Not the worst remake ever, but the problem is it's pretty much the exact same film Brain De Palma gave us in '76 so if you've already seen that (classic) horror film, this feels like a tired retread. Compared to the original, it's just a pale imitation and thought I give credit to Moretz and Moore - they just can't match Spacek and Laurie. Other than giving us YouTube, cell phones and a few small touches from Stephen King's original story - it's a too close retread that, like leftovers, just isn't as good the second time around.

Carrie should join the X-men. if you have seen the original movie then you will not be happy with this movie,because it is the same story and you know was is going to happen, they is nothing new here. The writing in the movie was a bit Odd and the acting was fine. "Not a terrible remake just a forgettable one".

Minor spoilers ahead..........
Brian De Palma's Carrie, back in the 70s, was something of a terrific film - scary, tense, engaging, and above all, nuts. This remake directed by Kimberly Pierce is everything that the original was except engaging, scary and tense. It is nuts. Not merely in a positive view, however. It has most of the plot points pinned to the board (only updated to today's use of social media), but it's missing the overall vibe of uneasiness that oozed out of the original film's core. It fails as a horror film pretty badly - completely lacking the suspenseful buildup to the big prom scene and failing to grip and pull us inside the mind of a paranoid, lonely, stressed out teenager whose going through teenage girl hell. Rather than feeling sympathetic for the character …
