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.

or anything?

if you want to stop or anything.

- Hi, Madeline.

- Sergeant.


Don't be nervous, OK?

I'm not nervous.

You want a donut?

Pastry cream.

Hot right now.

Come on.

You know,

these traditional glazed...

are like heroin...

highly addictive.

- You ever try heroin, Sue?

- No.

Good girl.

It's nasty stuff.

- Cocaine?

- No.

Hit a little "X"?

Occasional joint?

- No.

- Good for you.

We're all set.

We're all set. All right.

Thank you, Madeline.

State your name

for the record, please.

Sue Snell.

I want to talk

about Carrie White.

What do you want to know?

It's Jeremy, right?

- Norma.

- Yes, Mr. Schernhorst?

Norma, what were you

doing last night?

Could I possibly borrow

your Elvis pen?

You know, just...


Did you do the homework?

You guys are really annoying.

Just sit down, OK?

Stop it.

You know

what I'm talking about?

Get out of here.

Yeah, I mean you.

All right,

butts in the seats.

- Carrie White.

- Here.

It's not roll call, Carrie.

You're excused

per your mother's request.

You might as well head down

to the library right now.

Shouldn't people like that

be home-schooled?

People like what, Chris?

Creepy religious people.

Give it a rest.

- Mr. Schernhorst.

- What?

I'm a creepy religious person.

Can I be excused?

Shut up, Kenny.

- Shut up, Kenny.

- Yes, Kenny, shut up.

All right.

Was she a friend of yours?

Carrie didn't have any friends.

When I was in high school...

even the biggest losers

had birds of a feather.

She wasn't a loser.

She just didn't belong.

Why do you think that is?

It's not brain surgery.

We are talking

about Carrie White.

Maybe she didn't want to belong.

Everybody wants to belong.

Anyone who tells you

they don't is lying.

I think Carrie wanted it

more than any of us.

Check it out.

Are you telling me

it's mine or what?

Whatever. Let's go.


she's been eyeing him...

I don't know,

praying for him.

Hey, hey,

come here, come here.

See? Look over there.

Hey, Ross.


I think somebody wants you

to help her to see God.

You know, God? Oh, yeah.

Oh, yeah, God.

Oh, God.

Oh, God. Oh, yeah. Oh, God.

You ass!

Is my nose bleeding, dude?

No, seriously, come on.

Do I got a...

Bases loaded.

OK, come on, Carrie.

Come on, girls!

Strike two.

Carrie, you can do it.

Just keep your eyes

on the ball.

You think she's retarded?

Miss, miss, miss, miss!

Tina, knock it off.

OK, come on, Carrie.

Strike three.

That's it, girls.

Game's over.

Hit the showers.

Let's go, let's go!


No chance with her on our team.

No chance at all.

Carrie, you're such a loser.

"Oh, I can't hit the ball."

Hit the ball, loser.

You suck.

Yeah. Really?

Dude, Carrie's

Aunt Flo's in town.

- She's freaking out!

- Are you serious?

- Yes. Come on.

- Oh, my God.

Did you get your period?

Period! Period! Period!

Knock it off!

What are you doing?

She just got her period,

that's all.

Get out, everybody!

Get out! Get out!


Carrie, come on.

I'm sorry! I'm sorry!

Come on, come on.

I'm sorry. I'm sorry.


All right, Carrie.

Carrie! Carrie?

It's OK.

Am I dying?


Isn't she a little...

Old? For her first?

Yeah. Most girls

have theirs at twelve.

I got mine when I was ten.


I was wearing white pants.

Oh, my God,

I was mortified. I...

The point is,

up until half an hour ago...

Carrie White thought

her first period was homeroom.

That's good... homeroom.

It's not a joke.

She thought

she was bleeding to death.

I just...

I find it hard to believe

that in this day and age...

a girl wouldn't know...


Look at who her mother is.

It's not our place to interfere

in people's beliefs.

What about the other girls?

What are we going to do

about them?

They'll have to be disciplined.

In the meantime, I think...

What's her name?

Carrie should be sent home

for the rest of the day.

Send in Carrie Wright.

It's Carrie White.

Come in, Cassie.

Miss Fish, can we get

a dismissal slip, please?

We feel it would be best...

if you went home

for the rest of the day...

and took care of yourself.

We're very sorry

about all this, Cassie.

- It's Carrie.

- Do you need a ride?

We can call a cab

if you need one.

No, she can walk.

The fresh air will do her good.

Carrie, I'm going to excuse you

from gym for a week.

I think you should

take study hall instead.

As I said...

we're very sorry

about all this, Cassie.

It's Carrie!

- Gross.

- Yeah.

Plug it up, baby.

What are those, Carrie?

Thank you.

God, I hate her.

Creepy Carrie!


What are those?


I wish I had some.

You have to wait a few years,

but you'll get them...

and I bet

they'll be real pretty, too.

No, I won't.

Mama says good girls don't.

She said what?

Good girls don't get...

Your mother's a total hypocrite.

She's a "C" cup.

Mama says she was bad

when she made me.

That's why she has 'em.

Calls 'em dirty pillows.

Dirty pillows.

Afternoon, Margaret.

Carrie, get over here.

What did I tell you?

Calm down, Margaret.

We were just talking.

Don't tell me to calm down,

whore girl.

Margaret, I asked you

not to call my daughter that.

- Suck it, you cow.

- Estelle!

Carrie, get in this house...

right now.

Do yourself a favor

and run away from home.

Estelle, quiet.
