A remake of a classic (but rated R) horror film. Carrie is a bullied teen with a crazy mom who realizes she may have a way to fight back. And fight she does in the most spectacular fashion ever.

Competent, but pointless remake of the 1976 horror film, based on the Stephen King novel. Chloe Grace Moretz takes the lead role, Julianne Moore plays her monster of a mother, Ansel "Baby Driver" Elgort (typing that doesn't make his name seem any less fake) is her hunky prom date, Portia Doubleday is the mean girl, and Judy Greer is the sympathetic gym teacher. Aside from updated special effects, it's almost exactly the same as the original. Despite a female director, it doesn't fell particularly feminist. Moretz was also in remakes of "Suspiria" and "Let the Right One In."

I loved this book by Stephen King, a young teenager who possess a great power with her mind. One night at her senior prom, Carrie had been embarrassed one too many times. She then takes her power to the very abrupt level, taking out all her anger on the ones who have bullied her. You read along to discover her uncontrollable fury and destruction. This movie is so different as you go from the scary religious mother to the pig’s blood. I thought all the different idea were unique, I wonder where he comes up with all these ideas. Overall an amazing book and would recommend reading it for any ages. 4/5 Stars @Effystonem at the Hamilton Public Library of the Teen Review Board.

Is it a horror movie

Chloe Grace Morentz owns her performance, Julianne Moore follows through, and Ansel Elgort gives an excellent breakout performance. Also, the updates to modern day are seamless to the point you wouldn't know the book and original film were made in the 1970s. However, the effects are kind of silly in the climax, the side characters don't feel that deep or developed, it can't decide whether it wants to be a repeat of the original or it's own thing; last and by no means the least, it isn't violent enough. Numerous setups for great violent deaths, and yet they cut away before the deliver. That's this movie in a nutshell' great setups, but doesn't follow through. I still like it and will watch it occasionally, but is inferior overall when compared to the original.

A decent adaptation but it doesn't have the style and excitement of the DePalma-directed original which nabbed Oscar nominations for both Sissy Spacek and Laurie Piper as the daughter and mother respectively. Chloe Moretz is very talented and some of the scenes with Julianne Moore are well done but the supporting cast is totally forgettable; unlike the original which had John Travolta and Nancy Allen, amongst others. So, not a horrible film, but you may as well watch the original.

Hollywooded-up remake of the original Sissy Spacek's original!

A fair movie on its own, but as a remake, why bother? Only two reasons for such a remake: playing it safe and showing off modern special effects.
No surprises. The best part of the DVD was the telekinetic coffee shop in the extras section.
