Suggested correction: When you watch the movie leading up to that event, it's obvious that Norma is a tomboy, and is always wearing a ball cap and wearing her hair like that. It's who she is and perhaps decided after her hair was done that it wasn't really like her and decided to go back to her look after she saw the result.

Revealing mistake: At the very end, when Sue is walking towards Carrie's grave site to place flowers on the grave, a car in the distance crosses an intersection backwards, giving away the method used to create the weird walk - playing the film in reverse.

Continuity mistake: At the prom scene after the bucket of blood has fallen there is a frontal shot of Carrie without the tiara she had been wearing. The subsequent overhead shot shows the tiara clearly visible. (01:13:10)

Revealing mistake: When Sue Snell wakes from her nightmare, listen carefully as her mother comforts her. At one point, she calls her Amy, which is the actress's real name (they're mother and daughter in real life).

Continuity mistake: At the end when Carrie's mom stabs her in the back and she rolls down the stairs,we can see blood on her back.But later when Carrie has telekinetically killed her mom and is dragging her into the closet,the blood has disappeared.

Visible crew/equipment: As the house is crumbling in on itself in one of the last scenes, there are a couple of shots of the ceiling being pushed in by some 'unseen force'. If you look closely as the last bit is falling, you can catch a glimpse of a hand and black sleeve pushing it in.

Continuity mistake: When Carrie breaks a mirror in her house late in the movie, you could see it was shattered. When her mother enters, the mirror only has a few cracks in it. If Carrie put the pieces back with her mind, there would be more cracks.

Continuity mistake: After Carrie wreaks havoc on the high school prom and exits the high school Gym at the end keep an eye on the streamers in the windows. They aren't even burning. You can tell the fire is super-imposed by the camera.

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the film, between the time Carrie finishes her bath after the prom and the time her mother stabs her, the wetness of Carrie's hair changes from shot to shot. When she first puts on her nightgown, her hair is almost dry; later on, about when her mother says, "We'll pray," her hair is very damp; when her mother stabs her, her hair is almost dry again.
