Carrie White (Angela Bettis) is going through an extremely difficult time. As she struggles to come to terms with the feminine changes that adolescence brings, she has also developed a sort of telekinetic power that she is unable to fully control. Carrie attempts to shut herself off from the rest of the school, but teasing pranksters have targeted her for their next practical joke.
This 2002 TV-Movie follows Stephen King's source novel faithfully, offering a variety of scares, twists, and special effects that were absent from Brian DePalma's 1976 theatrical release. Patricia Clarkson stands out as Carrie's bizarre mother.
