The big screen remake of the 1976 movie that catapulted Sissy Spacek to fame, which was based on the book of the same name by Stephen King.
A sheltered high school girl unleashes her newly developed telekinetic powers after she is pushed too far by her peers.
Directed by Kimberly Peirce, (director of Hilary Swank’s first Oscar winning movie, Boys Don’t Cry), this remake could be good. But it is completely unnecessary, since the original is a classic. What’s next? A remake of The Godfather or E.T.?
The original Carrie was directed by Brian DePalma, and Piper Laurie played the role of Carrie’s mother. In this remake, five-time Oscar loser Julianne Moore plays Carrie’s mother.
Both Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie were nominated for Oscars for their roles in the original, 1976 movie Carrie.
