The Stephen King thriller has been remade before - for TV in 2002 - but this latest version adds very contemporary themes to the story of the telekinetic teenager, played here by Chloe Grace Moretz, who makes others regret having made her the target of their meanness.

As usual, things reach their peak at a school prom no attendee ever will forget ... provided he or she survives it. Director Kimberly Peirce ("Boys Don't Cry") also draws a fine performance from Julianne Moore as Carrie's possessive mother. DVD extras: theatrical trailer; two "making-of" documentaries. *** (R: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
