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.
Tommy Ross: Yeah?
Tommy Ross: Why what?
Carrie: Why am I here?
Tommy Ross: Because it's the prom.
Carrie: Why am I here with you?
Tommy Ross: Because I asked you.
Carrie: Why'd you ask me?
Tommy Ross: Because I wanted to.
Carrie: Why'd you want to?
Tommy Ross: Because you liked my poem. Only I didn't write it. Somebody else did.
