Corrected entry: In the scene where Carrie is looking at herself in the mirror in her room, the glass smashes and you see the fragments fall on the dressing table. On this dressing table there is a night light figure of Holy Mary holding baby Jesus and it has clearly been broken. Later in the scene, you see the night light again and it is intact.
Corrected entry: When the gym teacher is yelling at the girls while they are lined up, she looks at one of the girls and calls her Kate; however, during the rest of the movie, she is called Helen.
Corrected entry: At the end of the film, when Carrie has killed her mother with the knives, Carrie pulls one knife out that was keeping her mum's right arm pinned to the wooden frame. Then Carrie yanks the other hand out, before she pulls her into the closet. As she yanks this arm off, you can hear that this noise doesn't sound what it should sound like, sounding more like a cork being pulled out of a wine bottle. (01:28:30)
Corrected entry: During the film you see tons of images of the "crucified Jesus",Carrie's mother going door to door to evangelize people and at the end making the sign of the cross with a butcher knife before she goes to kill Carrie. Only one problem. Catholics don't evangelize so how could Carrie's mother be Catholic?Leonard Hassen
Corrected entry: When Sue and Tommy are talking to Miss Collins about Tommy taking Carrie to the prom, in one shot, when they are seated, 1. Sue's bag strap falls off her shoulder 2. Tommy and Sue are seated far apart. Then in the next shot, Sue's bag strap is back on her shoulder, and they are both sitting side by side.
Corrected entry: When Carrie is walking home in the dark, covered in blood, Chris and her boyfriend are heading towards her in their car, ready to run her over. Carrie turns around and causes their car to tip, roll over and burst into flames. As the car is rolling with flames covering it, a tyre rolls past. You'd think it would be from that car, but as the tyre rolls past you can see that there are four tires still on the car.
Continuity mistake: When Norma and Helen are in the salon, and they are talking about Carrie going to the prom with Tommy, Norma is getting a fancy hairdo done for the prom. But in the next gym scene, she has her plain braids and a cap on. (00:48:20)Hamster
