Carrie – remake better or worse?
This is Megan Robinson on E6 Radio, I am reporting about a film called Carrie which was
originally made in 1976 and described as “absolutely spellbinding horror movie”. It is story
of a young girl, Carrie White who doesn’t make friends easily; she has a very religious
mother Margaret. Carrie’s peers taunt her after an embarrassing incident and her teacher
disciplines them severely. They want revenge but this goes wrong when Carrie’s strange
mental powers take over during the school prom. The film made $33.8 million, and was
described as one of the best films in 1976. The remake film was released in October 2013 in
the United States. It has already made about $62,000,000.
I interviewed a few people who have seen both films and this is what they said…
Which film do you think is better, Carrie 1976 or 2013? Please tell me why you think so?
Do you notice any differences in the technology used in 2013?
In what ways do you think the horror aspect is different in both these films?
There was a sequel to ‘The Rage: Carrie 2’ was released in 1999. It received very negative
reviews and was a box office failure. What is your view of sequels to films?
