Carrie (1976)

STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 1
CULT – 1

 

VERDICT – 5/5

 

 
PROS –
1) A prank goes too far for a shy telekinetic teenage girl on prom night.
2) The pig-blood prank on clueless Carrie rejoicing her win is one of the most disturbing scenes in a horror movie. The prank itself is more shocking than the prom massacre.
3) Piper Laurie’s performance as Carrie’s abusive Bible-basher mother gives us a better perspective on the mental state of Carrie.
4) Contest Winners – Pino Donaggio.

 

 
CONS –
N/A

VERDICT – 2/5

 
PROS –
N/A

 

CONS –
1) So far the worst season of the series. There was not a single sub-plot in the entire series worth watching. I’m clearly done with Preacher now.
2) The climax was rushed and unfulfilling.

God: I made you in My own image.A little thanks would be nice.
Preacher: Thank You? For what? Kids with cancer? The Kardashians?

Preacher (Season 3)

MUSIC – 1
CULT – 1

Verdict – 5/5

 

Pros –
1) Best season so far. While most of the season 2 was spent at Denis’ dilapidated house, this season was at Angelville. Probably the best supernatural black-comedy on TV right now.
2) Exciting new characters like Satan and Allfather were introduced however Betty Buckley as Marie “Gran’ma” L’Angelle and Colin Cunningham as T.C. will take the top spot.
3) Each episode was better than the previous one with the story unfolding with new subplots and new characters.

 

Cons –
1) “Les Enfants du Sang” – this entire sub-plot for Cassidy was boring.
