There will be blood

I’m, basically, a wuss. I own more than one nightlight. And I can’t watch scary movies without a big, big pillow. So then the new remake of “Carrie” leaves me conflicted. On the one hand, awesome cast of Chloë Moretz, Julianne Moore, Judy Greer and more. On the other hand, so much scary. On the one hand, queer filmmaker and “Boys Don’t Cry” director Kimberly Peirce is at the helm. On the other hand, so much blood. On the one hand, classic story of bullying, power and vengeance. On the other hand, they already told this classic story of bullying, power and vengeance pretty well already. Also, have I mentioned the scary? But, in the end, my curiosity will overcome – I think – my fear and I’ll venture to see what one picked on girl and a bucket of pigs blood can unleash on the world. Someone get me a really big pillow. Happy Halloween, gals and ghouls.

I myself am a bit of a chicken when it comes to horror movies, but I will see this one. The first one remains in my memory as classic (even though I saw it late in the 90's while watching a lot of 70's movies.) and I think this one will too. They casted a real teenager in Grace Chloe Moretz who i feel is way talented and deserving of the role.

Even if I think this remake is not necessary I am looking forward to the prom

I don't think it's necessary and have no desire to see it. But I don't like horror films either. ;)
