Everyone is anxiously awaiting Carrie, the 2013 adaptation of Stephen King’s story starring Chloë Grace Moretz–in theaters this Friday! But Carrie has already been retold in the 21st century–in 2002’s made-for-television movie Carrie. Starring Agnela Bettis (May), written by Bryan Fuller (Dead Like Me, Pushing Daisies, and TV’s Hannibal), and directed by David Carsons (Star Trek: Generations) the film has strong genre talent, but has been mostly forgotten. Does this remake deserve a second look? And can any insight into Friday’s release be gleaned by this 11-year-old version? Listen to Arnie, Jakob, and Stuart’s third Carrie review to find out!
