Carrie Blu-ray Review

Carrie Blu-ray Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Jan 17, 2014
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

Fear her power! CARRIE unleashed the telekinetic horror as it debuted on Blu-ray and DVD. Read Kidzworlds review of the terrifying horror!

Carrie is a reimagining of the classic horror tale about Carrie White (Chloë Grace Moretz), a shy girl outcast by her peers and sheltered by her deeply religious mother (Julianne Moore), who unleashes telekinetic terror on her small town after being pushed too far at her senior prom.

Carrie is rated R for bloody violence, disturbing images, language and some sexual content. This movie might be too scary for younger kids, and we recommend running this one by your parents and not viewing with younger siblings.

Bottom Line

 The original Carrie was arguably one the scariest and most shocking horror films to come out during the 70's era, and its a story that is just as frightening today. It can be hard to make a movie about someone with "special powers" not seem cartoon-y, but Carrie's telekinetic powers are anything but goofy in this film, and we have to say, it's rated R for a reason - definitely check with your parents before buying the DVD/Blu-ray.

Even though its a remake, underneath all the gore and supernatural stuff, Carrie is a story about bullying and not fitting in - and the remake features the use of social media as a tool for bullying, giving it a modern edge and showing that it's still relevant. Julianne Moore plays Carrie's (Chloë Moretz) mother, and her portrayal of an unhinged religious mother steals the show a little, as do some of the actresses who play her tormentors. The DVD/Blu-ray has some great features, and a couple standouts are the alternate ending (which is an homage to the original ending) and the featurette "Creating Carrie." If you like scary movies, there's no dount that this one is for you!
