Brian De Palma's 1976 adaption of Carrie set the bar extremely high for any future interpretations, with the director's operatic sensibilities proving an ideal match for Stephen King's potent Revenge-of-the-Nerd novel. Anchored by Sissy Spacek's fearless, rawboned performance, the film captured both the tremulous vulnerability of the main character and the horrifyingly indiscriminate force of her retaliation. (The climactic scene was shot in split-screen for a reason.) The newest take on the story has plenty of reasons to recommend it--most notably an intriguingly complex push-and-pull relationship between Carrie and her domineering mother--but it never quite balances the mixture of pathos and scares that makes the original linger so fiercely. Beginning with a commendably tense birth scene, the remake sticks close to the source material, in which a henpecked teenager (Chloë Grace Moretz) struggles to escape the grasp of her religious zealot mother (a scarily quiet Julianne Moore). After a locker room incident puts her in the sights of the high school elite, her discovery of her burgeoning supernatural talents leads to an unforgettable prom night. Director Kimberly Peirce, whose treatment of an outsider in the excellent Boys Don't Cry made her an inspired choice for the material, absolutely nails the current scary state of high school bullying, where the existence of camera phones allows even the slightest humiliation to reach a mass audience. That understanding, combined with the strong work of Moretz, Moore, and an able supporting cast (including Judy Greer as a sympathetic teacher), ensures that King's savage metaphor for adolescence still stings. The biggest difference between the 1976 and 2013 versions, ultimately, comes in the conception of the title character, who registers here as a much more assured figure, displaying a measure of control over her powers and judiciously doling out punishment while (mostly) sparing the innocent. While Carrie's night at the gym still delivers a gory charge, the decision to have a more proactive heroine makes this rendition feel less like a horror movie, and more like a twisted superhero origin story. --Andrew Wright
