Synopsis: The outcast teenager Carrie White is bullied by her classmates at high school. Her mother, Margaret White, is a pious and paranoid woman that sees sin everywhere and the need of self-inflicting punishment. When Carrie has her first period, she does not understand what is happening to her and her classmates humiliate her in the changing room. The spiteful Chris Hargensen videotapes Carrie with her cell phone and posts it on the Internet. Their teacher Ms. Desjardin punishes the students, but when Chris challenges her, she is suspended and consequently is banned from the prom. Meanwhile, Carrie discovers that she has telekinesis and learns how to control her ability. Sue Snell, one of the girls that tormented Carrie, feels bad and asks her boyfriend Tommy Ross to invite Carrie to go with him to the prom to make up for what she did to Carrie. But Chris and her boyfriend Billy Nolan plot an evil prank with her friends to seek vengeance for Carrie.


Carrie I donít particularly look at as being scary or twisted or anything. One of the things I liked about it is that itís almost like a weird coming-of-age story for this girl. Itís almost like a huge anti-bullying campaign, which I donít know if the message it sends is actually good or bad: that if someoneís bullying you, you have license to exterminate them. But for the most part it was almost a dramatic picture of the life of this girl trying to fit in. The thematic element that goes along with the score came as a direct result of that. The music was not merely trying to provide a scary ambiance or enhance scares, but to play to the more dramatic nature of her character and her internal struggle.
