The ‘Carrie’ Blu-ray Will Have A New Ending (Hopefully Better Than The Theatrical One)


Sony Pictures and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment will release Boys Don’t Cry director Kimberly Peirce‘s remake of Carrie on DVD and Blu-ray on January 14th (it’s avail on iTunes starting January 3rd).

Interestingly enough, the Blu-ray includes an alternate ending seemingly attached to the film itself. While I was mixed-positive on the film, the ending bit with the tombstone was pretty bad. Hopefully whatever they’ve got in store for this new finale tops it (it would be mathematically impossible not to).

Chloë Grace Moretz, Julianne Moore, Judy Greer, Alex Russell, Ansel Elgort, Gabriella Wilde and Portia Doubleday all star. Check out the features list below.

    i was going to see this but then i kept hearing how bad it was (i worship the original film). one thing i kept hearing/reading again and again is that the ending especially sucked, so this new ending deal sounds good. i’m assuming it will include the town’s decimation(?) which was filmed but not a part of the theatrical release. i’ll definitely watch this on dvd.

      It’s not bad, it’s just nothing you haven’t seen before. It is basically the same movie as the original with a few modern tweaks here and there. The ending is kind of lame, there’s not a shit ton of destruction and death like I was hoping there would be and the final shot is truly pathetic, whether compared to the original’s final scare or not. Something I will praise, though, is the final confrontation between Carrie and Chris, it’s stronger in this film than it was in the original.

        WalkWithMe, i’m very much looking forward to the Carrie/Chris confrontation! i hear it’s very good.

    I was hoping for the Director’s Cut. The heads of production tore this movie apart.

    REALLY wish I didn’t have to sign in each and every time I wanted to leave a comment. How is this not fixed yet? Have you guys not put it together that your comment stats PLUMMETED when it initially got fucked up?

    • EvanDickson

      @Baphomitt noted.

      What was your original comment going to be?

      • Baphomitt

        Something about hoping the new ending would have a new movie in front of it 😛

        • HorrorFancy

          Lol, agreed. I was hoping for a Carrie meets Boys Don’t Cry, sadly IMO not the case.

    • djblack1313

      Baphomitt, i agree. i have to re-sign in any time i close my browser and every time i reboot/turn on my computer. it IS a bit annoying. and i’m glad i’m not the only one who’s noticed that comment stats (on most, not all) are way down since this new site design came about.

        @Djblack1313 I’ll address with tech – thanks for the input.


      baphomitt, go to reviews and then sign in from there. that usually brings up a white sign-in menu for me that I can mark the damn box to keep me signed in… but I hear ya loud and clear

      • Baphomitt

        Awesome. Thank you!

    While I haven’t seen the reboot, it sounds like they kept the ending from the original film. It wasn’t a good ending then and I’m sure it’s the same now. Curious to see this remake. I’ve heard a lot of good things about it.

  • Primeus

    I really wanted to see this film but decided against wasting the money after the terrible reviews hit.

    The original movie is a classic, and is beyond epic. I mean Spacek got nominated for an Oscar for her performance, and was the first time someone from a horror movie was nominated for best actor/actress.

    Carrie is right up there with Halloween, Rosemary’s Baby, and The Shining.

    So trying to remake it was going to be incredibly difficult.
