Storyline

This is the story of Carrie White, a lonely and painfully shy teenage girl with unbelievable telekinetic powers, and is slowly being pushed to the edge of insanity by frequent bullying from both cruel classmates at her school, and her own domineering, religious mother. One classmate, Sue Snell, feels sorry for Carrie and asks her boyfriend, Tommy Ross, to take Carrie to the senior prom instead of her. But another classmate, Chris Hargenson, is banned from the prom and is determined with her boyfriend to have her revenge on Carrie. Carrie soon discovers she has telekinetic powers; and when the most gruesome prank is played on her on prom night, anything can happen. Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Not that great
12 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

This version of Carrie was not totally horrible, but I wasen't totally impressed either. The worst part of the movie I thought was that it was very predictable. I understand that this movie is from a classic Steven King novel, but it was horror so I was hopeing to get atleast something out of it. Plus, most of the effects we're computerized. Like 90% of it, and you could tell. Living in an age of computers it was very dull. I also remember finishing the movie and going, thats it? I found the actress playing Carrie to be descent, as well as her teacher, but other then that, if you missed it when it came on tv, you didn't miss much.
