Carrie White, a shy, friendless teenage girl who is sheltered by her domineering, religious mother, unleashes her telekinetic powers after being humiliated by her classmates at her senior prom.
In the book, Chris has quite a history as a bully, and refers to the misfits she likes to terrorize as "Mortimer Snerds". (King even describes Chris as having blown one kids toes off; when she put firecrackers in her shoe). "Mortimer Snerd's" is a name of one of Edgar Bergen's puppets. It's also a pun because Mortimer is the name of the principal as well. And of course Mortimer Snerds sounds like Mortimer's Nerds. This nickname is not mentioned in the movie.
Okay! Game Point: 15-14, this team serves!
When the blood falls on Carrie, it really only hits the left side of her hair and her shoulders. In following shots, she is soaked in blood.
Even though the version shown on TBS is censored, the "Carrie White eats shit" graffiti is visible in the gym when Miss Collins lectures the girls who humiliated Carrie.
