which was based on a Stephen King novel. Sissy Spacek’s portrayal of Carrie was great especially with her innocent looking face that suddenly turns into some revenge seeking telekinetic girl all because they ruined her prom. Gasp!! It was the same with Chloe Moretz’ portrayal, but there’s something about Spacek’s portrayal that just seems a little creepier.
I am and will never be a fan of horror movies (despite my birthday being on Halloween) but this version gives a fresh take on the story and a new generation will get to relive the story of Carrie. Plus, it doesn't hurt Ansel Elgort stars in it too.
