  1. Lol…spoilers…really?????

    Spoiler alert..it is exactly like the original 1976 version…exactly…lol

    • I get your point but as a 29 year old male, I still haven’t seen the original Carrie, nor have I read the book so beyond the infamous prom scene, I really know next to nothing about the story.

      • but thats the point…everyone knows about the prom scene….it is the major plot point and nothing has changed…

        • It’s a fair point but, we look at something like this with an err on the side of caution approach. Nothing has changed but not all of the details of the film are known to viewers who might not have seen the original. Sure the prom scene is in the ads and known but the fact that Carrie is “killed” or that she crucifies her mother are still surprises for less-familiar viewers.

          What’s the harm in splitting off a post so that we can try to preserve their experience as much as possible?

    • Well its better than that and a bit more streamlined, but yeah it hits the same notes though updated to today.

    • I would strongly suggest starting at the beginning.
      1.Read ‘Carrie’ by Stephen King
      The book is far more graphic with more intense imagery than
      any of the films. The audio book is just as compelling.
      2.See the first film ‘Carrie’ by Brian De Palma
      This was one of Brian De Palma’s greatest masterpieces,
      as he is known for deep, thought provoking imagery and
      an extremely suspenseful use of the camera. The
      ‘crucifiction’ scene in his film bestows a very intense
      impact.
      3.See ‘Carrie’ in theaters now. The story is being delivered
      to a new generation that is treading on ground already traveled.

  2. Spoiler, lots of blood, from menstrual to pig to enemies.

  3. You know what was weird, why did that kid in the library show her how to click to full screen on youtube, who ever uses full screen?
    And she probably wouldnt know how to click out of it.

    • Hey, I use full screen..lol

    • I watch at least a half hour of news related videos plus more on youtube every day and always use full screen if i’m not somewhere i can send it and watch on my tv

  4. We all know the delightful bedtime story of Carrie and the Pig’s Blood Prom: strange, loner girl experiences first bloodbath period (literally and figuratively) at school and becomes the target of tampon-slinging ridicule from her merciless peers. Charitable popularite Sue repents and urges hot-stuff boyfriend, Tommy, to bring Carrie to the prom, where she receives an unexpected swine viscus shower and promptly employs telekinesis to exact a wrecking ball of bloody revenge. It’s squarely within the horror genre, but it’s never really been a scary movie. The subject is far more unsettling and grotesque, a step back from jumpy frights and into demented psychology. Kimberly Peirce attempts to navigate the open can of worms within that tender, twisted psyche but stops short, pursuing the studio-brandished sheen of an American Hollywood horror remake.

    • Thank you Slag.

  5. This was a perfect example of how to make a totally useless ” reboot ” . What a total waste of time and money , just spare yourselves both and netflix the original .

  6. What happened to the flashback of Carrie as a little girl, when she caused the (first) rain of stones to come down upon the house??? It’s a great scene in the book and I really thought that it would be included in the movie, as well as Carrie’s destruction of the entire town on her way home from the prom. Also in the book are other points of view about prom night: newspaper and magazine articles, investigative hearings, court transcripts, etc. It would’ve been awesome to include so much of that material from the book, but what we got instead was Brian De Palma’s version (which I love) all over again, but nowhere near as good. Chloe and Julianne were great, but overall, I was disappointed with this version.

  7. Spoiler: When her hand comes out of the grave at the end, you WILL jump.

  8. I thought the performances were great and if someone hasn’t seen the original they will probably enjoy this. It is so close I have a hard time accepting the need for it. I think two changes would have been enough to make it worthwhile.

    1) When Carrie picks up the gym teacher at the prom show her “crushing” her (like an invisible hand), at least show bruising if not actual breakage of bones.

    2) After Carrie tells Sue she’s pregnant she should have told her she is so happy for her and asked if she was happy. Sue nods yes, Carrie smiles and at that point snaps Sue’s neck. Carrie then looks at Mom’s corpse and tells her that Sue died happy and she kept the baby from hurting Sue like Carrie hurt her mother. Then she brings the house down. If you need the final scene the gym teacher would be able to stand in for Sue.

    Just my two cents.

    • That’s a…twisted ending man. My jaw actually dropped reading your comment. That certainly would have been really shocking to see.

      • Well I figure if you want to remake the movie you ought to make it worthwhile. I don’t think it would make Carrie any more evil, just a bit more psychologically damaged. It would also give people something to remember, as it is I can’t think of one moment that really stands out as something I’ll remember a month from now…

  9. Did Tommy really die from the bucket to the head. Please tell me that’s a departure from the book and original Carrie. I gotta know.

    • To Nick B,

      If I remember correctly (it’s been a long time since I read the book) Tommy was only knocked unconscious by the bucket in the novel, and died later in the fire.

      In the original movie, I’m assuming he was just unconscious by the bucket because several people are actually trying to pick him up and carry him to safety. Why would they do that if he was already dead?

      But yeah, in the new movie, it looks like the bucket actually kills him. When he drops, he’s all bloody and his eyes are still open. He just looks…well, dead.

      • Thanks Ricardo. I thought the movie was good enough and would say I agreed with the SR review, but Tommy getting killed by the bucket is unfortunate.

  10. What I don’t get is WHY Carrie hurts her gym teacher.. She was the only person there for her the whole time?? I’m just confused and came to this page to find answers. :\
