When you're making a movie based on a Stephen King novel, this stuff kind of goes with the territory.

  • The very last scene of the movie, where Carrie's hand reaches up from the ashes to grab Sue, terrified an entire generation of moviegoers, and helped to establish the "final reel Jump Scare" as a horror movie tradition.
  • The entire premise of an Ordinary High School Student snapping and going on a murder spree. Especially in hindsight.
  • In the 1976 movie, the shot of Carrie covered in pig's blood.
