** While the 2013 version is still R-rated, the opening shower sequence is significantly toned down in comparison to its 1976 counterpart, especially in terms of nudity. This is justified by the fact that Creator/ChloeMoretz was barely fifteen at the time; social services and law enforcement [[PaedoHunt would have had a field day]] if Kimberly Peirce decided to film her the same way that Creator/BrianDePalma... ''[[MaleGaze filmed]]'' the [[DawsonCasting twenty-six-year-old]] Sissy Spacek. The added violence and bloodshed during Carrie's rampage almost feels like a way to make up for it.

* WritersCan'tDoMath: In the novel we are told that Carrie is 16 years old, and an excerpt from Sue's book says Carrie was 17. But Carrie was born in September 1963 and the book takes place in May 1979, which would actually make Carrie 15, her 16th birthday still four months away.

* EasilyForgiven: In the 2002 remake, Sue forgives Carrie for [[spoiler: the prom that pretty much killed a lot of people at the school]] and says it wasn't her fault. Justified, since for more of that sequence [[spoiler: Carrie seems to be walking around in a dream state, and before her powers are activated she seems to have a seizure from the stress of being coated in pig's blood.]]

If it was an act of contrition, to give Carrie the perfect prom night that Sue wanted, it was also an ethical dilemma if Carrie had liked Tom. In at least one version they do share a kiss, and afterwards what would happen between the three of them? ** Likewise, Chris pulling the pig's blood prank on Carrie. Even without knowing the whole psychic powers, she would have been fingered as the most likely culprit given her previous behavior towards Carrie and being kicked out f the prom.

* {{Foil}}: Sue and Chris. Both initially bullied Carrie, but their reactions to the shower incident and its aftermath are opposite: Sue feels guilty, stops bullying Carrie, and tries to make amends with the help of her boyfriend, while Chris is unrepentant, blames Carrie for the withdrawal of her prom priveleges, and plots a cruel revenge with the help of her boyfriend. As a result of the shower incident, Sue sacrifices her night at the prom voluntarily, while Chris has it revoked.

** And in the novel, an interview with one of the survivors of the whole thing reveals that it was one of those situations where it was either laugh, cry or go crazy. Some people in RealLife tend to laugh in awkward situations. Combine contagious laughter and mob psychology and you get one horrible situation all around.

** One could also apply this to Miss Collins, who could possibly have prevented everything if she had taken ten seconds to ''listen'' to Sue before throwing her out of the prom. Then again, Sue's aforementioned participation in the shower incident is probably what led Miss Collins to not hear her out. Sue's sudden [[TookALevelInKindness compassion for Carrie]] is also a very recent change of heart that causes Miss Collins understandable suspicion; even the truth about her good intentions seems too good to be true and is ambiguous even to the viewer until the crowning sequence.
