The 1970’s brought many horror hits, including Carrie (written by Stephen King) to the big screen. Starring Sissy Spacek and directed by Brian de Palma, the film immediately became a classic of terror, resulting in the creation of the sequel: Carrie 2. The amount of acclaim the two movies received tilted the box office in such a way that it set a trend for horror flicks for years to come.
With that in mind, movie magic is back once again as this classic tale of horror is brought back once more. Blair Stover has more on the 2013 remake of Carrie below.
The 2013 remake has taken a twist by adding a beautiful new face to the mix and stars Chloë Grace Moretz, a young actress who surprised the world with her performance in the film Let Me In. She also broke out in the Kick Ass movies as well. Carrie also stars Julianne Moore, the Oscar-nominated actress, who plays the mother of Carrie.
The premise of the movie, as you may already know, centers around the story of a young girl with telekinetic powers, who suddenly realizes she has these powers after being upset one too many times. After suffering the weight of ridicule from her peers, the bloody revenge of Carrie centers around this tense and stylist masterpiece of horror by director Kimberly Peirce. Stars Chloë Grace Moretz, Alex Russell, Julianne Moore, Portia Doubleday, Judy Greer, Ansel Elgort and Gabriella Wilde.
While it is often said that classics should be left intact, and history has confirmed this fact, the remake of Carrie might be one of the exceptions, taking the film to a whole new dimension. Die hards may be unhappy with the remake, however, those looking for a fun new take on the movie will enjoy it.
