SPOILERS! 5 Alternate CARRIE Endings Filmed, Descriptions For 4 Of Them
Kimberly Peirce, the director of the new Carrie remake, filmed five alternate endings, and we have descriptions for four of them. Also, come see a new television spot, and some behind-the-scenes footage with Chloë Grace Moretz ("Kick-Ass 2").
A source for the website, veryaware.com, recently attended a test screening of Kimberly Peirce's Carrie remake. At the screening four endings were shown, and members of the audience were asked to vote for which one they liked the best. They were also informed that a fifth ending was shot, but it would only be used if test audiences did not care for the four being screened.
The first ending is very similar to the ending of the 1976 film but without the final twist: Sue Snell actually gets killed when Carrie pulls her into the ground. The second ending is an exact replica of the original film where Snell gets pulled into the ground by Carrie but wakes up in her bed to find it’s just a dream. The third ending is described as a “morning after voiceover” by Snell as we see the town coping with what happened. Finally, the fourth ending shows the town the morning after Carrie’s attack filled with news crews, reporters, and cops talking about the whole thing. What’s bizarre about this scene is that Carrie’s destruction of the city is being described as “a conspiracy.” Apparently the town is “trying to cover up what really happened.” Apparently the audience preferred the first two and “weren’t really into the other two at all.”
OTHER ALTERNATE SCENES
“They showed us multiple versions of the prom scene and some other scenes . . . the scene in the trailer where you see her using her powers for the first time in her bedroom (floating the books) had a couple of versions.”
It should also be noted, that the source raved about Julianne Moore's performance as Carrie's mother, Margaret White. The crucifixion scenes was highlighted as being better than Brian De Palma’s original 1976 version.
A reimagining of the classic horror tale about Carrie White (Chloë Grace Moretz), a shy girl outcast by her peers and sheltered by her deeply religious mother (Julianne Moore), who unleashes telekinetic terror on her small town after being pushed too far at her senior prom.
The quiet suburb of Chamberlain, Maine, is home to the deeply religious and conservative Margaret White (Moore) and her daughter, Carrie (Moretz). Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom Margaret has sheltered from society. Gym teacher Miss Desjardin (Judy Greer) tries in vain to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargenson (Portia Doubleday, Youth in Revolt), but only Chris’ best friend, Sue Snell (Gabriella Wilde, The Three Musketeers), regrets their actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross (newcomer Ansel Elgort), to take Carrie to prom. Pushed to the limit by her peers at the dance, Carrie unleashes telekinetic havoc. Brian De Palma’s 1976 film version of CARRIE earned Oscar nominations for stars Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie.
