The human head is not perfectly round.  Director Kimberly Peirce knows this after a number of tests to see how fake blood reacts when dumped on someone’s head.  In fact, the shape creates a kind of umbrella effect when the blood hits it spot on, and that’s no good.  We need to see just enough blood on the girl’s face so that it’s mortifying, but not so much that she can’t see.  The first test was a perfect dump, but just a few millimeters off so that it ended up spilling behind her.  After two more tests with the stand in, Peirce thinks they’re ready for the real thing.  Chloe Grace Moretz is called to stage and her pretty dress is destined to be ruined.  You see, it’s prom night and Carrie White is about to be very, very angry.
