CARRIE in a good transfer, but no extras to speak of...
22 July 2014
Excerpt: Stylized horror classic by Brian DePalma get an okay Blu-Ray treatment. I disagree somewhat with the official review of CARRIE here. The transfer shows fine detail throughout and, although grainy in many scenes, I always prefer this authentic look to a heavily DNR'd treatment.
Excerpt: I saw this in other formats. I am only reviewing to say, that this movie is way better than the remake. I saw the remake in theater, and man the mother was so annoying, that I almost left the theater. I would get this Blu-Ray over the remake one any day.
Excerpt: I dont like remakes very much, in fact I avoid them when I can, but there are a few I do like and this is one of them. I think this Carrie is much better then the original. PQ and Audio is very good and the extras were also good. This was a blind buy and in the end worth it in my book.
Excerpt: First off, this is not a horror film at all. It is a movie set in this time which is about high school and bullies. Today all we hear about on the news is about how someone bullied another student to make them kill themselves or shot someone in school or whatever.
Summary: If this is not one the worst remake/films of all time, I don't know what is. Awful acting, Poorly done special effects that are far too fake looking and unrealistic, and it's a pretty much a shot for shot remake of the original with nothing different about it aside from a **** cast.
