  • If you're going to take another stab at this tale of a taunted, traumatized teen who exacts fiery revenge on, well, everyone, then Kimberly Peirce is the director to do it. show more

  • If De Palma’s version was one part adolescent dream, three parts nightmare, with a sly streak of satire running through it, Peirce’s is a more earnest yet still engrossing take on the story that should connect with contemporary teens. At the very least it might send fledgling horror buffs scurrying to their Netflix queues to watch a vintage masterpiece of the genre. show more

  • Alas, despite the timeless concerns of adolescent bullying and burgeoning sexuality, Carrie as a film fails to become its own satisfyingly whole interpretation of coming-of-age horrors both literal and figurative. Its bloodshed may be all dressed up, but it ultimately has nowhere to go. show more

    The worst remake of Carrie ever! Overall the original Carrie really implemented the troubled life of Carrie both at home and in school. In the end of the original it was a tremendous outcome that was well deserved. This ending and movie just sucked!

    Just a better version of the old, but the same thing, just some new actors. If you have allot of movies you want to watch I would not put it at the top of your list....

    Of course, the younger generation always likes remakes better. Younger people never relate to the originals as much because they didn\'t grow up in the time period in which those movies came out; also, the original Carrie has a hauntingly beautiful soundtrack, which younger people don\'t relate to.
