Carrie (2013)

Know her name. Fear her power.

When I first heard they were doing a Carrie remake I was extremely skeptical.  I never thought anyone could portray the characters as well as Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie did, but I was wrong.  Not completely wrong, I still think the 70s version was better, but Chloe Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore did a great job with their portrayals.  And if you've been living under a bridge for the last 40 years here's a brief synopsis.

Carrie is about a girl, named Carrie, who is bullied at school for being different.  She experiences her first period and thinks she is dying, sounds about right.  Unfortunately, her classmates are evil and upload the incident to the internet, this part only happens in the new version.  That takes her to her breaking point and she realizes that she has telekinetic powers.  Then we have one of the most infamous scenes in cinematic history, Carrie getting pigs blood poured all over her at Prom.  Then she kills a bunch of people, and the movie ends with a semi-open ending. 

There are a few differences, most notably that this movie is set in current time, and the hairstyles are a lot better.  In this one Carrie seems to know about her telekinesis power more than in the original and there is more solid evidence that Sue is indeed pregnant at the end of this one, instead of it being a dream.  Overall, this movie is one of the better remakes to come out in the last few years and I hope future remakes come out this good.  Tell me what you thought of the movie in the comments, on Twitter (@SilentToHughes) or on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/SilentToHughes)

Hope you all have a great night!
