    Great! Thanks for the video! Yeah, I wish horror movies were getting Oscar buzz again; that’d be nice. I heard that in the final scene, Sissy Spaseck walked backwards and then the shot was filmed in reverse. Also, I heard that Stephen King’s wife found an unfinished manuscript of “Carrie” in a trash can and urged Stephen King to finish it. I love King and Carrie, so this was really fun to see.

    • Hyland

      October 20, 2015 at 4:42 am

      Yeah, Tabitha King supposedly made Stephen get that out the trash and finish the story. The rest is history. She also suggested that a vampire story would be scarier in a small town, rather than a big city like Stephen King originally thought up for Salem’s Lot. Good choices. Kudos

        Hey, if you want your profile deleted, just post legitimate/thoughtful/insightful criticisms of James & Mike Mondays (not trollish comments).

      • SeraphStar

        October 20, 2015 at 3:21 pm

        Mike HATES those kinds of criticisms, especially when they’re accurate/truthful.

      • SeraphStar

        October 20, 2015 at 3:24 pm

        Criticisms specifically related to the laziness/unoriginality of J&MM (and other unscripted conent), I mean.

        Referring to Smashole, only by the way.

        Seriously, instead of being obsessed about deleting your account, why doesn’t this ignorant, stupid little child just fucking LEAVE and not post anymore? That’s the same fucking thing. This stupid fucking little kid doesn’t NEED to hang around here. He could just go get a fucking life.

        In answer to your sheer amount of ignorance, I can’t leave, because it’s too fun to wreck other people’s lives (especially yours), I can’t delete my profile, so I would be here forever, anyways, and finally:

        Thank you SO much, BIG-LETTERED Rocket Man, for helping me through an easy point in my life. Without you, I could just be an average human being. Somehow, I feel greater than that.
        Because with you here, I feel complete.

        Of course, I’m not saying the filthy, disgusting, horrifyingly insane shit that you are! You’re just making this more nauseating for everyone else! HOW COULD YOU BE SUCH A KILLJOY, MISTER BIG LETTER MAN?!!

        October 20, 2015 at 1:39 pm

        Oh yeah, and my humility and wit come from an honest and sincere heart, with nothing being held back in how I look at things.
        I’m just here to show everyone that being on here isn’t quite as important as many think it is. It’s like many other things on the Internet: in the end, it’s just wasted time, when we could actually do our part to make the world a better place to live in, by saving the environment, and to understand each other more. THAT’S my role on this site: to make everyone understand that THIS WEBSITE IS THE SPAWN OF SATAN, AND HAS NO BUSINESS BEING ONLINE. Why obsess over the negatives, when we can focus on the POSITIVES? Like charity, volunteering, and sacrifice? I do all three things EVERY DAY, and I have no problem with it, whatsoever.
        Thank you once again for your support! I’m glad you understand what I’m saying! NO ONE ELSE DOES.

    James, since this movie deals with telekinesis and psychic powers, have you heard of Akira, from 1988? It’s an anime movie that’s also about psychic powers. It’s more of a thriller than horror, but it has a legacy, it’s a classic movie and is a landmark in Japanese animation. I thought that since it’s so important and well known, you would have gotten to it. Maybe not part as Monster Madness, but maybe another review (though it would be cool having it on Monster Madness).

    • October 20, 2015 at 10:08 am

      It’s not really something I could see James talking about. It’s a weird fucking movie. Well-executed, sure, and with a plot that can actually be followed, which is more than I can say for any other Japanese psychological horror story.

      But it’s ultimately just an extreme niche film, and not something that has had an appreciable effect on American horror, which is what James focuses on.

      • Andrew DiGiovanni

        October 20, 2015 at 12:29 pm

        I mean, James is into Kaiju movies, especially Godzilla. I just wondered why he hasn’t gotten into anime yet. He doesn’t have to review it as part of Monster Madness. It could be another review at another time of the year.

    • Smashole

      October 20, 2015 at 12:49 pm

      Nah, he hasn’t heard about ONE OF THE MOST WELL-KNOWN ANIME FILMS OF ALL TIME. Fuck, man.

        October 21, 2015 at 1:23 am

        Read his comment again, Smashole. He clearly stated “every day of the year”, not every year, like you so wrongly pointed out. I would call you a fucktard, but then I’d be debasing myself to your level.

        Maybe if you weren’t so quick to respond to people with your bullshit comments, you would’ve caught that.

    I also thought that the 2013 remake was quite good. It focuses less on the horror of her powers and more on the social commentary of the original novel of bullying, torment and anti-religious themes. It isn’t perfect but it still gets way too much hate that it doesn’t deserve.

    • Smashole

      October 20, 2015 at 12:55 pm

      It’s a film that NEVER deserved a remake. THAT’S why. Also, a nearly 50% film is NOT hated too much.

    Sissy Spacek is so incredibly effective in the finale. Her use of telekinetics by way of body gestures and eye directions is phenomenal! If you see how, in the remake, they make Carrie look like some student of Hogwarts. Its ridiculous and totally unscary. Her eye movements and flying make her look like Hermine!

    and what do you think of the remake? I mean, the most recent one.

    I’ve seen it and cannot remember a detail from it other than feeling disappointed by the tameness of it. Also, there wasn’t that much emotion in my opinion.

  • greedo

    October 20, 2015 at 2:21 pm

    Like you said, James, this is pretty good for one viewing. The ending scene is a bit disappointing to me, though. It’s a good one, but it kills the replay value for me. It was pretty cool that Travolta is in this, that was an added bonus for me.

  • GZilla2010

    October 20, 2015 at 5:39 pm

    I wish we could see The Mist as one final Stephen King adaptation movie for this year. That is one of my personal favorite books of all time, and the movie was done in good taste.

    • fanboyfilms

      October 20, 2015 at 9:17 pm

      Good taste? Up until the ending, I suppose. It was just added shock value that didn’t seem plausible or necessary. I know King liked it better than his ending but that doesn’t mean I have to agree with him.

      • GZilla2010

        October 21, 2015 at 3:27 pm

        The ending did what it set out to do. Slap you in the face and leave you with that terrible feeling. It was pretty damn effective if you ask me.

  • MadHitz

    October 20, 2015 at 6:05 pm

    Great movie! The 2013 remake also has some great acting in it, although the plot is pretty much a carbon copy of the original.

  • Sweetdeath

    October 20, 2015 at 8:17 pm

    To me, Carrie is probably one of the best novels to movie for King. It really got me emotionally invested as a teenager when I watched it and I even cried because I felt so bad for Carrie in the end.

    There were a lot of Stephen King movie adaptations. Compared to the books a lot of them where changed dramatically for time constraints even though some of them still got split into two parts on tv. I think the older Stephen King movies just like his older books hold up a lot better, although they did a good job with the mist.

    My biggest problem with this movie is the music. Everytime someone happens, you get that silly sound just to clarify it’s her power. Like come on, we know she’s psychic, we can guess it’s her doing all this shit!
