      Thumbs up 2 Cents EDITORIAL: The "Carrie" Remake

      I recently posted a piece on the main page about the "Carrie" Remake. Here's a small sample of the article...


      Let me start off first by saying, that I don't approve of remakes at all. Unless they're remakes of old 70's or 80's horror films. That had super-low budgets. Budgets so low, that they couldn't do the film justice. Or...that the movies were lambasted by critics and genre fans alike. Thus, a melding of both sides. Resulting in the overall label of...We Hated It. And of course, the scenario in which a movie came in the era before they started shooting movies in actual color. But with that being said, these days...you kind of have to just "tolerate", alot of these current remakes of old horror movies that are coming and going lately. The latest though, and possibly most insulting. Is MGM's remake of Stephen King's 1976 horror classic, "Carrie". Directed by Brian De Palma. Based on King's original story, and written for the screen by Lawrence D. Cohan...the movie centered on a young girl named Carrie White.

      Interesting article. I was hoping you'd touch on the question of how the remake would be handled with the bullying that goes on in today's society. Amongst teenagers. Carrie remake or not, would fit perfectly into that conversation. I don't think that much will be made of it though. I can't see MGM sinking a lot of money into this project. Just to have a sister-soulja moment.

      Question

      I believe the 2002 remake is the new measuring stick for MGM's remake of Carrie. The 2002 remake had awesome performances. Chloe Moretz is a good actress. But the question is who else will they cast? And will they be on her level?

      Nice pointing out of the pros and cons of the remake. Cons: There are only so many things you can do with a story like "Carrie" every 10 years or so. Pros: MGM making the movie is better than Dimension or Platinum Dunes making it.

      True. MGM might just go the route of a self-absorbed remake full of teen angst and stuff. But if they didn't, it'd be a culturally-interesting twist.

      There are plenty of good young actors out there to pair Chloe with. Just have to hope MGM goes with them. And not the current flashes in the pan.

      Platinum Dunes remaking "Carrie"? Intriguing. Dimension? Nightmarish!
