Found this on the internet:Hey watching Carrie on amc and wondering why king chose pigs blood? any answer
Never really thought about why pork was forbidden in Islam, interesting.Found this on the internet:
"Why does it have to be pig's blood?
Pig is a symbol of sloth and greed. Muslims see pigs as unclean, haram creatures (haram means forbidden by Allah). So, pig symbolizes dirtiness and disgust."
I dunno - I think they were just sticking to the original book in which two pigs are killed. You'd have to ask Stephen King why he chose to include this in his book.
