CARRIE (2013)

Hello you gore loving peeps, Holly here again with another movie for your deadly pleasure. This time around I am bringing you a reimaging of a 1976 classic. So grab your blood red wellies and umbrella and sit back for Carrie 2013. A real gore fest.

Director: Kimberly Pierce
Writers: Laurence D Cohen (screenplay) Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa
Cast: Julianne Moore, Chloe Grace Moretz, Gabriella Wilde

Synopsis:

A reimagining of the classic horror tale about Carrie White, a shy girl outcast by her peers and sheltered by her deeply religious mother, who unleashes her telekinetic terror on her small town after being pushed too far at her senior prom.

Review:

I always said the Carrie film should never be touched as it is one of those films that could not be made better…I was wrong. What they have done with this film is added a modern touch and it works brilliantly.
We have the very beautiful and shy Carrie (Moretz) who is bullied by her peers and labelled a freak, while all she wants to do is fit in. Then we have Her Mother (Moore) who is so scary at times, she is freakier than Carrie herself and would fit into the Gore family wonderfully.

But what about the film itself? Well of course we have the shower scene (I’m beginning to see a pattern with the films Uncle Kenny gives me). Bloody and the thought of ‘You don’t see this on tampon adverts’ comes to mind…However the modern twist has the girls filming it on their phones and you know it will end up on YouTube by the end of the day.

The relationship between Carrie and her Mother seems different too. Although still a strong religious theme, Moore is battling her own demons and mis-quotes the bible which Carrie picks her up on quite a lot. Also her Mother seems to show more affection to her daughter, even if she does lock her under the stairs often Harry Potter style. Yet by the end of the film you will have compassion for the mother and understand some of her actions.

Carrie seems to know she has her powers and has a certain control over them right from the start unlike the original where Carrie feared them at first until the end. The difference again is that Carrie uses it all to get back at the people that bullied her, yet shows so much remorse at the end that it reminds you again of the shy girl that just wanted to fit in.

You will love the prom scene and you know as soon as she gets covered in blood that shit is going to go down and it does. No one is getting away from this alive… apart from Sue who you have to think ‘You lucky sod!’
I don’t want to give too much away of the prom and ending scenes as I want you to experience them yourself because it will have you on the edge of your seats in half fear half rooting for her to get her revenge.

The tag line to it is : ‘You will know her name’ and believe me you will be talking about this for weeks.
Although they could have sorted it out in five minutes if someone had just thrown the poor girl some chocolate and all PMT would have been dealt with instantly.

I give this a 5 because there is so much blood in it you will want to get covered yourself.

Until next time readers Sweet nightmares
