Carrie – Tv Version (2002) Review:
This TV adaption of Brian De Palma’s masterpiece Carrie is a surprisingly good one. In the same way that Sissy Spacek made the original film unforgettable, Angela Bettis (May, The Woman, Toolbox Murders, Sick Girl, etc.) plays here a wonderful Carrie. As in “May” or “Sick Girl”, Angela is just perfectly suited to the role of the psycho young woman.
This TV adaptation sticks to the original but allows itself a little freedom, like the fact that the story is told through a police interrogation. Being a TV, it is far from perfect, but it has a bad-ass final scene nevertheless. Seeing some modern special effects, even if they are not memorable, also brings an appreciated touch of modernism to it. Overall, I was conquered, and I would recommend it to all those who enjoyed the original.
