It was a loooong time since I watched the original Carrie movie. I was never a real fan of the original. I thought it took too long to get going and the ending was too tragic. But then, I was rather young when I watched it. Yesterday I sat down and watched the remake.
I have to say that I found it surprisingly good. Sure, the actual story of the movie with the poor girl being bullied by these school assholes, or in particular one asshole, cannot be said to be a story that really appeals to me. It is a rather depressing and frustrating story to say the least. It is a movie that, I myself at least, watched for the outbreaks of telekinetic special effects.
Having said that, I think that both Chloë Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore made commendable performances. Especially Julianne Moore who really made me riled up and squirm from frustration in my seat when she got started with her insane religious nonsense.
A remake is of course always at somewhat of a disadvantage in that you already know the general story and thus pretty much know what is going to happen. Thus I liked that they had splattered outbursts of telekinetic powers (= special effects) fairly liberally also in the early parts of the movie. I do not remember that Carrie was showing very much of her powers until the very end in the original. For me this made the movie more interesting to watch as it would have been both boring and frustrating if it had been nothing more than the bullies, and Carrie’s crazy mother, harassing Carrie until the very end.
The end, well I still think it is a rather sad one. I would have been much happier if Carrie would have gotten her revenge and somehow survived but then, that would have been too much of not-following-the-book instead so I guess I have to live with the depressing ending.
On the whole I am positively surprised by the movie. It is a remake that adds modern flavor and special effects without destroying the general look and feel of the original.
In this remake of the 1976 cult horror classic, Director Kimberly Peirce tactfully repaints the repressed and bullied and telekinetic Carrie (Chloe Grace Moretz) exacts revenge upon her fellow prom-nighters. Julianne Moore seizes the day as Carrie’s fundamentalist and demonically cruel mother
Carrie’s New Power, Sloppy CGI
IMDb calls this a “reimagining” (no such word in dictionary) instead of a “remake.” That’s just plain silly.
IMDb also credits Stephen King as the author of the original novel which the actual film credits DO NOT!
Actually this is more of a retelling of the classic 1976 ‘Carrie’ scene for scene line for line. “They’re all going to laugh at you!” Begging the question why do we need a SIXTH (by my count) remake of a film which is already beloved?
Because, Carrie needs to unleash her new supernatural power, really sloppy CGI! Worst of all they mix in real fire with bad CGI Playstation fire which of course only highlights how fake the CGI looks! Come on guys. Cavemen had fire. You don’t need to CGI it!
As negative as I’m being I actually did enjoy this film much more than I expected simply because it stayed about 95% true to the original. That’s right, they actually recognized what a great screenplay the original was and stuck with it.
The remake also corrects the major major problem which I and many fans had with the original, the slow as sxxx pacing! It was dragged out way to long. The remake gets to the point a whole lot faster. For example, Carrie crashes the boy’s bike about 20 minutes in in the remake. While the original took an hour and a half to get there.
The 5% change in the screenplay is mostly for the better and some things are spelled out more clearly. For example, the bully Sue Snell clearly does feel remorse for her actions in the beginning and clearly tries to save Carrie from the pig’s blood in the climax while in the original it’s implied that she set Carrie up to go to the prom with her boyfriend so she’d be voted prom queen and could be targeted with pig’s blood.
There is also a further explanation for why they chose pig’s blood and not paint or manure. In the remake a cell phone video of Carrie’s opening menstruation scene is shown on a big screen TV during the climax, hence the blood connection.
The screenplay changes for the worse are really the rest of the climax. I cannot imagine the climax in the original going any better. I loved the way the doors just open for her and then close behind her locking EVERYONE to burn to death as the deserve to for laughing at her covered in pig’s blood.
The remake goes overboard on CGI and silly levitation shots. Worse yet, there are survivors! There are fire trucks and ambulances and we see people being treated for injuries including Ms. Desjarin the gym teacher! WTF? The original was so much better! No one was able to call emergency services because everyone died!
The second biggest problem to the FX or rather lack there of is the casting of Chloe Grace Mortez. Not that she’s a bad actress, but she’s the prettiest girl in school and she’s being bullied? Come on! Sissy Spacek was great at portraying Carrie as the ultra nerdy shy girl whom would be bullied. We’re supposed to pity Carrie, but it’s hard to pity the prettiest girl in school. The remake could have easily solved this by casting an overweight or simply unattractive actress. But no, Hollywood couldn’t do that.
So all in all this REMAKE is worth a watch as it corrects the major pacing problem of the original and the production quality is strong except for the shoddy FX.
Also good to see a cameo by Hart Bochner playing a slime ball the way only he can.
Best of all, NO JOHN TRAVOLTA! That’s a major improvement.
Just watch the original instead…
Disclaimer: this movie can prove to be “scarrie” for those who are not a fan of the horror genre in general. For those of us who are, at least for me, this movie was everything but scary. First of all, when I heard that Chloe Moretz will be taking the role of Carrie, I was afraid that she might not be able to pull it off. In fact, the only thing I was pleased to hear was that Julianne Moore will be playing Carrie’s mother. She is a great choice for the role but the way she handled it, as well as everything else about this movie is – over the top. I could sense the idea of wanting to make a good remake of a classic, but in the end they just missed it… Chloe Moretz is a very good, promising young actress, I don’t even wanna talk about acting abilities of Julianne Moore, but they just didn’t seem real here. What makes the original Carrie truly disturbing is that it’s really slow paced. In its essence, it’s a drama about a teenage girl that is being deprived of an ordinary teenage life and experiences that come with it due to her fanatically religious and psychologically extremely questionable mother, to put it lightly. And yes, the plot is pretty much the same and everything, but the general feel is that they rushed it. As I said, everything is over the top, the acting is exaggerated, the relationships between the characters are unconvincing, but it’s biggest flaw is that you KNOW what’s coming. You have Carrie doing her telekinesis stunts from the very beginning. It’s almost as if she was practicing this skill from waaaaaay back, making pencils float around the room, flying the bread over to the toaster – you know, the usual stuff. So when the real thing was supposed to happen, the x was out of the equation making it quite frustrating to watch. It seems to me that, to make a remake of such a classic film you need to put so much thought and effort into every little detail to make it at least convincing enough, if you’re not aiming to top the original. This movie seemed like someone got the idea “hey let’s make a remake of some classic horror movie… hmmm… which one should we pick… the Exorcist? no, that’s to heavy. hey, how about Carrie? Sure! it has a young girl as a lead, we sure have plenty of those, and there’s a mother – oh, no, don’t tell me? are you thinking what I’m thinking? JULIANNE freakin’ MOORE!” And off they went with their brilliant idea and messed it all up. It was to hasty, it was thoughtless, unconvincing and at the end all I could to was to pick the flaws as I was comparing it to the original. I could go on and on about which aspects of the movie I disliked the most, instead I’ll just give it a 4/10 and never watch it again. The 2013 version, at least.
