Today’s movie is Carrie. That opening scene in the locker room always catches me off guard, what with the nude teenagers frolicking about, boobs and bush on full display. There’s a lot of ridiculous stuff, like a group of teenagers going to a pig farm to slaughter pigs and collect their blood. But there’s a lot of great stuff, like the use of that pig blood. The cast is great. I really enjoy this movie.
There are some differences between the book and the movie (audiobook is great btw). The movie characters are all way more attractive than their book counterparts. Carrie’s powers and the mother’s character were toned down. Different endings. But both are pretty great. The movie is definitely a classic and one of my personal favorite Stephen King adaptations.
