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.
Ivana Baquero was considered to play Chris Hargensen but Portia Doubleday was cast.
While Sue and her friends are decorating the gym for prom, Heather is sitting above Lizzy, but in the next shot, Heather and Lizzy have switched spots.
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.
