A reimagining of the classic horror tale about Carrie White (Chloë Grace Moretz), a shy girl outcast by her peers and sheltered by her deeply religious mother (Julianne Moore), who unleashes telekinetic terror on her small town after being pushed too far at her senior prom. Based on the best-selling novel by Stephen King, Carrie is directed by Kimberly Peirce with a screenplay by Lawrence D. Cohen and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. Written by
Sony Pictures Entertainment
Originally the film was slated to begin with a scene from the book, in which a young Carrie wandered into the yard next door and found her teenage neighbor sunbathing. Margaret flies out of their home in a rage and scoops up Carrie, who throws a tantrum and summons a rain of stones. This prologue was also shot for Carrie (1976) and wound up being deleted from both versions. See more »
When Carrie first uses her powers to lift her mother off the floor, the position of Carrie's hands changes between shots. See more »
I was curious going into this film, as I know Chloe is a great actress, and I really dislike remakes. But I was really surprised by this though, great acting all round, the script is basically the same as the first one, with some tweaks to it(It was a book first people, the script can't actually change that much). The help of CGI has made this film a lot better than the original film(I'll get hate for saying it, but there you go). Really great film, enjoyed it a hell of a lot, I would recommend it to everyone. 10*, cracking acting, brilliant portrayal of the book. A few funny scenes which make the film quite enjoyable. Julianne Moore was a great Margaret White and Chloe was a brilliant Carrie White (A lot better in my honest opinion, than Sissy Spacek). All in all, I'd advise you too watch it!
