Running time 100 minutes.

Extras.
Optional Alternative Ending or Theatrical Cut versions, Trailer, Featurettes.

Trivia.
1)Jodie Foster was considered for the part of Mrs Margaret White.
2)Chloe Moretz was 15 year's old when making this movie & was therefore limited to only 8 hour's acting per day.
3)Mrs White death scene was reshot as it wasn't deemed gory enough.
4)The altenative ending is actually better than the theatrical cut & the Blu ray allows you to choose which ending you prefer.
5)I recommend Busy Doin Nothing review of this movie as he very informative on the making of this movie.

Synopsis.
A remake of the 1976 film of the same name sees Chloe Moretz take up the role of Carrie White a shy girl whom is deemed a outcast by her classmates & sheltered by her religious & disturbed mother Margaret.

Carrie starts to discover she has powers of telekinesis passed on genetically from her father & starts to study it's power & learn how to control it.

When her classmate Sue feels empathy towards Carrie for teasing her she asks her boyfriend Tommy to escort Carrie to the High School Prom in her place to give Carrie a night of happiness.

Yet fate has other idea's as Carrie is once again a victim of a vicious prank which pushes her emotionally too far allowing Carrie in unleashing her powers of telekinesis upon her classmates in a bloody bloodbath that will end in such tragic consequences for everyone involved.

Carrie is based on the masterly horror writer Stephen King's book. The original release was in 1976. Thirty seven years later, a modern version has been released in the cinema screen. To be honest, I am not a fan of remakes, as I have seen plenty of abysmal and pointless remakes. Carrie is a reasonable remake.

Carrie is a supernatural horror film. The story is about Margaret White, a disturbed, sinister and overly religions character, who gives birth to a girl, with the intention of killing her, but changes mind. Years later, a shy and loner Carrie is nearly graduating. One day Carrie experiences her first menstrual period in the girls showers. Fellow pupils laugh and take joy seeing this. Carrie is a victim of bullying. What is the explanation for this? Later, we found out Carrie holds supernatural powers, that can cause destruction. The pace and adrenaline of the film picks up mid way, as Carrie's character become scary and spooky. There are scary and disturbing scenes throughout the film.

The modern version is a descent remake. I did not mind at all.

If you have seen the original Carrie, this remake will bore you to tears. Sure, they added cyber bullying to the film, big deal. The acting was great, but so was the original. Did the "Plug it up" scene surprise anybody? Did anybody not know what was going to happen with the pig's blood? The fire? the automobile? the mom? And what about the ending? I recall watching the original Carrie in the theater. That surprise ending literally had people jumping out of their chairs. This one put me to sleep. It was like watching a film where someone told you everything that was going to happen.

Why did they even bother?

a remake of the original Carrie - tbh I would recommend you watch the original as this is a poor imitation - Chloe Moretz annoyed me more and more throughout this film with her ridiculous "large eyes" staring - clearly trying desperately to look as intimidating as Sissy Spacek did in the original and failing miserably - Julianne Moore I thought was great as her mother but I really wouldnt recommend watching this - stick with the original - so much better

Every so often we get a remake of a horror classic, and most times they do not hold a candle to the original. Case in point Sam Peckinpah's classic Straw Dogs starring Dustin Hoffman and Susan George. Other examples being Sam Raimi's Evil Dead, and Texas Chainsaw Massacre, classics in the genre.

Occasionally though a worthwhile remake comes along such as I Spit on Your Grave or Last House on the Left which while the originals may not be classics they have gained a certain reputation, and a good way to explore the originals. I particularly liked the remake of John Carpenter's The Thing which can be seen as a precursor to the Alien movies, and I loved that they made the protagonist female.

Among the hardest acts to follow would be the remake of De Palma's original version of Carrie based on the Stephen King classic book which had a stellar cast including Sissy Spacek and John Travolta in a minor role. It has been a long time since I saw the original, and as I watched this remake starring Chloe Grace Moretz, at first I did start comparing it to the original but as I continued to watch I began to realize what a brilliant story this is, and how relevant it is as a metaphor for high school life today. The original has a surprise element which I have now seen many times with slight variations in other movies, an indicator of its huge influence..

Since the original movie in 1976 we have had many high school shootings. In some cases the perpetrators are marginalized or outsiders, treated as weird or even bullied by other kids with tragic consequences.
