I have seen the original and the tv remake and ofcourse read the book and I have to say I am so impressed with this one. It is different and more modern than the original movie and the book but I very much liked it. I was so worried that they would have messed it up but I thought it was very well done and the acting was good.
I am a huge horror movie fan and personally I didn't find it scary but mind you I don't get scared easily when it comes to horror movies.
Make sure you watch the features because there is a alternate ending and other cool features.
I highly recommend this movie.
I give this 5 out of 5
Carrie is available in stores now.
