Carrie was originally a novel by horror master Stephen King and made into a film by Brian De Palma in 1976. The film starred an up incoming John Travolta, Piper Laurie, and Sissy Spacek as the title character. A TV Movie was made in 2002 based on the King novel featuring Angela Bettis as Carrie and was directed by David Carson (Star Trek: Generations).
