Carrie is being remade and is released worldwide in December. The special effects used in the 1980´s film were phenominal, therefore I am expecting more greatness from the CGI department in this adaptation. I have to say after watching most of King´s screen adaptations, by far the scariest for me is ´Children of the Corn´which at the same time, is a bloody terrific picture.
Saw the trailer for 'Carrie' - meh.
I'm surprised you like the spec. effects in the original because my older-than-you son thinks the all old movie effects are lame.
