I never saw the original, but I don't feel I have to to say this was a pretty terrible movie. The shame is that it had so much potential. Although Carrie had anything but a normal life, she is still just a teenage girl. She doesn't act like one for a single moment in the movie. When teenagers argue with their parents, there's usually some drama involved (either anger or despair). Carrie showed neither of these qualities when she confronted her mother with her new found power. It's as if her long lived fear of her psycho mom disappeared over night. She goes from being terrified of entering her own home with her mother to shamelessly making her own prom dress in front of her mom without a care in the world in just a matter of a few days. The antagonist Chris made much more sense as a character than the protagonist and seemed to have much more character development. The death scenes were very tacky also. (Spoiler) The scene where Chris's face ends up halfway through the windshield was comical if anything. It would have made much more sense for Carrie to aimlessly and uncontrollably lash out when she's upset rather than strategically force people to get trampled to death.
Can't they make good remakes anymore? Are you people kidding ! This movie is an insult to the originals. I can't believe I waited this long for a remake. Not only was it boring as hell! But the acting was terrible and a huge disappointment! Grr I'm so frusted. They try way to hard with 'special effects' and being to holly wood. The blood scene with carrie was ridiculous . nice try.but huge miss.
Horror or Comedy OMG I could not stop laughing the girl who played carrie facial expressions had me on the floor. I kept watching (rental) for the kicks nd giggles, I love the original it's a classic. The acting was terrible!!! I could not take this serious, what a waste of film. When I found out she was in the equalizer with Denzel I was disappointed. Lol
Bored me This movie is so boring! None of it is scary. This is very stupid. Wasted my time. Do not watch. They were very bad actors. This girl that played Carrie is a good actor JUST NOT IN A HORROR MOVIE. not the right category for her. Don't watch unless you want to be bored. This movie actually made me LAUGH. rotten tomatoes movie!
It Was Okay. What I didn't like about this movie is that it was based in modern day. Also, I didn't like the fact that they added things that the original didn't have. There was bad acting and horrible reactions. I'm glad my friends didn't waste their money on this at the theaters!
Shame. Who ever said this movie was grate has a sad life. This is sec time they remade this. And the sec time they failed. The first is when they had nerve to make part 2 to this in 1998 and that too sucked. Like one person said, this is insult to original. The first from steven king was the best the first, in 1976. Nothing remotely comes close to that.
Not even close to good as the original! The original movie, and the 2002 version of Carrie was way better than this version! The acting wasn't even good, in my opinion they picked the wrong actors to play the parts, and was really overdramatic in some parts of the movie! Seriously.
Remake, not again! I bet all those 5 stars are young/babies and never seen the other 2 movies. I have not seen this 3rd only because I have already seen the other movies. There is no point in it. Waste of money and time that can be spent on original movies.
Get over it Get over it trolls. Stop hating on remakes. Every time Hollywood does a remake, you complain & cry. Get over it. The 90's version sucked. Bad acting. Crappy effects. But I was a kid then. The remakes are always better. this movie made millions whether you liked it or not. Trolls
Insult to original Moretz can't compare to Spacek. This remake exploits technology (i.e. gratuitous special effects) at the cost of storytelling. It only succeeded at making me rub my eyes out of exhaustion. Hell, Law & Order SVU is more suspenseful.
Not scary not fun This was like an ABC family version of Carrie. The call backs to the book didn't make any sense. Why have the pig killing scene if Carrie isn't fat? How does Carrie not know what a period is when she is clearly computer literate? Why does Carrie seem to enjoy murdering everyone rather than feel terrified of what she's doing? Is Carrie telekinetic psychic? She can sense an unborn fetus but not the scissors behind her mom's back who has never comforted her. Don't waste your time.
No Ill give it props for the attempt. Its like the game "The Evil Within." Meaning its more disturbing than it is creepy. There isn't even a simple jump scare anywhere. Ill also give props for the atmosphere and the gruesomeness. But other than that no, just no.
Story writing was bad. Yea.... the story about why the girls were so mad at carrie was not believable. Especially the very beginning in the shower. It was a little ridiculous. But chloe is a good young actress.
Carrie This movie isn't as scary as it is depressing (nevertheless a great film). Carrie White is just a shy teen that wished to "fit-in". I felt angered by her classmates, happy for her during prom, and ultimately sad for her that her hope of a better life were crushed by teens wanting nothing but to ruin her well being. After watching this heartbreaking movie, I felt my eyes watering for Carrie's suffering, and her hopes, dreams, and mother, being killed all because she was, simply, pushed...too far.
FREAKIN' AWESOME The "horror" doesn't really kick in untill the end but that's what's good about this movie. You kind of feel for the characters when they die and its actually intense. For the most part the movie is just kind of creepy but in a calm sense. So in the end of the movie you're sord of tricked into believing that the killing is brutal and you're actually scared. In other words this movie is totally worth it.
Great Great acting. Seen the original,the remake, and the rage but still cant get enough carrie. She did kill a ton of folks but I cant help but to feel bad for her. Lesson is leave people the heck alone.
Pleasantly surprised! Firstly.. Yes its a remake but not a reboot and at least half the viewers are not even aware of this nor are concerned about it. And rightly so! (I'm not suggesting that De Palma's vision should be forsaken AT ALL but let's put it aside) k then.. Foremost what stands out is the acting by Julianne Moore AND Chloe Moretz which i felt was exceptional for the genre (please dont hate me 4 saying that :/ ) Also the fx are excellent! And of course the screenplay, based on Steven King's novel, JUST ENJOY IT!
Horrible Nothing happens till the last 25 minutes of this movie and then poor acting and simple special effects kick in. This was a hot mess! Do not recommend to anyone, very cheesy and boring. Glad I rented this and didnt buy
Amazing I want to watch it so bad!!!!! But I haven't. The trailer is amazing so I want to see it. It doesn't seem like a horror movie, I feel her pain. But they did go too far. Her life looks sad and I actually want her powers :)
Best thriller n bloody movie Not a scary movie but amazing effects and the actor who played carrie was terrific she really made me feel their are little carries out there who been mistreated and bully. Her mother is so religious it's creepy and scary. One of my favorite 2013 movies. Must watch!
Both versions of this Carrie picture is great! Carrie 1976 and Carrie 2013 are the most greatest supernatural horror action movie that I ever always enjoy watching! Just like how I enjoyed playing my game called ico it's pretty similar to Carrie 1976 that I'm comparing that I see! There's even Ico's revenge on the part where he returns himself back to the beginning location where he fights off all of the other horned guy spirits to light up all the tombs and beyond what you see in the rest of the game.
Not so good I really didn't care for this version. Of course I saw the '76 version, and not only was the acting better, but I feel the climax and suspense was there which this film imo is missing. No suspense or build up to the climax. Things just sort of happen. There wasn't a chilling unraveling of events like in the original version. Although I feel the younger audience will find this version more suitable.
Better in theaters Some of the more visceral scenes are better on the big screen, and frankly the visceral impact is all it has over the original, I actually cried in the theater. Something doesn't come across at home. I love Julianne Moore, but she doesn't have the convincing insanity of Piper Laurie, and Sissy Spacek was a more believable outcast than confident Chloe Grace Moretz, who I liked better in Hick.
Just so ya know,is on youtube for free,srry google! But i personaly thought it was a very nice remake. How none of the scary stuff happened untilbthe end really got to me. And brava t ok miss julian moore(srry if i spelled ur name wrong) best creppyly religious mom ever!!!
This is an insult to the original. It's cheesy and blatantly unbelievable. Despite ripping the original script text for some type of "cred", the movie was terrible. From the acting..to the overall delivery, just horrible. It's hard to remake a classic. But if you're going to do it, do it right. This "remake" was wrong.
