The Great Debate: Carrie (2013 Version)

"They're all going to laugh at you, They're all going to laugh at you".

I remember this line being said by Carrie White's mom in the 1976 version directed by Brian DePalma.  When this new version was being made I felt like those same words were being said to the cast and crew. After all we had an updated version of this when "The Rage: Carrie 2" came out in 1999. Next there was a 2002 TV mini series with Angela Bettis as the title character and Patricia Clarkson as the religious fanatic.  Now we have the same story again with  Chloe Grace Moretz as the troubled teen and Julianne Moore as the even more troubled mother. 

I have two reviews with very different opinions about this latest version.  Colin from The Cinematic Katzenjammer gave it eight reasons why it holds it's own.  While Dan over at Dan the Man's Movie Reviews gave it a two out of ten.   Click on the links below to read both reviews, and then tell me in the comments which one you liked more.   Thanks again for reading and have a great day.

Colin's Review 

Dan's Review


  1. Can't wait to see this. I'll check out both reviews right now! Thanks Vern

    1. I like Juliane Moore So I will see it based on her, but I'm still a bit unsure. Thanks for commenting

  2. Thanks for the linkage, Vern! I didn't think it would have happened, but apparently I was the ONLY miserable sad-sack who saw it this weekend. Oh well, I'll stand my ground until the death of me.

    1. It's one of those classic stories that could be told again and again. SO expect another remake of this very soon. Thanks for commenting

  3. I saw all the versions of Carrie and 76's one is still unbeatable. There are so many problems with this new one. Moretz is not right for the role, the direction is uninspired, the movie is all over the place. When something is not broken, why try to fix it?

    1. I did laugh when I read in your posts that she compared this to Black Swan. What a joke. Still I am a bit curious about seeing Julianne Moore in this

  4. I'll side with Dan on this one. It started poorly. It got worse, and then it never really got any better.

  5. Im hearing a lot of negative thoughts on this one too but I still want to see what they do with it. Thanks for the comment
