One of the better remakes
4 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first heard of carrie through a 100 scariest movies list. I heard only about the telekinesis stuff and the prom scene. I first saw the original classic with sissy spasick (can't spell) and the next day and I honestly wasn't disappointed. The only problem with this film is it falls in the trap of crappy 2000-2006 cgi effects. The original I admit is a great film but it falls in the trap of weird choices in music (for example when the gym teacher is making the girls exercise). And the remake has some illogical scenes in it like when carrie is being revived with CPR. But if that's the biggest flaw than that really shouldn't be a problem. It goes into a lot of depth with the characters and it gives tommy a better personality than just the nice guy who takes her to prom. In both films it's evident he cares but in the remake he seems to care more. I can't explain it. And billy Nolan he is also a problem. In the original he is just stupid and as bonehead a guy as you would ever see. Whilst in the remake, he is freaking insane and he seems to change the personality by a lot. It's like the Texas chainsaw remake and the original. Both are so different and great in their own way. So both films are great and don't trash this one for being the remake of a classic.
