Carrie

The snobby girls vote Carrie Prom Queen, then humiliate her by pouring a bucket of pig's blood on her after she receives the award. The bucket falls on Tommy - her escort and Prom King - knocking him unconscious. Carrie loses control and attacks everyone telepathically, including the teachers; she causes the gym to catch fire and then walks away as the gym and the prom-goers burn. Chris and Billy try to kill her with Billy's car; Carrie telepathically flips the car, killing them instead. She walks home, where her mother stabs her with a knife trying to kill her; Carrie telepathically assaults her with a drawerful of kitchen implements, killing her. When Carrie and her mother both die, the house implodes and is sucked into the ground (presumably to Hell). Sue lives, but is haunted by nightmares.

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)

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 didn't feel right and decided to go back to her look.

Margaret White: Witch. Got Satan's Power.
Carrie: It has nothing to do with Satan, Mama. It's me. Me. If I concentrate hard enough, I can move things.

More quotes from Carrie

Trivia: Director Brian de Palma originally wanted Sissy Spacek to play Chris Hargenson (eventually portrayed by Nancy Allen). But Spacek wanted to be the star, so she showed up for her audition in a dress her mother made for her in 7th grade. She looked so awkward and hopelessly out of touch with fashion that De Palma cast her as Carrie.

Question: Did Tommy die? If so, did his body get burned up?

Answer: He did die in the end when the mother sue was on the phone she mentions "losing tommy and the others" or something like that.

Answer: Most likely he did die. After Carrie set the gym on fire, she walked out and locked the gym doors behind her so that no one could escape, leaving Tommy to die too.
