‘Carrie’ is a dispiriting remake of horror classic

Moretz and Julianne Moore.

I guess we had our hopes too high. The new “Carrie” is a thoroughly dispiriting remake — “retread” is the appropriate word — that could have been directed by any proficient Hollywood hack. It steps carefully in the footprints of De Palma’s film, sometimes down to the shot language, and retells this story without ever giving us a reason to watch it again.
