Carrie

As everybody in the freakin’ world (except that one cable-less town just outside of the Antarctic) knows, Carrie (1976) is a modern horror classic about a bullied wallflower high school girl with blossoming telekinetic powers being set up for the world’s best Candid Camera prank, one that ends in screaming as opposed to laughing.

Carrie

Carrie, based on a story by Stephen King (whoever he is), has numerous horror icon moments, from the Pig Blood Prom, to the entire graduating class of 1976 getting their degrees (Fahrenheit), to the religious freak mom getting the point of what knives are really good for, and the iconic shock ending scene that’s been copied one million billion times by everyone – except me.

Here is the fans’ opening salvo…

TO: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Sony Pictures, Screen Gems, 20th Century Fox, and Misher Films:

This petition is for those avid Carrie fans who hope to see an Extended Director’s Cut of Carrie released on DVD and Blu-ray. It has come to the attention of fans that there were many scenes filmed, but later dropped from the theatrical cut – many of which were also, unfortunately, not included in the Deleted/Alternate scenes on the Blu-ray release.

Back in December 2012, there were a number of people who attended the first test screenings of the film and confirmed that the original cut was longer and a lot different from what we saw in theaters. Based on fan speculation, feedback from Test-Audiences, and certain confirmed details concerning the film – the deleted and/or extended scenes include…
