With a focus on messy family relationships, this thriller's deranged comical touches almost make up for its contrived plot and annoyingly thin characters. Director Ruzowitzky (an Oscar winner for The Counterfeiters) makes the most of the snowy landscapes and an eclectic cast, but the jarring combination of grisly violence, black humour, romance and drama never quite comes together.
In a northern Michigan blizzard, Addison (Bana) is on the run with his sister Liza (Wilde) after a casino heist. When their car crashes in the snow, they decide to head for the Canadian border separately. Liza is picked up off the road by Jay (Hunnam), a hunky ex-con boxer who's stopping to see his parents his parents (Spacek and Kristofferson) while running from the cops himself. Addison encounters a variety of local characters himself as he tries to catch up with Liza. And the local sheriff (Williams) relentlessly picks on deputy Hanna (Mara), his daughter, as they track the fugitives through the snow.
Every relationship in this film is deeply dysfunctional, and the actors have a great time playing with the soapy wrinkles. Bana and Wilde play up the creepy innuendo between the siblings, while the contrived romance between Wilde and Hunnam is like the set-up for a porn movie. Meanwhile, Mara's ambitious cop is so belittled by her awful dad and his equally sexist deputies that we don't really mind it when they start dying one by one in their encounters with Addison. And holding everything together is the wonderfully level-headed Spacek, who carries on cooking dinner while her husband goes out to shoot a deer, then cheerfully serves pie even with a shotgun levelled at her head.

She revealed to Teen Vogue magazine: ''When I was auditioning for Carrie, I was told, 'Well, look, you're too young, you're too pretty, you're too accomplished.' ''

A teaser trailer for the Carrie remake was unveiled at New York’s Comic Con last weekend and has now made its way online. Starring Chloe Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore, the re-visioning of the 1976 Brian De Palma classic will, of course, have horror fanatics cowering behind the sofa in fear, peering gingerly through the fingers that fearfully cover their eyes. This won’t be because they are particularly scared of whatever is happening on screen, though but because they are petrified of what director Kimberly Peirce may have done to their beloved Carrie.
The teaser trailer itself isn’t exactly very… teasing. As the camera pans over an American town that’s been pretty much entirely set on fire, it eventually zooms in on Chloe Grace Moretz, stood in the middle of the street, surrounded by flames and covered in blood, recalling the classic Carrie scene. Except, in the classic image of Carrie (played by Sissy Spacek), covered in blood, she wasn’t standing in the middle of the street. She was at her school prom. But hey, why let a massive detail like that upset you? Perhaps this scene is just from her walk home from the prom. (Cue thousands of horror purists reaching for their ventilators).
Over the action, a montage of voices spout various suspense-inducing phrases, such as “she wasn’t some monster — she was just a girl” and “her mother was a fanatic, I don’t know how she lived with her.” We don’t get much more than that from this first glimpse of the film; the movie’s producers will have to try a lot harder than this if they want to coax any fans of the original out from behind the sofa.
Chloe Moretz says the 'Carrie' remake will ''mess with your mind'', and while filming the rebooted horror movie she has started ''seeing things'' that weren't there.
Chloe Moretz says the 'Carrie' remake will ''mess with your mind''.
The 'Kick-Ass' actress compares the forthcoming remake of the 1976 horror film to 2010 thriller 'Black Swan' - which stars Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman - and admits the rebooted movie will be mainly based on the Stephen King novel of the same name.
She said: ''The Script is totally different from the [original]. It's more like the book. It's a more 'Black Swan' version - it messes with your mind. You'll see things, and you don't know if you've seen them.''

Loretta Lynn is actually three years older than she has led her fans to believe, which means the story she tells of being married at thirteen-years-old is not true. According to document obtained by the Associated Press, Lynn's birth certificate shows that the singer was born on April 14, 1932 - making her 80, not 77.
In her autobiography 'Coal Miner's Daughter', the singer says she was married at 13 and was a mother of four by 18, and most public references list Lynn's age as 77. When contacted about the matter, Lynn's spokeswoman Nancy Russell of Nashville declined to comment, saying that Lynn has made it clear, "If anyone asks how old I am, tell them it's none of their business!". The three year difference wouldn't be particularly notable, was it not for her autobiography and the subsequent Hollywood adaptation starring Sissy Spacek that grossed over $67 million and was nominated for seven Oscars. The book and movie chose to put Lynn's married age at 13, and Zooey Deschanel is set to play her in a forthcoming Broadway musical. Her co-author on 'Coal Miner's Daughter' - the New York Times sports columnist George Vecsey - admits he did not verify the age claims with Lynn, saying "It's her book, and I never saw a birth certificate, marriage license. It's what they told me.I couldn't say that she was the one who told me first. Between her manager (David Skepner) who has passed and her husband who has now passed, it was at least three different people telling me that".
In 1972, Loretta Lynn became the first woman to be named Entertainer of the Year by the Country Music Association. She is best known for her hits 'The Pill', 'You Ain't Woman Enough' and 'Coal Miner's Daughter'.
Chloe Moretz says the 'Carrie' remake will be ''darker and more psychological'' than the original 1976 horror film and based on the Stephen King book of the same name more than the previous motion picture.

The 'Kick-Ass' actress has signed up to play the titular role - a bullied schoolgirl who discovers she has psychic powers and uses them to cause havoc in her hometown - in the reboot of the 1976 horror film, and she revealed the movie will have similarities to 2010 psychological thriller 'Black Swan'.
She said: ''It's darker and much more psychological. More 'Black Swan'. You're really looking into her mind and it really looks into the relationship of Margaret and Carrie. It's set in modern time, so it's a lot different.''
