Sue Snell...Way to go!

Post  Polidano on Thu Oct 27, 2016 2:34 pm

Did Sue Snell do the right thing by having Tommy ask Carrie to the dance, or did she just make matters worse? Is this whole massacre at the end Sue Snell's fault?

While Sue Snell had good intentions when she requested her boyfriend to ask Carrie to the dance, she ultimately made matters worse for the young girl. By doing this generous act, Sue brought Carrie into the limelight and provided Chris Hargensen a golden opportunity to humiliate her in front of the majority of the school. Even though one can easily argue that Sue had some contribution to the massacre that happened as a result of Carrie's humiliation, it is the actions and decisions of other characters within the film that made this horrific tragedy unavoidable. Specifically, the actions and decisions of Chris, Billy, Norma, and Miss Collins. Originating from Chris, the scheme to humiliate Carrie came from her due to the fact that she was forced to do physical activities with her fellow classmates for bullying the peculiar girl and being refused permission to go to the prom. Had she decided to remain calm and accept her punishment gracefully, Chris would have been able to go to the dance without possibly baring a grudge against Carrie. Continuing on, Billy also played a huge role in helping with his girlfriend's scheme. By providing assistance to attain the pig blood, he gives Chris the chance to continue her plan. Without any muscle to help her, Chris would have probably gave up on her revenge. Chris also received assistance from her classmate named Norma. By rigging the voting system for king and queen of the prom, Norma manages to help position Carrie into the perfect spot for the pig blood to be splattered on her. In which it would not have been possible if she decided not to help with Chris's plan. Finally, Miss Collins also assisted Chris with carrying out her plan. However, not intentionally. Being suspicious of only Sue and and her boyfriend, she kicks Sue out of the prom once she appears due to her thinking that she was planning on embarrassing Carrie in some way. Instead, Sue actually discovered that Chris and Billy are hidden inside the stage and have a bucket of blood ready to be spilled on Carrie. In which she attempted to desperately warn the teacher, but she refused to listen. Had Miss Collins listened to Sue instead of simply ignoring her, the tragedy could have been avoided at the last second. Due to this, I believe that the massacre at the end is not Sue's fault alone. It is the actions of various characters within the film that made what should have been a turning point in Carrie's life to become a horrific nightmare.

Did Sue do the Right thing?

Post  dannyd76 on Fri Oct 28, 2016 5:59 pm

In my opinion sue did the right thing by getting Tommy to ask Carrie to the prom; the massacre was not Sue's fault. Sue made Tommy ask Carrie to the prom because Sue wanted to make it up to Carrie for the the change room incident and wanted to make Carrie happy. The massacre was not Sue's fault because she had no clue about the plan Chris had made to humiliate Carrie at the prom. The public embarrassment is what made Carrie get angry and start a killing spree. Sue was trying to be nice and she made a huge sacrifice by giving up her prom ticket and her prom date to make Carrie happy for once. The fact that a prank was planned is very unfortunate and caused a lot of bad to happen, that isn't Sue's fault. This was kind of right idea bad timing situation and Sue was caught in the middle. She absolutely did the right thing and tried to help another person, how can she be blamed for what else happened? Sue did the right thing and the massacre is not her fault.

In my opinion I think that Sue Snell did not do the right thing. Although it was a kind gesture from her it just made things worse. If Carrie has declined the offer of going to prom with Tommy and stayed home with her mom no violence would occur. Since she chose to go prom it created an opportunity for the others to plan something bad to humiliate Carrie. In the end it wasn't Sue Snells fault that a massacre occurred because she tried to stop it but she got kicked out, and she genuinely didn't know something bad was gonna happen.

In the beginning Sue Snell was a part of the crowd of girls who made fun of Carrie for being peculiar, however her morals led her to try to make it up to Carrie. Genuinely she wanted to set things right and help Carrie by making her own prom date Tommy ask her to the prom. Her intentions were good, but this situation gave Chris the perfect opportunity to continue to humiliate Carrie. The massacre was not Sue's fault because if Chris had not set up the pigs blood to fall on Carrie as she won prom queen the whole murder would not have surpassed. She did not mean to make matters worse because before prom Carries mustered up the courage to stand up to her abusive mother and tell her that she wanted to be like other kids and go to the prom. The situation could've been handled better however she still did something right for herself. Sue is a good girl who even attended the prom secretly just to see that Carrie was having a good time and she sincerely smiled as they placed the crown over her head. As she looked up she saw the bucket of blood and as she followed it down with her eyes she soon discovered Chris at the end of it. Knowing Chris' malicious intentions Sue tried to stop her and the gym teacher tried to through her out thinking it's a prank. For the time being it worked out in Sue's favour as she was the only one who didn't get hurt in the burning building, but in the end was tortured with nightmares and living with the fact that all her friends had died except her. She did her best to help Carries and would've succeeded if Chris did not plot her revenge which caused Carries to use her powers for evil toward the teachers and students. Sue was only trying to help, but can't help but feel like the whole thing was her fault because she let Carrie attend the prom.

I think that Sue did the right thing. By her getting Tommy to ask Carrie to the dance she helped carry see that she wasn't all that different from everyone else although she had powers. I think that at the end the whole situation was not Sue's fault, I think that it was just everyone who was at the prom who was laughing at her after what happened that they were the ones who aggravated her not to completely and Carrie just got to overwhelmed and then the stuff happened.

Sue Snell

I think the gesture of getting Tommy Ross to go with Carrie to prom was nice. But Sue failed to realize the ramifications it would have on the entire school body. She thought that her actions she fix everything, but really it was a band-aid solution that later caused the death of many students in the school. Carrie did deserve something nice to happen to her, but maybe changing what others thought of her would help her more that throwing her right into the fire and letting her go unprepared to prom. In the end you could see that the action caused more harm than good and left Sue with a guilty conscience even though she didn't do anything wrong. Her efforts were good but the outcome didn't reflect the intended goals.

I feel that this massacre is indeed not Sue's fault, but it did leave a good opportunity for Carrie to be humiliated by Chris and Billy without Sue's realization. Sue is a very generous girl and knows when things get too out of hand (unlike Chris) and making her boyfriend go to the prom with Carrie was a very nice suggestion and it was brave of her boyfriend to actually go along with it and make Carrie feel special. Sadly, Chris took this chance to embarrass Carrie by dumping pig's blood on her with the help of Billy and the indirect help of the gym teacher. Sue was kept out of the prom since the gym teacher thought she would do something to hurt Carrie, and if only the teacher had listened to the girl when figuring out that Chris and Billy were about to do something devious, the massacre would have been avoided and Sue's plan would have very well worked out. If only Chris had learned that bullying and taunting Carrie will not help her situation and will only make things worse, she wouldn't have been killed alongside her boyfriend and every other member of their school. None of this is Sue's fault as she only ever had good intentions from the beginning and did not make any plans that would negatively affect Carrie.

I think Sue Snell just tried to do the good thing because she felt bad for Carrie and what happened to her. Unfortunately it turned for the worse and didn't end how Sue expected it t happen. I think in sues heart she was trying to do the right but it didn't work out and maybe if didn't do it all the terror wouldn't have happened. Although we did see how happy it made Carrie that night before she killed everyone. In the end the only person to blame is Chris and her boyfriend because they did the real damage.

In my opinion Sue Snell did the right thing by getting Tommy to ask Carrie to the prom. Even though she was associated with the girls that made fun of Carrie, she was trying to be the stronger person and wanted to make Carrie happy. The massacre at the end was not Sue's fault. Sue wanted Carrie to feel like she was worth something and did not intend for that to happen. Sue wanted Carrie to have fun and in the end it was the opposite of what Sue wanted. Carrie lost it and eventually killed everyone, even the people that didn't make fun of her.

Sue Snell had the right intentions in making her boyfriend take Carrie to the prom; she simply wanted to make up for treating her so poorly. She had no knowledge of the prank that was going to be pulled, so none of her actions were taken with the purpose of making things worse, they simply worked out that way. By Sue's boyfriend taking Carrie to the prom, it made her eligible for receiving the prom queen award which put her up on the stage and in the perfect position for the pig's blood to fall. Though none of this was Sue's fault, her good intentions accidentally set Carrie up to be victimized yet again. I don't believe Sue is at fault for the massacre in any way; she couldn't have foreseen what was going to happen and had no role in the prank that ultimately set Carrie up. She simply wanted Carrie to have a good time, but unfortunately, her help only inadvertently ended up setting the groundwork for the horrible prank to take effect.

Sue Snell is it her fault?

Post  marlonG99 on Wed Nov 09, 2016 11:56 pm

I believe that Sue did the right thing by letting her brother ask Carrie to go to the dance because she felt sympathy towards Carrie and wanted to make her life a little less stressful. The massacre at the end wasn't Sue's fault due to her not knowing what would happen and only showing up at the end of Carrie's coronation of her being prom queen. Sue had the right intentions but the outcomes of this decision wasn't her doing, more of Carrie because she finally blew her rage upon the whole student body which eventually caused Sue herself to receive trauma from this experience.

There are a lot of different was to look at it but in the end no matter what got her there if Carrie ended up at the prom and the people still poured pig blood on Carrie then there would have been a predicament in the end anyways. Sue was only trying to do the right thing but they messed up by bringing her to the prom. If Carrie stayed home nobody would have died and thats all there is to it.

I believe that Sue did indeed do the right thing in having her boyfriend ask Carrie to the dance and that it truly was a genuine gesture of pity that she thought was the right thing to do. In my opinion, it didn't matter how Carrie got to the prom, she still would have had blood poured over her regardless. I wouldn't blame Sue for any of the events that happened that night since she had no idea of the plan going down. Even if Carrie went to prom by herself, the votes would've been rigged and the massacre would've gone down either way.
