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.

More trivia for Carrie

Answer: A combination of factors is at play here. Carrie's mother, Margaret, is mentally unstable. She is a staunch fundamentalist Christian. Her daughter, Carrie, is a product of forced intercourse by her drunken husband which her mother admits to having enjoyed, regardless of its sinful nature. Carrie exhibits telekinetic powers, which Margaret labels witchcraft. Carrie goes to the prom against her mother's wishes, which Margaret considers sinful. Margaret ultimately sees her daughter as an evil spawn, imbued with Satanic powers, who is also beginning to assert her independence and defy Margaret's Christian principles. It was probably part of Margaret's delusion that killing her daughter in the midst of prayer (they are reciting "The Lord's Prayer" when Margaret stabs Carrie in the back and continues to attack her) might facilitate her possibility for redemption.
