Trivia

Angela Bettis was recruited for the role of Carrie White after people involved in the project saw her work in May (2002). She filmed Carrie after May, but May was not released in theatres until after Carrie aired on television. Many viewers are confused by this and think that Bettis was cast as May after her work in Carrie. See more »

A unique take on the original
30 November 2004 | by (Brisbane Australia) – See all my reviews

I think everyone knows the story of Carrie. The strange innocent misfit who's teased mercilessly and maliciously by a few of her school peers. and develops her telekinetic powers to protect herself after a particularly cruel and humiliating prank is pulled on her.

Well, I think I enjoyed this because it put a different spin on the original story. That is, the story is told after the fact in a series of interviews conducted by the police.

The movie has a good cast and the script is good. The special effects, while used to good effect, aren't particularly 'special', but the camera work, particularly in the ballroom scene when everyone is panicking, is deplorable. I've taken better home movies. Still, if you can ignore that....

Overall I really enjoyed this telemovie and would recommend it to anyone who wants a bit of a scare and to be entertained, and not

I'll probably be burned at the stake for this too, but I preferred Angela Bettis charactisation of Carrie to Sissy Spaceks in the original.
