Alright, you guys already know for me which one it is: the 1976 version of course, didn't like the 2013 (except the ending but that's it) and I've never watched the 2002 and wouldn't watch it either. The 1976 is one of the best seventies horror movies I've ever seen.
What about you guys, which version of Carrie from Stephen King?
Original from 1976 for me. I've never seen the '02 version either, and to me the 2013 remake felt like it was trying to be the same as the original, just updated for today. I don't know, hard to beat Sissy Spacek as Carrie and Piper Laurie as her mother. Definitely a classic to me.

The original is a timeless classic, and with the classic charm that the original "Halloween" and "Christine" have. The remakes just don't have it like the original does. The guys playing the boyfriends in the remakes also don't have it like John Travolta and William Katt did.

I wil say this, good casting with Julianne Moore in the 2013 though. Okay maybe not as memorable as Piper Laurie, as that is a hard feat to beat as the God-fearing Margaret White, even since I was a kid her performance in carrie always left a lasting memory.
I was checking spelling and didn't realise Piper Laurie recently passed away. R.I.P.
