Bryan Depalma's take on Stephen King's Carrie is still considered a cinema classic after all these years, but if there's any worthy criticism of the film it's that it took a story that's essentially a "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned" tale and told it from a very masculine perspective. Well Kimberly Pierce's 2013 update definitely kicked the testosterone down a couple of notches and the result was surprisingly entertaining for a story that's so iconic that it couldn't help but feel familiar.
