In 1974 a would be famous author, Stephen King, wrote a book that would forever impact the horror genre. This book was called Carrie, a tragic tale about an abused telekinetic girl who lets out her rage when she is pushed too far at prom. Through the years this book has spawned two movie adaptations, a tv adaptation and two musicals, all telling the same tale just in a different way. Many people consider the 1976 De Palma Carrie as the supreme adaptation, while there are many fans of the other adaptations as well, but who’s Carrie White would win if they all showed up to each others prom? This match will focus on a contestant’s level of rage, death toll, creativity and most screwed up life on screen or stage. For this contest Angela Bettis’s Carrie will be sitting on the sidelines since she is kind of redundant. This contest will not focus on who was the best actress only whose powers would kick the most ass.
LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!!!!!!!
Contestant #1: Vintage Carrie
Played by: Sissy Spacek
Starred in: Carrie (1976)
Special Power: Pyrokinesis
In corner number 1 we have, Sissy… er I mean Carrie White. She’s young, she’s frumpy and her hobbies include sowin’, reading books about sowin’ and taking long showers (not with the other girls of course). This girl knows how to pack a punch. Don’t laugh at her or she might set you ablaze. When this girl gets a killin’ she does it without blinking an eye, it’s almost like she is sociopath or something. Carrie would like to thank her momma Margaret White because without her bible smacking and her delicious homemade tea and pies, Carrie would not be standing with us today.
Contestant #2: Modern Carrie
Played by: Chloe Grace Moretz
Starred in: Carrie (2013)

People of Chamberlain, Maine can find her walking the streets browsing all the finest stores that Maine has to offer. Carrie someday hopes that she’ll be able to fly to Costa Rica to explore it’s fine jungles, but for now she can just fly over dangerous live wires and do some parlor tricks with her mind.

Open your unsuspecting hearts and let Carrie in because this dreamer in disguise wants to give you a night we’ll never forget.
