It's gross to re-make this movie...they will never get it right...they never do...

1. The music or soundtrack will be totally wrong...
They'll try to manipulate your emotions with like studio rock or techno...instead of violens and errie sounds, like they did back then...

2. The actor/actesess will be shallow, there will be no depth of character...you will feel that they once did TV commercials...

3. To make up for poor acting, they will focus more on 'sex appeal'...instead of character traits...that's typical of all new horror films which are simply light porn mixed with horror...
recipy for a cheezy 'B' type movie...

They should leave it alone...

I know how new directors and producers think...they think 'cheap' and 'fast food'...

Big production over quality...

'Oh...we know what todays young people want'....no you don't...

You will simply be destroying another classic film which is good as it stands...

The original Carrie movie did not take short cuts...the re-make will...they always do...

They substitute background development of characters, for cheap fast thrills...korny effects...just to make people jump...instead of think...

The original Carrie was scary cause it made you think...they didn't rush it alone...

Nor did they distract viewers with cheap pick-a-model actresses who can't act...

this re-make will fall into the same trap that all re-makes do...

What a shame...
