Opinion

From Library Staff

i like stephen king, okay?

As if high school isn't terrifying enough, a girl with telekinetic powers seeks revenge on those who've hurt her. Fun fact: Carrie was the first ever film adaptation of a Stephen King novel!

Carrie is an unpopular student who's been humiliated by her classmates too many times. A supernatural horror based on the novel by Stephen King.

You got corn syrup on my psychic!

You got psychic in my corn syrup!!!

Final Results: S++ Rank, Top Honors. Sissy Spacek embodies the awkwardness of a teenage outcast in a bloody romp through hell. The 1970s flavor in this movie is a riot. You'll cringe, feel unease, laugh, and be shocked.

This is a good remake, though it's a little unbelievable that Chloe Grace-Moretz would be an outcast.

Classic horror flick. Sissy Spacek is creepy as hell as the titular character. It's a little corny compared to horror movies now given the advancement of special effects and movie scores but it's still worth a watch.

Competent, but pointless remake of the 1976 horror film, based on the Stephen King novel. Chloe Grace Moretz takes the lead role, Julianne Moore plays her monster of a mother, Ansel "Baby Driver" Elgort (typing that doesn't make his name seem any less fake) is her hunky prom date, Portia Doubleday is the mean girl, and Judy Greer is the sympathetic gym teacher. Aside from updated special effects, it's almost exactly the same as the original. Despite a female director, it doesn't fell particularly feminist. Moretz was also in remakes of "Suspiria" and "Let the Right One In."

I loved this book by Stephen King, a young teenager who possess a great power with her mind. One night at her senior prom, Carrie had been embarrassed one too many times. She then takes her power to the very abrupt level, taking out all her anger on the ones who have bullied her. You read along to discover her uncontrollable fury and destruction. This movie is so different as you go from the scary religious mother to the pig’s blood. I thought all the different idea were unique, I wonder where he comes up with all these ideas. Overall an amazing book and would recommend reading it for any ages. 4/5 Stars @Effystonem at the Hamilton Public Library of the Teen Review Board.

You're welcome for bringing this classic to the library. The only reason this film gets a four and a half stars, is that the music score is rather annoying,. Other than that, this film is really good, its scary, slightly humorous, and almost everyone was fun to watch. The exception is John Travolta; I could not take this guy serious even if he was going all Pulp Fiction on me. It can be corny at points, and is severely dated in a few more, but still holds up overall. I don't know about you, but I think I'll skip the prom this year.

Chloe Grace Morentz owns her performance, Julianne Moore follows through, and Ansel Elgort gives an excellent breakout performance. Also, the updates to modern day are seamless to the point you wouldn't know the book and original film were made in the 1970s. However, the effects are kind of silly in the climax, the side characters don't feel that deep or developed, it can't decide whether it wants to be a repeat of the original or it's own thing; last and by no means the least, it isn't violent enough. Numerous setups for great violent deaths, and yet they cut away before the deliver. That's this movie in a nutshell' great setups, but doesn't follow through. I still like it and will watch it occasionally, but is inferior overall when compared to the original.

Aside from being really stupid, it's actually a pretty awful movie. (I didn't remember it being that absurd, over done, with midland or less writing & production quality, when I was a teen. Funny how that works... : )
Don't waste your precious time on this, unless you really want to see Nancy Allen & Sissy SpaceCase in their 20s, nude.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: 9/10 Contains scenes that could make people feel unpleasant and upsetting. The film has a very dark tone to the material that raises the intensity and could be frightening. Especially towards the end, the rage, Carrie shows during prom and Chamberlain is very frightening and may shock people.
