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: As one of my all time favorite movies, I, like alot of other people on this site, thought the bluray looks just fine.

Summary: I really enjoyed watching the movie.I really liked Piper Laurie, she is really caring and friendly. Even though she hated Carrie White she still cuddled her and that.

Summary: "Carrie" is a melding of two great artists, in this case, Stephen King, who wrote the novel and Brian DePalma, who directed the film. This is a tense, exciting thriller that is also a sturdy character study. It's hard to make a film that can accomplish both, but DePalma does it.
Summary: Having loved Sissy Spacek in 'Carrie' for many years I wondered if the remake would be better or, like many remakes of classic films, total pants.
I must admit that this time, doing a modern remake has totally worked as the filmmakers followed the original 'Carrie' pretty closely.
