But what they didn't know was that Carrie possessed an extraordinary power: telekinesis, which is the supposed ability to move or cause changes in objects simply by force of the mind. And so it came to a head at Prom Night, when the dirtiest trick ever was pulled on her.
She and her date, Tommy Ross, ended up being Prom King and Queen. When they went up to the stage, Carrie's archenemy, Christine Hargenson, dumped a bucket of blood on them. The party came to a screeching halt, as she believed everyone was laughing at her, until finally, she grew so angry, that she unleashed the fury of her powers upon the school. After which she unleashed them on the entire town and proceeded to kill her mother. But her mother fatally stabbed her, but afterwards Carrie killed her, and lived surprisingly long after being wounded, but eventually bled to death.
Jesus never fails.
