Carrie ★★½

An unnecessary reboot but not without its charms. Some interesting changes to the original -- particularly around Sue, her altruistic(?) motivations and that ending with her pregnancy. (The cynic in me believes this was a soft way of setting up a reboot sequel.) But it ultimately doesn't hold up to the style of the iconic original.

(Why Hooptober2022? 1 Stephen King adaptation that is not the first go around)
