“CARRIE” 2013 Movie Review. The HORRORS return in this ghastly REMAKE.
“CARRIE” PRESS PREVIEW
You’d either love the CARRIE 2013 version, or hate it.
I enjoyed the film, despite the renewed dressings and crazy negative feed backs.
You just cannot please everyone.
In reality, it’s a decent remake of a 70s horror flick (directed by Kimberly Peirce) that is back after donkey years to rock the boat and to send delicious quivers down one’s spine all over again.
You’d need to switch off your suspension of disbelief mode though, to relish this one.
Hopefully you are able to detect an equal amount of adrenaline and testosterone, as compared with the original classic.
Yes, the mainstay is still payback, demonstrating that Karma still rules, that what you sow, you reap.
Let’s delve further into the plot:
This version of CARRIE is a reimagining of the classic horror tale about a school outcast called Carrie White (Chloë Grace Moretz).
She is brought by her deeply religious mother (Julianne Moore).
CARRIE’s adolescence has been a tough ride all the way.
She is emotionally humiliated and physically maimed by her so-called school friends whom she trusted.
The Moretz performance is, in many ways, admirable. She captures the pain and confusion of a young girl tormented by her classmates.
Moretz and Moore as the mother-and-daughter pair share an admirable chemistry and their performances shine during the movie’s major confrontation scenes.
The infamous prom scene, where Carrie goes horribly berserk using her psychokinesis powers, after getting doused with pig’s blood is rendered nasty and revengeful with a ghastly CGI polish.
This contemporary version of CARRIE is eerie, chilling and special effects laden.
Go watch it with an open mind.
REALLY KOOL, right?
