DVD | Carrie

I won't show a trailer of this movie. You will just have to watch this. Or watch a trailer on YouTube or IMDb. Because the trailer is actually telling a bit too much. The movie is based on the Novell by Stephen King. If you are already familiar with the work of Mr. King then you also might now how the movies based upon his work are. Carrie is no exception. Altough I found this movie better than Children of the Corn or It. The main roll goes to ChloŽ G. Moretz, who has proven already that she is born for this kind of movies. In this movie she is playing Carrie White. Everyone ignores her, calling her a freak, and even mock her when she doesn't know which teenage situations are coming...

But this is all about to change, her mother and her are believers. However Carrie turns away from that believe and want to be like the others. Normal, without a believe. This is even more the case when she discovers she has a gift. However the mocking continues. There are only a few children who disagree on the mocking and want to help her. So they let her even go to the prom. But Prom will never be the same again...

This novell from Stephen King was already made into a film in 1976. And again in 2002. The 1976 one is different from this one, the way it ends. The 2002 version is a modern version of the 1976 film. This one however is really re-done. So if you like a good solid thriller/action then watch this...
