I wish they would leave this film alone...

People born after 1970 just don't know the art of horror movie making...

In the original movie, the emphasis wasn't on Carries 'sex' appeal or good looks.
Just the opposite...they cast a actress that personified a true living 'misfit'...or geek.

That's what made the movie work.
Todays producers and directors don't understand that concept...
So instead they always cast Carrie, modern Carries 'beautiful' outcasts...that look more like models than a true misfit...thus taking away the belivability of the premise.

No one who looks good and gorgeous, would be treated as an outcast in high school.

High school is a very shallow time...and for girls, looks are everything, and for guys 'bronze' is everything.

The new Carrie productions totally ignore that.

And instead try to keep viewers interested using visuals rather than content or story.

Bad writers do that. When they know they have a weak story they make up for it with visuals.

The scariest movies of he past didn't rely on the sex appeal of it's stars to draw an audience.

Most of the 'stars' of that day were just average looking...(when it came to horror)

gotta go...dumb audio add just came on...

How distracting...
