OMG - the event to surpass all events is just around the corner. Have you all heard the news? No? Okay, okay, I might be a little ahead of myself here but there are rumours of a possible Carrie remake. You know, the pigs blood, the creepy eyes, the gym on fire? Basically, the ultimate bully-revenge movie is about to get remade!

The timing is perfect as this movie couldn't be any more relevant with all the anti-bullying movements going on around the country.
In theory, this is awesome. I mean, it's the best news since I found out Under The Dome might get the TV treatment. Carrie was the first Stephen King novel I read. When I watched that movie way back in the 90's, I had never experienced hype - or a sense of wanting and/or longing for something more. That movie created that feeling inside me. When the credits rolled, I noticed in small print the following:
"Based on the novel "Carrie" by Stephen King"
Now, it has to be said, I wasn't much of a reader back then. Sure, I was always at the library; I loved books, I just didn't read them. So when I went to the Aylmer public library the following day, I picked up the book and decided to give it a try. I found a spot in the beanie bag corner and started to read Carrie.
Can I state that this movie/book combination stirred something in me, brought me to where I am now - what with a love for horror movies, books, and writing - Yeah, I think I can. Factor in my french teacher's writing exercises and my active imagination, and you have there the cocktail of my foundation.

It just sucks balls that the movie comes out in 2013. After whatever it is that's suppose to kill us in 2012. *sigh*
