It's starting to feel as if October of this year is just hanging around the calendar to torture us. Not only is that the time that the fourth season of "The Walking Dead," will reappear on AMC and start not really answering some questions about us, it's the time that we're going to finally be able to watch CARRIE remade and updated.
While I love with a deep and unabiding (I know it's not a word, but it should be) passion for the original CARRIE, one of the handful of horror movies I sneaked a viewing of behind my disapproving parents' backs, the film can use an upgrade. Because the beauty of the story is that it can be retold in modern times and not have all that much be different from back in the 1970's, when the book was written and the movie was made.
With the religinutcases picketing funerals, how far fetched is it to believe that there's probably a real life woman out there (originally played to perfection by the incredible Piper Laurie but I'm sure will be done well and good by Julianne Moore - and don't even get me started on the awesomeness of Judy Greer being the PE teacher because I'll just piddle) forcing her daughter to live to a bizarre moral code, thinking the devil's alive in her. Who else to play that out better than Chloe Grace Moretz who has already proven that she can slather her talent all over a remake, especially when she's playing a demonic character?
They did this to us last year, the discussion of a movie to be released much later in the year, when the cast of DJANGO UNCHAINED headed down to Mexico like Julianne and Chloe did this week. It worked for the QT Clan, should do wonders here as well.
