Carrie (2013) (Blu-ray)

DVD Verdict
20 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Though I probably won't live to see it, I fervently hope in the next couple of centuries, Carrie White will take the ranks of Johnny Appleseed and Paul Bunyan as an American folk figure (though, it must be said, she's not quite the "hero" that Appleseed and Bunyan are). Her story, though, is perfect for mythologizing.

Carrie (2013)

High-Def Digest

  • Conclusion: I understand how painful it can be to see one of your favorite films remade, but it's worth noting that if you love something very much, no matter how good the remake is, it will never compare to the real thing. For those who know Brian De Palma's 'Carrie,' Kimberly Peirce's 'Carrie' will never live up to it – but that doesn't mean that it can't be an equal in the eyes of those who are either too young or cinematically inexperienced to know De Palma's.

Carrie Blu-ray Review

12 January 2014
  • Summary: Interviewed about the 2010 remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street , actor Jackie Earle Haley was asked why anyone would want to step into the shoes of Robert Englund in the iconic role of Freddy Krueger. Haley gave an interesting answer. He pointed out that the studio was going to remake the film whether or not he took the role. Why not see what he could do with it?

  • Excerpt: In fact, there's only a little exploitation in this newest adaptation of Stephen King's first novel which otherwise hews close enough to the book to absorb the best elements of its tragedy, but like Carrie (Moretz) herself, it flails about and ultimately fails in developing its own personality.

  • Excerpt: Near the climax of Kimberly Peirce's remake of Carrie , Margaret White (Julianne Moore), the wrathful and penitent mother of the titular telekinetic outcast, rationalizes her unthinkable actions by explaining that the devil can be killed, but will always come back for more, "so you've got to keep killing him again and again.

Carrie

BluRay Authority
29 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Carrie White (Sissy Spacek) is a young woman with little joy in her life, at home or in school. At home, her overbearing mother punishes her for everything, as well as berates her with verbal tirades, often for no good reason. She is abused all the time, sometimes beaten by her mother, sometimes locked inside a closet, never loved or cared for, to say the least.

Carrie (Blu-ray)

8 April 2014
  • Excerpt: Carrie lider av en hemsk historisk historia och det är Carrie från forntiden, nästan 40 år tillbaka i tiden. Och den filmen anses vara en klassiker - en som gjorde Stephen King till ett hushållsnamn, gav Brian de Palma tillgång till långa smörgåsbordet och gjorde Sissy Spacek till en ikon för sin tid och en skådespelerska som nominerats ett halvdussin gånger till Oscar och vunnit en av dem.

Carrie

Horror
30 July 2004
  • Excerpt: Een zeer goede film, niet zo zeer op het gebied van horror, maar het is meer de verhaallijn die de film zo goed maakt. Het horrorgehalte is niet zeer hoog en er is vrijwel geen spanning, maar het is meer schokkend wat er gebeurt, omdat je als je het verhaal niet kent totaal niet verwacht wat er gaat gebeuren. En als het dan toch gebeurt dan overvalt het je en dat maakt het toch wel een beetje eng.
