Carrie: Film Review

You will know her name. . . Carrie.

If you are an ardent fan of Stephen King you will know her pretty well. Based on his book of the same name, Carrie is the story of a high-school misfit, bullied by her peers and fiercely dominated by a religious fanatic mother. Kimberly Peirce’s Carrie starring Chloe Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore celebrates the 1976 classic thriller ‘Carrie’ by Brian De Palma.
In this new age recreation of the movie, Kimberly Peirce played well with the modern technology and special effects. Aimed at the current generation of movie goers, the film takes on the issue of cyber-bullying. Carrie’s female classmates capture a humiliating video of her in the locker room which goes instantly viral. The series of events later escalates into a more sinister plot on Carrie.
Why you must watch this film?
It has to be for Chloe Grace Moretz. After her roles as the deadly crime fighter in Kick Ass,  the tough little vampire in Let Me In and as the adorable French girl in Hugo, Carrie White, is strikingly different. Chloe has managed to shed her usual kickass onscreen avatar. She has commendably molded herself as the naive introvert Carrie White.  It was definitely a good attempt by her. Julianne Moore as Margaret was certainly creepy. She certainly was impressive as Carrie’s fanatically aggressive mother. Her tousled hair, orthodox costumes and almost no make-up made her character come to life.
Even though the movie is categorized in the supernatural-horror-thriller genre, nothing was horrifying. It was a plain, half-baked teenage drama with mean girls and queen bees. Thanks to modern special effects, we got to see some snapped cables in action, cars crashing and roads splitting into half. Sissy Spacek in the 1976 movie gave a brilliant performance as Carrie White, which earned her an Academy Award Nomination. Her blood-drenched look can still cause goosebumps. However, Chloe Grace Moretz failed to bring out that mesmerizing and haunting character.
Music composer Marco Beltrami scored quite well with the background music. However it failed to create an atmosphere of dread, which we usually experience in any other horror movies. The music was more melodramatic than eerie. 
Kimberly Pierce’s Carrie cannot be called the perfect horror film. But the director who broke out with Boys Don’t Cry, managed to capture the heartbreaking story of a teenager with loads of special effects of course!
