I’m seriously wondering if there’s a more anti-Christian movie than “Carrie.” I saw it once many years ago. In fact, I’ll be honest. The reason I watched it on cable was because I saw that the star of “The Greatest American Hero” was in it. And I thought that show was the bomb.
What? I was a kid. But I remember “Carrie” watching it and thinking that 1) it was pretty bad.
Now, maybe it was the first to do all the things that are so common in movies now but to me it seemed pretty clichéd even then.
2) Amy Irving was very cute. What?
3) I thought that it was THE most anti-Christian movie I’d ever seen in my life. Now, admittedly my life at that point wasn’t too long but still, I’m still trying to think of a movie that works harder to make Christians seem totally wacko.
It’s kinda’ weird in that the book’s author Stephen King is a Christian. I know he’s a liberal and all but he’s a Christian. He recently reportedly said, “If you say, ‘Well, OK, I don’t believe in God. There’s no evidence of God,’ then you’re missing the stars in the sky and you’re missing the sunrises and sunsets and you’re missing the fact that the bees pollinate all these crops and keep us alive and the way that everything seems to work together.”
I never read the book. And when I was about twenty I pretty much ready everything by Stephen King. Except Carrie. I’d seen the movie and just had zero interest. And I saw the movie about the killer car “Christine” and still read the book so you know my standards were pretty low. It could be the book isn’t as anti-Christian but I don’t care enough to find out.
The reason I bring this up is because “Carrie” is getting remade and it seems just as anti-Christian as the original if you see the trailer. I’m not going to link to it because it looks like exactly the same movie. I think this is like the third time this movie is getting remade. It seems to me that Hollywood likes this movie a lot more than actual people do.
But I’m interested. Do you guys know of any movie that’s more anti-Christian than “Carrie?”
