Carrie, 1976 & Now

Who doesn’t know the name Carrie?

Brian de Palma‘s adaptation of the Stephen King novel was released as a feature film in 1976, starring Sissy Spacek who scared the bejeezus out of us with those crazy eyes. Picture 5

Since then, there have been other releases: a sequel, a made-for-TV film, and even a broadway musical–none of which I can rave about. But this October, another adaptation is set to be released in theaters, and this time Chloë Grace Moretz gets to sport the pig’s blood.

  • Definitely better effects. Duh! I mean, just compare the two trailers.
  • More of Carrie White as well. Her thoughts, her feelings.

Looking forward to checking it out!

Whoa, did you see that last shot of Chloë covered in blood? Maybe she will be creepy enough after all.
