Don't Waste Your Time On 'Carrie'

Don't waste any money on the new remake of Carrie. Word is it sucks big-time. For one, I guess we were lied too. I had my reservations when I first heard about it because Chloe Moretz is just too pretty to play Carrie. Then I heard they were going to be doing it closer to the book. Turns out that was a lie. It's not closer to the book. It's just a remake of the original 1976 movie, and no where near as good as the original movie at that. Then the word is the CGI is so obvious and horrible that it takes away from the movie and makes the deaths comical. The whole blood dumping scene is supposed to be CGI as well. One guy who saw it said the CGI is so bad the fake blood bounces off of her. Sucks. Also, in this movie they made Carrie do all kinds of things that she's not supposed to be able to do. I will put that in the spoiler below.

So in this version Carrie not only is she telekinetic but she is also is psyshic and can tell Sue Snell is pregnant and what gender the baby is. Instead of using her eyes like Sissy Spacek did, Chloe uses her hands and feet, waving and stomping like she was a witch or a superhero. In fact, people are saying they expected Prof. Xavier to pop in and make an appearance. Did I mention that in this movie Carrie can fly? LOL  Carrie also busts pavement open with one stomp and rips up roads. A good percentage of the scenes in the trailers did not make it to the movie. Most of the scenes that were cut involved  death scenes and the destruction of the town. Those who have seen the movie say there really isn't any scenes of her destroying the town at all in the movie. Instead of keeping to the ending of the book like we were led to believe the director was going to do, they instead use the ending of the original movie. Supposedly Carrie's headstone cracks at the end as if her power is still alive.

Save your money. Read the book then rewatch the 1976 movie with the wonderful Sissy Spacek. The 2002 made-for-t.v. version with Angela Bettis is also good.
