cool movie Recommend this movie to anyone

A decent adaptation but it doesn't have the style and excitement of the DePalma-directed original which nabbed Oscar nominations for both Sissy Spacek and Laurie Piper as the daughter and mother respectively. Chloe Moretz is very talented and some of the scenes with Julianne Moore are well done but the supporting cast is totally forgettable; unlike the original which had John Travolta and Nancy Allen, amongst others. So, not a horrible film, but you may as well watch the original.

Hollywooded-up remake of the original Sissy Spacek's original!

A fair movie on its own, but as a remake, why bother? Only two reasons for such a remake: playing it safe and showing off modern special effects.
No surprises. The best part of the DVD was the telekinetic coffee shop in the extras section.

Honestly, I think this is one of the greatest movie. Even though it's not scary.

Just re-watched this oldie but goodie with my moms! Couldn't believe she had never seen it...she thought it would be too's really not scary, it's more about the age-old misunderstood teen. The title teen just happens to have telekinetic powers. Great cinematography mirrors Carrie's growing powers.

Well, here are two things that I quickly learnt while watching this tediously unimaginative "re-imagining" of a so-so horror story from 1976.

(1) - Teens (in their unfathomable capacity to be cruel & hateful) are, today, even worse bullies than they were back 40 years ago. It seems that it's especially the girls who tend to be the most vicious and spiteful in their deliberate treachery towards others.

(2) - Religious fanatics are even more retarded today then you could ever imagine them to be.

Anyways - In what seemed like a "Made-For-TV-Movie" - I thought that both Julianne Moore and Chloe Moretz were utterly despicable in their pathetically annoying portrayals as a mother/daughter wacko team.

I really can't say which one of these 2 actresses I thought stank the worst in their part. Between the brittle Moore forever chewing up the scenery and the bug-eyed Moretz underplaying her part to the point of being a total non-entity, neither of these women showed even the slightest bit of conviction in the parts that they were playing.

This dumb movie contained absolutely no surprises, whatsoever. And making the story more spectacularly gory and violent than the original only served to prove the point that all of the characters in this dimwitted tale were not worth the slightest bit of attention at all.

And, finally - Since when does possessing the gift of telekinesis also include allowing that person the ability to fly?.... Sheesh! Like, give me a break already!
