Carrie & Other Scary Movie Favourites

by Kim - 1 Comment(s)

Everyone’s favourite supernatural misfit prom queen is back! The brand new remake of Carrie, the frightening 1976 film about a tormented, telekinetic teenager is sure to be a scary thriller hit this fall. Centred around the daughter of a domineering, ultra-religious and mean old mum, this remake is sure to be the scary thriller hit for fall. The film is based on the original book by Stephen King. Written when he was living in a trailer, Carrie was his first published novel and helped make him a household name in horror. In the spirit of the season of All Hallow’s Read, get ready for homecoming by getting a hold of Carrie here!

Trivia: Some of Carrie derived from Stephen King's own experiences as a teacher. The name of the high school is Bates High, a reference to Norman Bates from another horror classic, Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho!

A lot of great horror movies are based on even scarier books. One of our favourites is the original Bram Stoker's Dracula, which has been adapted for film over a dozen times (take that, Twilight!). And, All Hallow's read would not be complete without paying homage to the event's creator: Neil Gaiman's original Coraline is every bit as much creepy as the movie - maybe even a little bit creepier.

It's not too late to enter our All Hallow's Read giveaway - read this post and leave your contact info in the comments to win two scary books: The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman and Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake. The draw is October 25th so enter now!
