Storyline

The outcast teenager Carrie White is bullied by her classmates at high school. Her mother, Margaret White, is a pious and paranoid woman that sees sin everywhere and the need of self-inflicting punishment. When Carrie has her first period, she does not understand what is happening to her and her classmates humiliate her in the changing room. The spiteful Chris Hargensen videotapes Carrie with her cell phone and posts it on the Internet. Their teacher Ms. Desjardin punishes the students, but when Chris challenges her, she is suspended and consequently is banned from the prom. Meanwhile, Carrie discovers that she has telekinesis and learns how to control her ability. Sue Snell, one of the girls that tormented Carrie, feels bad and asks her boyfriend Tommy Ross to invite Carrie to go with him to the prom to make up for what she did to Carrie. But Chris and her boyfriend Billy Nolan plot an evil prank with her friends to seek vengeance for Carrie. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

Unlike the 1976 original film and 2002 remake, Carrie has a slight ability of Pyrokinesis shown when she burns a crack in the closet door and fuses the slide lock on the closet door to keep her mother locked in. Also, in the novel she is able to cause it to rain rocks when she is distressed, but in this version she is able to create Earthquakes meaning she has a more developed power of Geokenisis. She also has Technopathy which is shown in when she turns lights in the gym on and off; she also had this power in the 2002 version. See more »

Goofs

Alternate Versions

The theatrical version ends with a brief scene of Sue in court for the White Investigation (an integral part of the Stephen King novel otherwise omitted from the film) and then laying a flower on Carrie White's grave, which cracks as she walks away. The alternate Blu-Ray cut omits the courtroom scene and features a different edit of Sue placing the flower on Carrie's grave. This scene is followed with Sue in the delivery room giving birth, but instead of a baby, Carrie's arm emerges from between her legs and grabs her. Quick-cut to Sue's mother, who's holding and trying to awaken her hysterical, pregnant daughter from this nightmare. See more »

Julianne Moore
8 August 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

She is the basic motif to see this not bad but far to be the most inspired version of Stephen King's Carrie. It is the film for young public. Not only for the presence of the every day technology, but for the traits of teenagers films. Julianne Moore has the virtue to remind the source. And Chloe Grace Moretz - to give a decent performance for a role who preserves deep shadow of great Sissy Spacek . maybe, I am too old for enjoy this version. Who must be for the desire to serve the new expectations of public. But the basic good points of it are the performance of Julianne Moore as the mother and the invitation to read (again) the novel.
