Sometimes being a teenage girl is a real hassle. Just ask Carrie White, the poor protagonist of Stephen King's horror novel "Carrie." The telekinetic misfit is tortured by the other girls and abused by her fanatically religious mom at home, but the final straw is when she's crowned Prom Queen as a joke and then liberally doused with pig's blood. Once the plasma hits the floor, Carrie unleashes her mental powers on those present and manages to wipe out everyone at the prom (and then some).

Sissy Spacek snagged an Oscar nomination for her performance as the meek teen in Brian De Palma's 1976 adaptation, as did Piper Laurie for her properly banana portrayal of Carrie's mom. In October, we'll get a gander at a whole new "Carrie," directed by Kimberly Peirce ("Stop-Loss," "Boys Don't Cry") with Chloe Moretz in the title role and Julianne Moore as her manic mama.

In honor of the remake, let's take a look back at 10 more teenage girls in movies who've gone bad.
