First Look at the CARRIE Remake Trailer
Why Remake Carrie in the first place she asked!
Carrie is arguable a perfect horror film, why remake it. Its pedigree is practically perfect: Written by Stephen King (Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, The Shining). Directed by Brian De Palma (Scarface, The Untouchables, Carlitos Way). Starring Sissy Spacek (Cola Miners Daughter, JFK, The Help) co-starring Pipper Laurie (Children of a lesser god, Twin Peaks) and John Travolta ( Saturday Night Fever, Face Off, Get Shorty).
Whatever the case may be Carrie has been remade starring Chloë Grace Moretz (Kick Ass, Hugo and Dark Shadows) as the title role of Carrie. Chloë has already had some pretty amazing roles and at the age of 15 she has already worked with some “A List” actors and held her own on screen with them. Despite her Lolita appeal I feel that Chloë Grace Moretz has amazing presence and possesses very good acting skills that will take her far. Say what you want about Hollywood remaking the film but hold off passing judgment on Chloë til you see the movie.
Having said that I can’t wait to see this movie, I love Julianne Moore (Hannibal, The Big Lebowski, Boogie Nights) and I think that she will do well as Margaret White. Julianne will bring a sense of cold beauty that she possesses to the character of Margaret White. Even though Carrie is the main character in the film “Mama” runs a close second and in some cases uses bigger strokes and should be given wide berth.
I hope the combination of these two wonderful actresses plus the direction of Kimberly Peirce (Boys Dont Cry) will breathes new life into this already ‘practically perfect” movie. Whatever the case is…they will have my ass in a seat and my money in their pocket.
The Movie Deets
Written in 1974 by Stephan King, Carrie not so much a horror movie as it is a movie about about mutant revenge…lets face it. She is a TK and her TK Powers come at the stroke of puberty! (in the movie, not the book…don’t jump my shit) Ok fine, let me back up.
Carrie White is a very shy girl who is socially awkward and has a hard time making friends. High school is bad enough as it is, now throw in the fact that you are not popular and that you just had one the most embarrassing social faux pas happen to you… in front of everyone at school. We all know kids are mean…but give them a little fuel add a spark and they can a lot of damage. Now, just for kicks lets throw in “Mean Girls” who taunt, tease and trick you and who go out of their way to make your life a living hell.
Thank God for your home life, huh? WRONG AGAIN!
As if school wasn’t bad enough for poor Carrie White, throw in a crazy bible thumping, sexually repressed, menopausal freak-show mother, who calls your breasts “Dirty Pillows”. But wait there’s more, not only is mom nuttier than squirrel shit but she locks you in a “Prayer Closet” outfitted with creepy holy relics and forces you to pray til your sins are forgiven. Great, now your home life sucks just as much as your school life AND YOU’RE ON YOUR PERIOD TO BOOT!
You get invited to prom by the school hunk and you are stoked, only to be cock blocked by your own mother who won’t let you go as she drones on and on about sex and sin. Of course at this time you use your powers and get out of dodge and its off to you go to the prom. Prom, at last, the last chance you have to finally fit in with the “In Crowd!” What is the “In Crowd” you ask…it means the Popular Kids. <smh>
Finally at the prom you start to feel like a normal girl, then BAM out of no where you get doused in buckets pigs blood!
THATS IT! “Thats all I can stands, I can’t stands no more!” Poor Carrie SNAPS and uses her TK Powers ( Telekinetic Powers: the ability to move things with your mind) to take revenge on EVERYONE who ever treated you crappy…and I mean EVERYONE!
And finally, In the end Carrie finds peace..only proving the old adage that: “Life sucks, then you die!”
Now, that you know its a story about “Mutant Revenge”, its not that scary but a lil bit rad, right?
Ok, so why remake it if it was so perfect? Come on, Hollywood doesnt have a clever bone left in its body and has to rehash old movies. But lets face it…Hollywood has done that since the begining! That doesnt mean that I dont like remakes, it just means I understand the nature of the beast! Fish gotta swim and dogs chase cats…Hollywood rehashes films, just that’s what it does.
So stop your bitching already, its getting boring and you sound like an old person! Like I always say: “You can move with change on your feet or you can fight it on your knees…you choose.” Beside do you know how much of an ass you sound like by saying you don’t like something for not having seen it first? I’m just sayin’.
