I liked the movie but I thought it could have been way better. I don't get how its a horror movie, it's no where close to a horror movie.

Could have been a better movie. The way it ends is close to the burlesque.

Obviously, this movie has better special effects than the original, but it's not as good as it is. There is more background and it is slightly more correct to the book (except for the setting and fact that Carrie is supposed to be fat, brunette and wear a red dress.) This "Tommy" is more likable in my opinion and although Moretz does a good job, Moore stole the show.

I like you got more background story than the original worth a watch

I think Mortez is way to pretty to be Carrie, but whatever...
The remake wasn't necessary in my opinion.

I'm on the same page with most of the other reviewers -- a decent modern remake that doesn't stray far from the original with Sissy Spacek. Moretz does a good job.

Despite the presence of Julian Moore, this is one of those remakes that simply need not be done. Stick to the original.

Had watched the original a couple years ago. So as I watched this, I kept trying to compare what was the same and what was different. For the most part, it sticks to the original movie's plot of what happened. Some differences, such as you see the group of popular teens in this version texting this clip of Carrie's low point around and posting it on the internet, but besides that, you have just about the same movie, just a modern day version. Both actress in the leading roles did the movie justice in my opinion.

Please. This was a weak remake of Carrie. Why could they not change it up/ spice it up? I felt I was watching the same movie with different faces. Should have watched the original.

Nice remake. The telekinetic coffee shop extra was a good one as well.
