Carrie (2002) Based on the Stephen King novel, this is a made-for-TV remake of the 1976 classic horror flick about an abused, mousy girl with telekinetic powers. Carrie White, whose unique powers are showcased early on, is an introspective teenager whose religiously fanatic mother, Margaret, raises her in an almost hateful manner. Life is worse at school: Her cruel classmates constantly taunt her at every turn. Things escalate when Carrie freaks out in gym class when she has her first period, resulting in her classmates pulling an act that crosses the lines of heinousness. Carrie's teachers stick up for her, banning instigator Chris Hargenson from the school prom. One of the involved girls feels guilty for her actions by setting her boyfriend up as Carrie's prom date. But Chris raises the stakes by hatching a plot with her boyfriend to humiliate Carrie at the prom. Everything goes according to plan ... that is, except for Carrie's reaction. And it's a reaction that has everyone regretting that they ever wrongly passed Carrie's path.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Carrie White: Does everyone think they can go on playing tricks on me?
  • Chris Hargensen: This isn't over. This is so not over, it's not even in the same area code as over!
  • Helen Shyres: Oh my god, where did you get that dress? Carrie White: I made it. Helen Shyres: [Impressed] Shut up! Carrie White: You shut up! Helen Shyres: Seriously, you made that? Carrie White: I did. I... I like to sew. It's a real simple pattern. [walks past Helen] Helen Shyres: [gasps] Look at your ass! Carrie White: What? Helen Shyres: Okay, after seeing your ass, the whole "nun in street clothes" thing is no longer acceptable. Tommy Ross: [to Carrie] That was a compliment.
  • [Talking 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.
  • Sue Snell: [watching Chris walk in] Has Chris said anything? Helen Shyres: Only that she hates your guts.
Movie Trivia:
  • Bryan Fuller had certain scenes edited so that it would appear that Carrie didn't blink while using her telekinetic power. Obvious scenes in which Angela Bettis's blinks were edited out include the "practice" scene and the prom rampage.
  • 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.
  • Bryan Fuller added some more positive dialogue about religion after he was asked to do so by David Keith. One example is the scene in which Carrie makes statements about her own faith as opposed to her mother's views.
  • This television remake of Carrie (1976) was first aired exactly 26 years and one day after the original first hit theaters.
  • It took three days to shoot the blood scene.
