Really bad. The director and studio kept saying that this film would ignore Brian De Palma's masterpiece and be a more faithful adaptation of King's novel. Lies!! The structure of the novel was not used and this film just kept "quoting" De Palma's film, thereby underscoring how inferior this remake is by comparison. A massively wrongheaded film made solely for profit motives.
Everyone involved with making this should be canned.
Wretched remake of De Palma's masterpiece. Possibly the most badly miscast film ever.
Terrible, unnecessary film. Not scary and badly miscast. Stick with DePalma's original.
A film worthy of it's name as a remake, Chloe Moretz is turning into such a wonderful young actress and really knocks it out of the park, and Julianne Moore as her mother is amazing as usual.
Scary but the first one was better
Having seen the first Carrie movie, I don't understand the logic of this remake. The first one is much better with Sissy Spacek (her character more believable and sad than the new Carrie). However Julianne Moore did a terrific acting job. But when all said and done, we all knew what was going to happen all the way through. Certainly not worth a remake!
I prefer the first version
A bit disappointed after seeing the original - I think there was no need for a remake (we all know the story). I liked the original Carrie character better with Cissie Spacek (shy, scared, low self-esteem), but Julianne Moore is great as the nutty mom. But no surprises here. Okay to see but didn't like to pay money to see the movie. Would have been happy with memories of the original show.
a few spots were a bit freaky
pretty good and leaves you at the edge of your seat.
It was just as freaky as the original.
This movie was nothing compared to the original. The acting was horrible. The only good acting in the movie was the mom for sure.
I liked this movie...it was much the same story theme as the original Carrie but with a modern look. I believe the actress that portrayed Carrie was a much pretttier Carrier and is a great actress!
I prefer the original
Even better than the first one.
Was a little disappointing. Was expecting more graphics, and possible a little more from the story line.
Good story & liked the acting. I wasn't sure about it since I loved the Classic Carrie.. But this one was a good updated version. I thinks it's a Go See movie.
great performances, but ultimately unnecessary remake.
This remake was not needed. At times it used the dialogue from the original film. You might as well just watch the original or read the book. They're both better than this lousy remake. I will say, however, that Julianne Moore was great as the mother.
A must see. Way better than the original.
Too scary but good movie.
A wonderful recreation of Stephen King's original story, paying great homage to the original movie starring Sissy Spacek. Definitely worth seeing.
Some good things here - she does an admirable job of channeling the essence of a haunted young woman... always a pleasure to see Julianne Moore explore her talent. Of course, nothing at all can compare to the horror of the original with Sissy Spacek!
Just as good as the original.
Hoping for a newer psychological aspect to this remake of Stephen King's thriller, I was a bit disappointed with the almost complete renewal of the original. The pyrotechnics were spectacular but it lacked a fear factor.
I enjoyed this movie. I loved the end when she went insane.
can't compare to original.
Teenage angst. Lots of blood. Just an okay movie.
Not as great as the old Carrie, but's it's all right if you enjoy the actress and Carrie movies
Excellent reinterpretation of the Stephen King novel. Chloe Moretz kills (literally and figuratively) as Carrie.
Scary at points, but not as much as I expected it to be. Could had been more believable.
Special effects are amazing in this new version. The acting was better than the orginal.
This movie has been done to many times and it just gets worse each time.
It was awsome and kept to the original storyline with an updated twist
Not as good as the original. Still had some scary moments.
one of my favorite scary movies
Has got all the necessary bits for being a proper, entertaining horror movie!
Very well but actor main things have too much presence
CARRIE was so exciting and thrilling to view this movie for the very first time ! I really enjoyed it and will try to get the DVD of the movie, so I can show it off to all my friends !
A thrill ride, one of my best horror movies of the year, a must see and must have on blue ray.
This movie was not nearly as good as the original; personally I was waiting the whole movie just to see the hand crash through the hallow ground, only to be disappointed. The actress who plays Carrie is awful and the whole movie is way too overly sexual, compared to the classic. I would not recommend seeing this movie in theatres but if you're a horror fan and liked the original, you might want to pick up a cheap copy when its out on DVD.
The original was the best. It is not as good once you seen the original. I say leave well enough alone
likrd it a lot
This was better then the original!!
