I don't usually do horror flicks (with a few exceptions) but was curious to see the remake of the 1976 classic, Carrie. I had heard negative things about it but still wanted to see it.

I was surprised by how into it I got. It stuck very closely, I think pretty much scene by scene, to the original. They updated a few things, like adding cell phones into the harassment of Carrie. The story, the revenge of the disturbed, picked on kid, still has power. And the crazy, abusive, religious fanatic mother, played by brilliantly by Julianne Moore, was creepy as hell.
