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}

[Speaking about Carrie White]
Detective John Mulcahey: Was she a friend of yours?
Sue Snell: Carrie didn't have any friends.
Detective John Mulcahey: When I was in high school, even the biggest losers had a bird of a feather.
Sue Snell: She wasn't a loser. She just didn't belong.
Detective John Mulcahey: Why do you think that is?
Sue Snell: It's not brain surgery. We are talking about Carrie White.
Detective John Mulcahey: Maybe she didn't want to belong.
Sue Snell: Everybody wants to belong. Anyone who tells you they don't is lying. I think Carrie wanted it more than any of us.

Carrie's third time
7 December 2004 | by artizonSee all my reviews

Carrie was originally a nerdy girl who was tormented over and over. Next, she was a goth who was videotaped having sex. This time, she's an epileptic girl struggling with life as a whole. Instead of doing a third one, the people decided to do something that people would rather see- remake the original loosely and transform it into a polished version of the book. While I do love the original, this one is closer to the book. There are a mere three things that I hated- the ending was stupid and Patricia Clarkson was too toned down for the role. They should have gone with a direct clone of Piper Laurie's flawless version of the character. Also, th pig blood dumping scene sucked this time. Ironically, all of the original's blonde characters are brunette here, and vice versa. The ending sort of copied the graveyard sequence at the end of the first one, but isn't as scary. But as a whole, this third in a blooming series was quite good and worth a few watches.
