In the Book In the Movie
   In the book, Carrie's gym teacher is Ms. Desjardin. In the movie, she is Ms. Collins.
   The people at the prom are actually laughing at Carrie when the the blood is dumped on her; sort of a mass hysteria; one student even trips her before she runs out. It is only in Carrie's imagination that everyone is laughing at her when the blood is dumped on her at the prom. Only Norma Watson pretends to laugh at her.
   Carrie wipes out most of the town on her rampage after the school prank. The damage is limited to her school.
   Carrie's mother is large, fat and ugly with white hair and glasses. She is not ugly and has brownish-red hair.
   The high school is named Ewen Consolidated High School. It is Bates High School.
