The Remake Of Carrie

I'm not a fan of scary movies nor was I a fan of the old Carrie but I absolutely hate remakes! First of all remakes of the originals never come out as well. It always seems like the director is trying to keep the important scenes and similar lines but it always looks cheesy like a really bad knock off. Carrie is a 2013 American supernatural horror film. It is the third film adaptation of Stephen King's 1974 novel of the same name, though MGM and Screen Gems, who are producing the film, employed a script that reportedly more faithful to King's original novel.

In the first movie the mother was creepy and terrifyingly religious! I was afraid to be Carrie but in the new version the mother from the beginning always seemed weaker then her. Carrie's powers were more evident in the remake from early on. In the original she doesn't realize her abilities until later on in the movie. They changed a lot of the scenes that made the original creepy movie creepy. Chloe Moretz did an excellent job trying to live up to Sissy Spacek's original performance in the 1976 version directed by Brian De Palma. I will say the new Carrie has great visual effects and explosions that make Carrie's powers seem more real and believable.

It's the same movie just not as good I think. Some people enjoyed it like modern scary movies they have a good finish a big bang and the audiences tolerate them. For me the entire story needs to be good from start to finish.
