Windy City Times

Perhaps the biggest flaw in this remake has to do with the ethereal beauty of its leading lady.

A wan retelling which pales in practically every department when compared to the '76 model.

Peirce's imagery is pungent: the mark of Carrie's bloody palm print on the eggshell blue of her gym teacher's skirt; a slow-motion whirling sateen dervish of a student and her gown in flames.

Not only doesn't Carrie add anything particularly new to the mix, it fails to stand on its own feet and cohere its somewhat disparate components.

FILMINK (Australia)

For all its positives, unfortunately, when the inevitable comparisons to both King, and Brian De Palma's 1976 version arise, Carrie does fall short.

Repeats the past with less thrilling but more profound results.

It's all just a series of scenes taking from DePalma's playbook, and going through the motions.

Peirce wants to make a hit, and, even with source material this strange, it feels as though she has. But if so, that's all she has made.

SFX Magazine

Feels like someone copied a schoolmate's work and added a lot of their own occasionally enlightening but largely unnecessary scribbles.

December 6, 2013

This classic worm-turns tale rights a few of the original's wrongs and offers a sad and scary performance by Moretz, although she's almost upstaged by Moore, whose misogynist Bible-bashing is more extreme than Piper Laurie's in the original.

This is a sturdy tale that deserves to find a new audience. It's just a shame they won't find anything new in the process.

The new Carrie is cowardly and artistically empty. If you avoid one movie this year, make it this one.

The Mercury

It might be remade almost shot-for-shot, but times have changed since the `70s, and I personally think Peirce's clear agenda for updating its dominant themes is a welcome one.

This cyber-age version didn't raise a single hair on the back of my neck.

Begs that age-old remake-of-a-classic question of why even bother, even if the very capable actors do the best that they possibly can.

It looks uncannily at home in 2013.

Daily Mirror [UK]

This remake of the classic 1976 horror film can't match the original, but this is still a great Stephen King story about hormonal confusion and religious fervour.

It's perfectly watchable, but I've been more scared at a vicarage tea party.

The special effects may have moved on over the past 40 years but virtually every other aspect of the film is inferior to its predecessor.
