Guys, don't get me wrong. As a huge Stephen King fan, I'm incredibly, incredibly (over)excited for Carrie- it's one of the few remakes scheduled for this year that I think might actually do the original flick justice. After all, and are both fantastically talented actresses and director plans to stick closer to the book than the previous Carrie films.

But I think the latest poster is pretty blah. It riffs on the whole 'You Will Know Her Name' slogan again - yup, we get it. We all definitely know her name by now!

I guess my real issue is that the posters for the 1976 Carrie were so B-movie trashy fantastic! They were simultaneously fabulous pieces of design and shamelessly eye-catching. Check out a couple below:

I reckon these are indisputably better posters than the ones the 2013 Carrie marketing team have come up with - but what do you think? Let me know in the comments below.
