Carrie ★½ 2002

This remake (broadcast on NBC) of King's first novel was stretched to three hours (with commercials) by introducing new characters and using flashbacks. Face it, what you want to see is the outcast Carrie (Bettis) getting her telekinetic revenge on all her tormentors at the high school prom. That's about the last half-hour, so just fast-forward to the good stuff. 132m/C VHS, DVD . Angela Bettis, Patricia Clarkson, Rena Sofer, Tobias Mehler, Kandyse McClure, Emilie de Ravin, Katharine Isabelle, David Keith, Jasmine Guy; D: David Carson; W: Bryan Fuller; C: Victor Goss; M: Laura Karpman.
