Carrie

Question: When Carrie begins using her power to get revenge on everybody, a quick shot shows Sue on her phone. Who was she calling? The screams of the students made it impossible to hear.

New this month Answer: After seeing Carrie get soaked in blood and Tommy get killed by being hit with the bucket, Sue leaves the building. Sue returns while talking on the phone just in time to see Heather crash into the gym window due to Carrie's shock-wave. As Sue rushes away, still on the phone, we hear her say, "There's been an explosion!" Sue was most likely calling the police to tell them about the prank that Chris and Billy pulled, so she could get some help for Carrie. She then gave them more information upon witnessing Carrie's rage.

Question: What phone does Sue have? I've been look all over Google for even some type of hint of what kind of phone it is but I have had no such luck.

Chosen answer: I believe it's the Sony Xperia Tipo.

Question: How did they shoot that scene at the end of the film when Carrie's mother apparently rises into the air in a crucifix-like position?

Answer: Most likely wires that were digitally removed in post-production.

Question: What does the grave cracking mean?

Chosen answer: It is an implication that Carrie White is not really dead.

Answer: It's most likely just a metaphor for the terrible memories that those who survived the prom massacre must have in their minds forever. The memory of Carrie White haunts them.

Question: I don't understand the ending of the movie when Sue is screaming in her mother's arms and there is a cross on her wall - is she supposed to become a Jesus freak like Carrie's mom, or is her baby gonna have powers like Carrie?

Chosen answer: Sue just woke up from a terrifying nightmare in which Carrie's arm reaches out of her grave and grabs Sue. A lot of hospitals have crosses in the rooms. It's been suggested that Sue might have miscarried and lost her baby.

Continuity mistake: The stain from Carrie's bloody hand on the PE teacher's skirt switches from a smudge in the shower room scene to a full hand-print stain in the principal's office. The stain is also higher on the skirt from where Carrie originally grabbed it.
