I know Carrie. When she pms-es, all around her will be in a world of pain!

Is she acting as Carrie?  I hope not

Carrie = Hit Girl

Actually, I don't think she is a good choice. A bit too pretty and too well known. Sissy Spacek in the original was perfect. Unsure, wild and there is a quality of mousy innocence about her portrayal and physical look. She really cemented the role of Carrie in my consciousness.

Actually, IMHO Elizabeth Olsen (Silent House and Martha Marcy May Marlene) would have been perfect.  A very under-rated actress. Anyway she just landed the role of Scarlet Witch in the new Avengers movie

Caught this classic cult hit back in the 1970s...Well, I am kindda disappointed with this movie, particularly on the poor choice of the protagonist for the role of Carrie. Granted Chloe Grace Moretz (better known as The Hick Girl in Kick Ass movie is a rising teen star...but her bubbly face just couldn't match the Sissy Spacek in the original Carrie. Sissy Spacek has that kind of "creepy" look on her face when she gets really pissed...not Chloe! The story line stays quite faithful to the original I have to say and of course you can expect more CGI and explosion which will not get to see in the original movie...BUT the "spirit" of Carrie "the devil girl", well...I can't find a shred of that "devilish" presence in Chloe. I find Chloe trying too hard to be the troubled teen in Stephen King's novel, so much so that I felt like watching a B-grade horror movie.


For a namesake movie, if the actress is not convincing, it ain't gonna work. Period.


My rating for this movie is 2/5.

There was an earlier thread for this. Perhaps Desray, you could merge them?
