First Comes the Blood

Carrie and the Horror of Female Sexuality


DePalma's film was excellent, but I've often thought the only way to improve upon it would be the follow the format of Stephen King's novel, which is written as an epistolary story. If I were going to remake it, I would follow the format of Koji Shiraishi's "Noroi", which is done in a documentary format of the 'lost footage' variety, a lá "Cannibal Holocaust" and others. Doing it that way would allow a filmaker to make an exceedingly faithful adaptation of King's novel.
