Storyline

The outcast teenager Carrie White is bullied by her classmates at high school. Her mother, Margaret White, is a pious and paranoid woman that sees sin everywhere and the need of self-inflicting punishment. When Carrie has her first period, she does not understand what is happening to her and her classmates humiliate her in the changing room. The spiteful Chris Hargensen videotapes Carrie with her cellphone and posts it on the Internet. Their teacher Ms. Desjardin punishes the students, but when Chris challenges her, she is suspended and consequently is banned from the prom. Meanwhile, Carrie discovers that she has telekinesis and learns how to control her ability. Sue Snell, one of the girls that tormented Carrie, feels bad and asks her boyfriend Tommy Ross to invite Carrie to go with him to the prom to make up for what she did to Carrie. But Chris and her boyfriend Billy Nolan plot an evil prank with her friends to get back at Carrie. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Alternate Versions

The theatrical version ends with a brief scene of Sue in court for the White Investigation (an integral part of the Stephen King novel otherwise omitted from the film) and then laying a flower on Carrie White's grave, which cracks as she walks away. The alternate Blu-Ray cut omits the courtroom scene and features a different edit of Sue placing the flower on Carrie's grave. This scene is followed with Sue in the delivery room giving birth, but instead of a baby, Carrie's arm emerges from between her legs and grabs her. Quick-cut to Sue's mother, who's holding and trying to awaken her hysterical, pregnant daughter from this nightmare. See more »

Carrie on
30 October 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

This remake of Carrie lacks Brian de Palma's distinctive visual style. It also adds little that is new to the 1976 original.

Carrie White (Chloë Grace Moretz) has been raised by her over zealot religious mother Margaret (Julianne Moore.) She is socially awkward and has little idea how her body works such as menstruation.

At high school the shy and reserved Carrie faces bullying when she has her first period. Carrie also realises that she has telekinetic powers and tries to harness her powers.

One of the high school girl's wants to make amends for her bullying by getting her boyfriend to take Carrie out to the school prom. Another bully though plans to take revenge.

Moretz lacks the awkwardness and weirdness of Sissy Spacek.
