Saturday on the blog means Saturday Double Feature, right? Remember, the basic idea here is to take a movie that is out in theaters now, and pair it up with another movie from the 1980s or before. Sometimes the connection will be obvious, and sometimes it’ll be a little less so, but that’s part of the fun.
So, yeah, there’s a remake of Stephen King’s Carrie in theaters right now
and the temptation, of course, is to simply pair it with the original and call it a double feature, but the truth is, the new version hews so closely to the original that that would be bordering on unnecessary punishment. So what say instead we go with a different version of the “young girl with a secret power”? We can even stick with Stephen King adaptations to do it. From 1984, here’s Firestarter:
Any other ideas for pairing films with Carrie? if so, let me know below. And also let me know of any other upcoming movies you’d like to see “double featured”. Consider it, if you will, your chance to challenge me to come up with an interesting pair.
Until next time, Happy Viewing!
