R | | Drama, Horror
A shy girl, outcasted by her peers and sheltered by her religious mother, unleashes telekinetic terror on her small town after being pushed too far at her senior prom.
When approaching the telekinetic powers, Kimberly Peirce went through the script page by page and gave a number rating from 1-10 for the level of Carrie's powers during the telekinesis sequences.
When Carrie is in the shower and has her first period, she appears naked. However, when people are throwing tampons on her (while she is on the floor), she is wearing underwear.
The theatrical version ends with a brief scene of Sue in court for the White Investigation (an integral part of the Stephen King novel otherwise omitted from the film) and then laying a flower on Carrie White's grave, which cracks as she walks away. The alternate Blu-Ray cut omits the courtroom scene and features a different edit of Sue placing the flower on Carrie's grave. This scene is followed with Sue in the delivery room giving birth, but instead of a baby, Carrie's arm emerges from between her legs and grabs her. Quick-cut to Sue's mother, who's holding and trying to awaken her hysterical, pregnant daughter from this nightmare.
