Storyline

After the suicide of her only friend, Rachel Lang has never felt more on the outside. The one person who reached out to her, Jessie Ryan, also happens to be part of the popular crowd that lives to torment outsiders like her. However, Rachel has something else that separates her from the rest, secret amazing powers to move things with her mind. Sue Snell, the only survivor of Carrie White's rampage 23 years ago, may hold the key to helping Rachel come to terms with her awesome, but unwanted powers. But as Rachel slowly learns to trust, a terrible trap is being laid for her, and making her angry could prove to be deadly. Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Trivia

The name of the insane asylum in the film is "Arkham", a reference to a town in the works of H.P. Lovecraft. The name of the asylum in Batman comics is a similar tribute. See more »

Goofs

The first time we see the tape of Rachel and Jesse having sex (during the party on the large TV screens), the shot is from the right side of the bed (the bed header is to the right). Later on, when we see the tape again (Rachel hears when Jesse say he loves her, playing the tape and rewinding it several times, increasing the zoom each time), the shot has moved to the opposite side of the bed (similar in location to where the camera is located right after that scene took place when we first see him tell her he loves her).

Its greatest asset is also its greatest drawback.
15 June 1999 | by (Sandpoint, ID) – See all my reviews

Yes, you read that right.

Emily Bergl is this films greatest asset. She can actually act and looks sincere. The only problem is that she's far too good looking for the role. That may sound shallow, but throughout the movie, we're supposed to get the impression that she's "ugly" and because of that, she's an outcast. Contrast this to Sissy Spacek in the original who looked plain enough to carry out the role of "ugly duckling". It was only her talent that let Bergl carry (pun not intended) out the role convincingly.

The antoganists are unusually shallow, especially when presented against the more modern bad guys in horror films, at least where you can see the bad guy. Though at least one of the bad girls is convincing as Rachel's new friend.

Jason Landon does an amiable job as Rachel's boyfriend and lends a lot of credibility to the final scene which, I must say, is a refreshing change from the hand coming out of the ground scenes popularized by the original Carrie.

All in all, a refreshingly entertaining and, dare I say, well done show.
