Synopsis

Carrie White (Chloë Grace Moretz) is an outcast amongst her high school peers due to her awkwardness. At home, she's subject to her mother's (Julianne Moore) extreme religious beliefs. Not having been taught anything about procreation at home, when she gets her period at school, she's hysterical, fearing the blood means she's dying. Her classmates taunt her and make a video.

One girl, Sue (Gabriella Wilde), feels remorse and tries to make it up to Carrie by convincing her boyfriend Tommy (Ansel Elgort) to ask the shy outsider to the prom. Carrie is at first suspicious, but finally accepts, despite her mother's protestations. Meanwhile, mean girl Chris (Portia Doubleday), who was banned from the prom due after posting the video of Carrie to YouTube, decides to make prom unforgettable.

A remake of the 1976 movie starring Sissy Spacek, based on the Stephen King novel of the same name.

  • 1 star "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."
  • 1 star "Everyone involved with making this should be canned."
  • 1 star "Wretched remake of De Palma's masterpiece. Possibly the most badly miscast film ever."
