CarrieÂ is a 2013 American supernatural horror film. It is the third film adaptation of Stephen King'sÂ 1974 novel of the same name, thoughÂ Metro-Goldwyn-MayerÂ andÂ Screen Gems, who produced the film, employed a script that was reportedly more faithful to King's original novel. The film starsÂ ChloÃ« Grace MoretzÂ as the titularÂ Carrie White, andÂ Julianne MooreÂ as Carrie's mother,Â Margaret White.
Following the initial announcement of March 15, 2013 as the release date, the film's public launch was later postponed to October 18, 2013.
Alone in her home,Â Margaret WhiteÂ (Julianne Moore), a religious, yet disturbed woman, gives birth to a baby girl, intending to kill the infant but changes her mind. Years later, her daughterÂ Carrie, a shy, unassertive girl, nears her graduation from Ewen High School in Maine.
While showering after gym class at school, Carrie experiences herÂ first menstrual period. She naively thinks she is bleeding to death. The other girls laugh and tease her. Longtime bully Chris Hargensen (Portia Doubleday) records the event on hersmartphoneÂ and uploads it toÂ YouTube. Gym teacherÂ Miss DesjardinÂ (Judy Greer) comforts Carrie and sends her home with Margaret, who believes menstruation is a sin. Margaret demands that Carrie abstain from showering with the others. When Carrie refuses, Margaret hits her with a Bible and locks her in her "prayer closet". As Carrie screams to be let out, a crack appears on the door, and thecrucifixÂ in the closet begins to bleed.
Miss Desjardin informs the girls who teased Carrie that they will endure boot-camp style detention for their behavior. When Chris refuses, she is suspended from school and banned from the prom. She storms out, vowing revenge.
Carrie learns that she hasÂ telekinesis, the ability to move things with her mind. She researches her abilities, learning to harness them.Â Sue Snell(Gabriella Wilde) regrets teasing Carrie in the shower room and attempts to make amends by asking her boyfriend, Tommy Ross (Ansel Elgort), to take Carrie to the prom. Carrie accepts Tommy's invitation. When she tells her mother, Margaret forbids Carrie to attend. Asking her mother to relent, Carrie manifests her telekinesis. Margaret believes this power comes from theÂ DevilÂ and is proof that Carrie has been corrupted by sin.
Chris, her boyfriend Billy Nolan (Alex Russell), and his friends plan revenge on Carrie. They kill a pig and drain its blood into a bucket. Margaret tries to prevent Carrie from going to the prom, but Carrie telekinetically locks her mother in the closet. At the prom, Carrie is nervous and shy, but Tommy kindly puts her at ease. As part of Chris and Billy's plan, Chris' friend, Tina Blake (ZoÃ« Belkin), slips fake ballots into the voting box, which name Carrie and Tommy prom queen and king.
At home, Sue receives a text from Chris taunting her about her revenge on Carrie. Sue drives to the prom, arriving just as Carrie and Tommy are about to be crowned. Sue sees the bucket of pig's blood dangling above Carrie but, before she can warn anyone, Miss Desjardin hustles her out, suspecting that Sue is planning to humiliate Carrie.
Chris dumps the bucket of pig's blood onto Carrie and Tommy. The bucket falls onto Tommy's head, killing him. Chris's shower video appears on large screens above the stage, inciting laughter from some in the audience. Enraged, Carrie takes her revenge telekinetically, killing several of the students and staff (except for Miss Desjardin). A fire breaks out and, as the school burns to the ground, Carrie walks away, leaving a trail of fire and destruction in her wake. Chris and Billy attempt to flee in Billy's car. Chris urges Billy to run Carrie over, but Carrie flips the car into a gas station, setting the gas station on fire, and killing them.
Carrie arrives home and she and Margaret embrace. Margaret tells Carrie about the night of Carrie's conception. After having shared a bed platonically with her husband, they yielded to temptation one night and, after praying for strength, Carrie's father "took" Margaret, who enjoyed the experience. Margaret attacks Carrie, who attempts to flee but kills her with several sharp tools. She becomes hysterical and makes stones rain from the sky to crush the house. When Sue arrives, a furious Carrie grabs her with her powers, but senses something inside Sue, and tells her that her baby is a girl. Carrie pushes a stunned Sue out of the house to safety as the house collapses and apparently kills the Whites.
As a voice-over gives her testimony in court regarding the prom incident, Sue visits Carrie's grave and places a single white rose by the headstone. As she leaves, the gravestone's surface begins to break.
Blu-ray alternate ending
The gravestone crack and the court speech is not present. Sue is in the hospital trying to deliver her newborn baby. When the baby is about to come out, a bloody hand bursts out from her vagina and grabs Sue. She wakes up, screaming in fear and her mom tries to comfort her since the nightmare is over. A subliminal image reveals Carrie, bloody in her prom dress, holding Sue's baby.
