10 Differences Between the ‘Carrie’ Remake & Original 1976 Movie

Carrie-Differences-Remake-OriginalCarrie may have taken her telekinetic wrath from the 1970s to modern day, but beyond that, Kimberly Peirce’s Carrie falls right in line with the Brian De Palma original. However, even though the films hit all the same beats, share character names, and even some dialogue, the 2013 version isn’t a total copy and paste job. The structure stays the same, but by using a little modernization, additional character details and new scenes here and there, Peirce essentially recreates the same experience while trying to make it her own (read our Carrie remake review).

Whether or not that remake technique works for you, if you’re a fan of the original, it certainly makes pinpointing those differences an entertaining game. Check out all the changes we caught in the new Carrie and let us know which ones you spotted, too.

It goes without saying that the following post contains SPOILERS for Carrie and the 2013 Carrie remake.

‘Carrie’ Remake Bloodies Up New York Comic-Con

Wouldn’t it have been cool if someone doused Chloe Moretz in pig’s blood, and out of rage she sent objects flying throughout the room and the IGN Theater erupted in pure chaos? Sadly there’s no firsthand account of Carrie’s rage to report from New York Comic-Con, but Moretz, Julianne Moore, producer Kevin Misher and director Kimberly Peirce did offer up a sense of what we can expect from the highly anticipated remake.

With roots in the Stephen King novel, Carrie features Moretz as the title character, a teenager with an overbearing mother (Moore) and abusive peers who loses it, unleashing the wrath of her telekinetic powers on the town.

The Big Highlights

— The teaser (online this weekis short and sweet, but has a nice energy and eeriness to it. The environment, effects and camera movement hint at the modernization of the material and a potentially flashier shooting style. Too short to confirm the remake is going to be worthwhile, but it at least puts it on the right track.
