18 December 1999 | Roddy-15
Avoid this Carrie rip-off
This is definitely the average horror film. A frustrated teenager seeking revenge--where have I seen this plot before? People being killed everywhere. And a movie that goes nowhere fast. In this film, a fifteen years old girl is constantly teased because she is kind of fat. And she happens to have psychic powers. But she is also into the occult. Maybe I didn't watch it well, and I won't watch it again, but I believe the movie is basically saying her psychic powers developed because she had been into the occult. Or something like that.

As I watched the film, I couldn't get past the idea that Carrie had gained weight. Not many twists in this film. Totally empty except for the performances by the actors including a young Helen Hunt.
