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: 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: Carrie is a magical horror movie, not only it contains most of the scary things a good horror movie needs but it also spices it up with some moral. In fact, it shows what does bullying lead to. There isn't a lot of nudity which is rare these days so I recommend you to watch this beast.
Summary: Based on Stephen King's novel, "Carrie" and the same name as the original in 1976, the new version of "Carrie" is about a poor innocent girl who has telekinesis and she went to a prom until those mean bullies are making a prank to her and she controls her power to destruct the entire high school...
Summary: Loved the original and when I heard that this movie was being done, I had mixed emotions rushing all over me. After watching the movie, I knew that I have just watched a decent movie but if you think about it more, you will think that it was a bit pointless on making the movie.
Summary: Filmgoers who are not interested in seeing a modern remake of Carrie are equally unlikely to be won-over by Peirce’s effort since it tells (mostly) the same story without dramatically improving anything but the onscreen visuals.
Excerpt: PQ: While fairly grainy throughout the entire film, there are scenes where the grain is almost nonexistent. The grain does not distract from enjoying the film. The picture is surprisingly good for a film from 1976.
