I just got done watching Carrie 1976. As a kid it would scare the hell out of me but I wanted to sit down and watch objectively as an adult. Bar none one of the best movies of all time. There's something about letting your own imagination scare you... as opposed to the special effects that spell it all out in today's crap they call "cinema".

Just seems to me that this horror classic is believable know what I mean? That simplistic approach has been lost and I wonder if there will ever be directors like John Carpenter again. Unlikely with the dumming down of kids today. No imagination or creativity other than turning on an XBox or struggling with common core math it would seem.

There's nothing worse than a remake and although I'm aware Carrie was remade I would never waste my time.

I love this story too, the book and the original movie. In the book, written partly as a story and partly as a collection of clippings, Billy is more '50s. Some say Christine is Carrie for men.
