Chloe Grace Moretz is a very talented actress and played Carrie White beautifully.
Lincoln
The thing about this new “Carrie” is that it actually adds some layers from the book that were missing from the original film.
M. Bullions
The story is pretty bad because, at the end, Carrie... The movie felt like something was missing.

Tonight, I watched the screening of the new film adaptation of Stephen King's novel, "CARRIE". At first I was somewhat disappointed that it wasn't as faithful to the Stephen King novel as I hoped it would have been, but that's to be expected when you've been a devoted fan of the novel for almost ten years. After watching it on the big screen tonight, I can confidentially say that it definitely stands on its own as a solid film. My only disappointment is the running time of the theatrical cut. The pacing is good and quick, but it felt as though it could have been longer to flesh out the characters and tell the story properly. I do know for a fact that a lot of scenes were filmed, but were dropped from the theatrical cut during the editing process. Kimberly Peirce said in a interview that the original cut of the film was longer and a lot different than what we saw in theatres. I just hope the studios release a 'Director's Cut' on DVD and Blu-ray sometime down the track.

Chloe Grace Moretz (Carrie White) and Julianne Moore (Margaret White) give a solid performance and make their leading characters their own. Judy Greer (Miss Desjardin), Ansel Elgort (Tommy Ross), Gabriella Wilde (Sue Snell), Alex Russell (Billy Nolan) and Portia Doubleday (Chris Hargensen) give a solid performance and make their secondary characters their own. Director Kimberly Peirce does an excellent job focusing on the mother and daughter relationship, as well as the bullying aspect of the story. Composer Marco Beltrami delivers an incredible score which is hauntingly beautiful and unique in its own way. Cinematographer Steve Yedlin does a phenomenal job with the visuals throughout the film. There are a lot of scenes that are psychologically disturbing and emotionally moving -- it definitely makes you feel for Carrie.

For 38 years the original Carrie has remained one of the greatest horror movies ever made, a shining example of not only how to adapt a book into a movie, but also how to make you....Fear, so it was inevitable that a remake would be made.
To not compare this film to the original is impossible. Brian De Palma's version is an immersive experience, a psychological assault on the mind, you feel what Carrie White feels. Chloe Grace Moretz is an incredible actress, but her Carrie doesn't quite project her fears and emotions into us like Sissy Spacek's did.
In Kimberly Peirce's Carrie, the mother(played by Julianne Moore) nearly lacks the controlling dominance the original had over Carrie, Chloe Grace Moretz's Carrie right from the start doesn't hardly fear her mother, but instead shes defiant towards her, hates her, and this is what separates this new Carrie from the original. Brian De Palma's Carrie FEARS and Kimberly Peirce's Carrie HATES.
For the most part the majority of the middle of this film plays out almost identically to that of De Palma's, the actors are the only real difference. Some of the new actors are good and some are just terrible, like Judy Greer(Miss Desjardin / the P.E. teacher), she sounds so week and juvenile when shes speaking her lines it's hard to take her seriously as an authority figure.
Lets fast forward to the prom scene.

Usually, when watching a remake of a great movie, I'm looking for something new that it adds to the story or characters. If it doesn't bring anything fresh or original to the table, then why step in again at all? "Carrie" is an exception to that rule, however, as instead of providing any substantially new material it essentially gives the story/character an update into modern cinema.

For a basic plot summary, "Carrie" tells the story of young Carrie White (Chloe Grace Moretz), a strange girl who lives with her religious fanatic mother Margaret (Julianne Moore). When Carrie is humiliated at school after unknowingly receiving her first "curse of blood" (menstrual period) in the women's locker room, she begins to develop inexplicable telekinetic powers. Drawing the ire of school "mean girl" Chris Hargensen (Portia Doubleday) but gaining the friendship of Sue Snell (Gabrielle Wild), Carrie is asked to prom by Tommy Ross (Ansel Elgort) in what turns out to be the defining night of her life in more ways than one.

Despite being little more than a straight remake of the original, I still thoroughly enjoyed the concept of the new "Carrie" because of how it brings the story into the modern cinematic cannon. This is one of the great coming-of-age stories ever told (adapted from the pen of Stephen King, his first widely successful written work), but getting the younger folk to see the original would be like pulling teeth. Show them the trailer for Sissy Spacek's "Carrie" and they will blow it off as a "typical weird 70s movie" (which of course it isn't at all, but...).
