Carrie (2013): A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
It’s all a bit of been there, done that with the latest reimagining of a horror classic.  As they mostly seem to be.  The biggest problem however with Carrie (2013) is that the usually excellent Chloe Moretz is lost at sea, be it through poor direction or just bad casting and being that the film’s success or failure heavily rests on her shoulders, that is an issue.  Add in an collection of faceless could be anyone ‘teen’ support cast and your left with a film that does nothing new, and what it delivers isn’t a patch on what was made before.

Best Bit: It’s pretty short.
