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 Prometheus, and I loved that they made the protagonist female.

Among the hardest acts to follow would be the remake of Brian De Palma's 1976 original version of Carrie based on the Stephen King classic book which had a stellar cast with 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.

Carrie delivers chills and thrills in this edge of your seat thrill ride. A mean girl sets Carrie on a path destruction and is bent on revenge for all the torment that she had to endure in the locker room. Carrie is an amazing film. I loved it. One of the best horror films in a long time and it is a fitting tribute to the original film. You will know her name.... BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL.

I liked the original Carrie for the story, and of course for John Travolta, but I didn't like the effects, or the kind-of-dumb "fire hose as a weapon" thing. This modern version certainly delivers on the effects, but not on the missing Travolta. All of the characters in this movie besides Carrie and her teacher are quite forgettable. I suggest you watch both movies and get the full benefits from both! Also, Chloe Grace Moretz is far far too gorgeous for this character, although her spooky look and gestures at the end seem appropriate. She acted this role perfectly, as did the teacher character. The rest? Heh!

I like this remake. A lot in fact.
The original was amazing, and nothing compares to Sissy Spacek, but this remake brought Carrie into our time and made it so much more relate-able.
It was also a little different in parts. but all in a good way.
The bigger budget for this film, compared to the original, made a huge difference to the film and cinematography.
Julianne Moore took me back a few when I first saw her. Being such a beautiful woman, and she is just the complete opposite in this film. She played the part of the mother perfectly though.
It was really an amazing movie.

With that said, I was surprised by this remake of the classic DePalma film, based off Stephan King’s novel. The performances are up to standard, with the exception of [insert name here] who plays Sue. As pretty as she is, she gives a wooden performance. Not awful but lacking in comparison to her other co-stars.

When reviewing a remake, one is compelled to compare it to the original. Unfortunately for “Carrie” (2013), it is trying to re-do a classic chiller that is re-known for its iconic performances by 2 of its female leads, Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie. Chloe Grace Moretz is a great Carrie. Although she looks nothing like the character as written by King (Spacek also didn’t BTW) and despite being too cute, too pretty, she is very believable as the awkward teen who is constantly bullied by her cruel classmates. Once overcome by vengeance during the prom scene, she is impressive. In contrast to Spacek who simply stared, Moretz gets very physical when unleashing her fury, using her hands and body and it is effective visually. I do have to add that during the prom scene, Moretz resembled a blood-soaked Britney Spears... just sayin’. Julianne Moore, as expected, is good as Carrie’s mother but she does lack Piper Laurie’s sinister appeal and many to date remember Laurie for her chilling, over-the-top performance in DePalma's horror film. I do not think Moore's performance, as good as she was, will have that kind of everlasting impact.

The remake is very faithful to the original film. The content has been updated (how can anyone make a film about teenagers and not include a smart-phone?) and the special effects are clearly better. However where the film-makers lost it was in the execution. Despite glossier production values, they managed to eliminate the fright factor.
