Carrie

I approached this movie with a certain amount of bias. I was aware of what would transpire during the climax of the film, (as in, seeing Carrie get covered in pig’s blood and subsequently murder everyone around her,) and having both read and seen movie adaptations of Stephen King’s “The Shining” and “Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption,” I was aware of the strange style of narrative that might progress throughout “Carrie.” Also, having seen that it is being re-made for 2013, and taking into consideration the recent trend of needlessly re-making perfectly fine films which has made it’s way through Hollywood, I assumed that the movie must be quite good. 1,076 more words
