'Carrie' redux - not necessary, but fine
Posted on Friday, Oct 18, 2013
I'm not sure a remake of Carrie, Brian De Palma's classic 1976 adaptation of Stephen King's high school horror novel, is at all necessary. (In fact, I'm pretty sure it's not.) But if you're going to take another stab at this tale of a taunted, traumatized teen who exacts fiery revenge on, well, everyone, then Kimberly Peirce is the director to do it.
