Story: Carrie (Moretz) is a misfit teenager in small-town America who's victimized and bullied by her fellow students. Her mother Margaret White (Moore) is extremely religious. After Carrie is driven over the edge, she unleashes hell on those who tormented her.

Review: Carrie is a simple, almost painfully naive girl who is socially awkward as a result of her extremely sheltered upbringing. Her fellow students shun her rather than attempt to understand her. Carrie's utter lack of social skills also makes her an easy target for her victimizers. The passive aggressiveness she faces turns into blatant bullying during one harrowing incident.

While showering after gym class she has her period for the first time and not knowing what it means, thinks she is bleeding to death. The other girls in the locker room realize that she doesn't know what's going on and laugh at her. They are merciless in their mockery and reduce the poor girl to tears. Gym teacher Miss Desjardin (Greer) comes to her aid and sends the stricken girl home to her mother.

Later, student Sue Snell (Wilde) tries to make good with Carrie by allowing her boyfriend Tommy (Elgort) to take Carrie to the prom. Predictably, Margaret refuses Carrie permission. Frustrated with her life, Carrie's latent rage becomes malevolent and begins to manifest itself in truly terrifying ways. It all comes to a head on a prom night bloodbath.

While Carrie begins eerily enough, there is a turning point where the screenplay abandons psychological horror of the kind that Shutter or The Conjuring dish out, and goes for full-gear gore instead. It then becomes more graphic and visceral rather than creepy. Moretz is quite convincing in her role as Carrie and Moore's portrayal of Margaret is quite unsettling. Some of the film's best moments occur between Carrie and Margaret.

Although it cannot top Brian de Palma's 1976 movie, this retelling does allow more empathy for Carrie; she is not evil just for the heck of it. It's a case of the underdog suddenly becoming an overlord.
