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.

She tried to kill Carrie but Carrie use her telekinetic powers, its also funny when Margaret White had to dress in that stupid black...
