I saw the movie a couple of years ago and I thought it was ok, nothing that special. Not even a really good horror movie. So I never bothered to read the books. Well that was a mistake because the book is so much better than the movie…well that’s a hardly surprising, movies are seldom better than the book. Carrie is not a horror book in its essence, yes it has elements of horror, but mostly the book is just a tragic tale of girl who finally snaps, who after years of abuse, both at home and in school just finally just not going to take it anymore and she has power.
So she unleash hell. Big Time!
