In the novel, Margaret listens to the Tennessee Ernie Ford song "Let the Lower Lights Be Burning." Director Kimberly Peirce always planned to use the song, but when she discovered Julianne Moore could sing, she also had her croon the hymn. Moore's rendition was both in the film and prominently featured in the ad campaign. See more »
When Carrie pulls the lights down and sets the banner behind her on fire, a large moon falls down and catches fire as well. As it falls, wires and rigs are visible setting off the flames and not the banner itself. See more »
As a fan of the book and the original 1976 film my expectations for this were mixed. But just yesterday I saw this with two friends and loved every minute of it. It is very faithful to the original source material with a few modern takes on the story. There was also a bit more blood . Chloe grace moretz is not my first choice to play carrie but from what I saw she did very well. You feel for her and feel the pain she's going Through and understand why she does what she does in the end. Julianne Moore did especially well as the crazy religious bitch mother. The original was a little silly and over the top but Moore plays it so well it feels like I'm watching it for the first time. The prom scene is straight up awesome and has some very intense death scenes . Overall the film is very good And I highly recommend it.
