Long before the blood starts spilling, it’s clear the new team has mostly nailed it. The reboot is as good a Carrie remake as possible,...

For all the psychological realism of Carrie and Margaret's relationship, however, this remake has a comic book feeling.

Where Sissy Spacek seemed otherworldly and haunted in De Palma’s film, Moretz (“Hugo,” “Kick-Ass”) is sadder. She’s a terrific young...

Chicago Sun-Times

By Bill Zwecker
This Carrie comes off like a Lifetime film, adding little new and nothing substantial to improve on DePalma’s classic.

Rather than offering new blood, Carrie is a purely cosmetic revamp.

Carrie Not So Scary

By MedRed
This reboot of Carrie is a modern take on the original novel with a lot of material from the first movie thrown in. The main actors do a decent job, but some of the supporting cast were a little...

I had fun, more true to the book.

By richardmaynard
I didn't like the original *gasp!* but I went with my teen last night because she's a huge Chloe fan. I was a little worried about content, but having read the book I knew what to expect and there...

Cloe killed it!

By Pa3cya
I'm not a big fan of remakes but this one I am. The acting was excellent. The build-up was awesome! They really did a fantastic job with Carrie!...

Good flick

By ltownsend42
The movie was a good high school revenge flick. It was entertaining from beginning to end, not to mention Julianne Moore killed it as Carrie's mother! Overall not as creepy as the original but a...

The Original May Cloud Your Judgement...

By Geek Soul Brother
.. But this wasn't a bad film. For what's essentially a teen horror, CARRIE is better than most others. Moretz as the Telekenetic girl, and Moore as the religious zealot mother, delivered very good...

Go, but save it for a matinee

By carlylepeach
The '70s version with Sissy Spacek is definitely better, but this was a good "popcorn movie." Julianne Moore and Chloe Moretz were great in their roles. This was a nice peek at Ansel Elgort too,...

Pretty good remake, worth seeing

By raydmak
Definitely a new take on this classic Stephen King story. Although I could not help but compare it to the original...the film does justice to updating this story of bullying to the modern day....

CARRIE is a bloody good remake

By take2dave
In anticipation of seeing this movie, I watched the original. There are several scenes that are almost word for word, but others that build and expand on the story. The casting of Carrie's mom was...

It's not a bad film.

By gcorey77
More violent than the original. The mother was more crazy and suicidal than the original character from the 70's version. Overall though, not bad but the original was way better. Not a bad movie...


By big_al
Excellent version of Carrie!! Chloe Grace-Moretz had me totally convinced she was this weak little awkward girl. The bullying scenes were crazy! The prom scene was awesome. Also Julianne Moore was...
