The posters declare “You Will Know Her Name” but for fans of horror, Brian DePalma, or Stephen King you already know her name–Carrie, the outcast girl whose telekinetic powers will be both her salvation and her damnation. When it was announced this film was being adapted to screen for a third time even original author King said “Why, when the original was so good?”.
