We’re continuing our horror film-themed Movie Friday for the month of October! Last week, we looked at the psycho-thriller classic, The Shining. This week, we’re focusing on Carrie, a horror remake set to arrive in theaters October 18.
If you haven’t been watching the multitude of trailers released for the film or have yet to see the original movie, then you’ll be one of the few who have yet to understand the plot. The story focuses on Carrie (played by Chole Grace Moretz in the 2013 film), a shy girl outcast by her peers and sheltered by her deeply religious mother (played by Julianne Moore). She discovers she has telekinetic powers, and when she’s pushed too far at her high school prom, unleashes her powers on the small town. Similar to The Shining, Carrie is also based on a novel by the ever-talented Stephen King. Seems like everything King makes is worthy of the big screen, don’t you think?
The original 1976 film was a hit and is loved by many horror genre fans. The 2013 remake is highly anticipated, but we’ll see if it can match the classic. (They can actually make the blood look real, instead of the bright red mess that was used in the original film, so that’s a plus.) Whether or not the remake lives up to our expectations, it will not change the fact that Carrie remains a permanent fixture of pop culture and has inspired designers and artists alike. In true Redesign Revolution fashion, we decided to seek out those very artists and designers who were inspired enough by the horror film to recreate the imagery of the film.
The original movie poster has an iconic look already. Carrie is covered in pig’s blood in a primarily red poster design. Many designers have followed the same color scheme and highlighted motifs of the film. Check out our favorite alternate movie posters below!
