Carrie (Trailer #1) Review
Now I don’t mind remakes, never really bothered me as long as they are done well, a good films a good. However I did get worried about this one getting remade because it is a favourite of mine, but after watching the teaser trailer it looked crazy good. It had blood and destruction, looked great. This trailer however has a few things I am not sure about. Starting with the bad, Chloë Grace Moretz still looks fantastic. Why is that bad Tim? Well she is supposed to be mercilessly bullied into a murderous rage, but I am just not seeing the same realism as in the first film. More later on. The good, Julianne Moore and Chloë seem to be pulling off that crazy ass mother daughter relationship. That’s a difficult couple of scenes to deal with but they seem to be doing the original film justice. As for the rest of the trailer please read on for my favourite scenes.
My Score: B-
Carrie White is a lonely and awkward teen who is constantly bullied at school by her peers, and beaten at home at the hands of her religious mother. But Carrie has a secret: She’s been blessed with the terrifying power of telekinesis; and when her peers decide to pull a prank on her at prom, they’ll soon learn a deadly lesson: If you play with fire, you get burned.
Top 5 Scenes
5. Meet The Bullies
Why do high schools in the US have nothing but 25 year old models as students? Madness! The scene is super iconic as one of the original films most dramatic moments. Not sure it’s going to be quite as realistic as the original but it looks pretty much the same.
4. Carries Naughty Room
Here poor Carrie having to cope with both a school full of bullies and a mother who is a strict puritan Christian and punishes innocent Carrie by locking her in a dark room. It’s the perfect representative of the trappings her mother holds on her life. It’s also the first scene showing Carrie with her powers.
3. Floating Her Room
Here Carrie is showing off her clear control over her Telekinesis, something never touched on in the original as it was more of an emotion reaction. I love anything Telekinesis related, flouting stuff with my mind, I totally want that!
2. Carrie Stopping Car Dead
Oh it looks so damn cool! I want to see that full scene and I want it to be an epic car smashing blood soaked destruction of the entire town! In the original we get a prom death and destruction but only see a small section of her leaving, this film however looks to extending this to total town destruction. Yeah!
1. Fire, Blood and Prom
Boom! That’s the scene we’re all going to see this film for. The bloodiest slaughtering of nicely dressed teens who lets face deserve it. Hate young people! Go Carrie, kill’em all! Okay lets end the crazy me rants. Chloë looks kick ass and I can’t wait to see this scene in its full. Look at that fire and blood.
Well that’s my views. Now what do you think about this newest trailer?
