Trailer: Carrie

Nothing could be quite as traumatizing as 1976’s Carrie, but I’m not going to lie and say the story doesn’t personally disturb me more than any other horror movie.

Forget Friday The 13th, Hellraiser, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Nightmare on Elm Street, and Halloween. Carrie breaks away from those films because the series of events (minus the telekinesis) commonly occur in real life. 

The re-made bathroom scene in Carrie, starring Chloë Moretz mimicking the awkwardness of Sissy Spacek and Julianne Moore playing the villain (for the first time in her career?), makes me twitch.

As if throwing tampons wasn’t enough, the bullies have video capabilities on their cell phones, so they can record the whole thing.

Still scary, even if I don’t quite remember Carrie having that much control or knowledge of her abilities.

Today is one of those days I feel especially great about not being in high school. Also grateful that my mother isn’t a God-fearing whacko who locked me in a closet for being different.
