Kimberly Peirce‘s Carrie Remake did not do too well at the box office so the horror film has been pushed along to Blu-ray release. The Blu-ray/DVD release date is scheduled for this upcoming January 14, 2014 and Digital HD on January 3, 2014. The alternate ending will only be available on the Blu-ray copy of the film so there is the incentive to check Carrie out on that.
