      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      This made-for-TV adaptation of Stephen King's classic fails to impress or bring anything new to the table, - or to the prom - paling even more in comparison to the 1970's memorable version.

      User N I was pleasantly surprised by this adaption. While it's true that making a remake was unnecessary, remember, just like the 2013 reboot, at that time 2002 was considered modern so at the time it felt like they were making a remake that would be considered very modern for a long time. For example, Carrie learns about telekinesis on a computer. The cast are all very talented actors, with particular praise earned by Angela Bettis as Carrie and Patricia Clarkson as Margaret. Angela's acting is simply superb. Arguably better than Sissy Spacek. While the 1976 Carrie White is sheltered and doesn't understand social politics, here Carrie White is more mature and socially aware, she knows when she's being made fun of and her emotions are brought out incredibly well. In the 1976 version, Piper Laurie gave quite an over-the-top portrayal of Margaret, doing very well with the abusive parent arc and definitely doing well, Here, Margaret is still abusive and overly strict but calm and level-headed and shows some genuine love for her daughter. Piper Laurie was great, and so was Patricia Clarkson. The special effects aren't even that bad, just very obvious. This film had a very cheap production. The film is also much more faithful to the book than the 1976 version. It has a bad reputation but honestly, Carrie 2002 is not bad! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 09/25/23 Full Review ryker d It's weird in a way I don't hate this movie but I also wish that I had never seen it I have a complicated relationship with this movie at least it was something new and it added a new things and interesting things unlike the 2013 remake i'd say it's worth at least two watches Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review AUBREE F Carrie is a great movie for those just getting into horro movies. This movie didn't scare me at all, It's a great way to start to introduce horror movies when your kid out grows goosebumps. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/19/22 Full Review Gian S Very amazing. MUST have on your watch list. The only con I have is the long run time, but overall amazing movie. This one actually more complete than the other versions which I found pleasing. 10/10 👏❤️ Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/18/22 Full Review Audience Member Who thought it was a good idea to remake an absolute masterpiece, i.e., the 1976 original? Did Stephen King sign off on this? If so, for shame! And how did they get Patricia Clarkson to buy into it? Skip this one and watch the original. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member This was an awesome movie the kills were good and wow just amazing although didn’t like how a bucket can kill someone.

      Hal Boedeker Orlando Sentinel Poor little Carrie didn't need the big buildup. She's too familiar as it is, and despite a worthy star, she's all dressed up with no new, intriguing place to go. Jan 16, 2020 Full Review Mike McDaniel Houston Chronicle In the hands of director David Carson (Star Trek: Generations; From the Earth to the Moon), NBC's updated Carrie is more effective than I anticipated. The film -- especially the first half -- had me in a spell. Rated: B Jan 16, 2020 Full Review Phil Gallo Variety Too much of "Carrie" feels padded, that we're watching an extra 45 seconds or a minute in certain scenes just to get them to fill out the time until the commercial break or allow in more f/x. Jan 16, 2020 Full Review Tom Jicha South Florida Sun-Sentinel It ranks with the finest of TV's adaptations of Stephen King. Granted, that's not saying much, but this Carrie is popcorn-chomping fun. Jan 16, 2020 Full Review Leigh Monson Birth.Movies.Death. 2002's Carrie will just have to remain this strange oddity of bizarre intent and hilariously botched execution. Jan 16, 2020 Full Review Patrick Bromley Daily Dead Carson is essentially remaking De Palma's movie, and badly at that. Rated: 2/5 Jan 15, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews
