First Teaser Trailer for the 2013 Carrie Remake Starring Chloe Moretz and Julianne Moore Is Here – Bloody Hell!

When I first heard about this project, it sounded like a terrible idea to me. Why mess with one of the most perfect Stephen King film adaptations–hell, one of the most perfect horror films, period*–ever made? To this day, the 1976 original holds up. Not only does it still hold up, it’s one of those movies that is just as powerful and deeply frightening with every re-watch (that’d be probably close to fifty times for me over the last three-plus decades) and I’ve only seen it on TV.  I’d love to see it on the big screen, and if I do, I can all but guarantee I will scream at  the top of my lungs in panic at the end, even though I am 100% sure exactly how, where, and when that hand will burst up through the stones covering the grave and grab Sue Stern’s wrist in her nightmare.

The more I heard, though, the less stupid it sounded, especially when I saw the two photos of Chloë Grace Moretz in the title role and Julianne Moore as Mrs. White (Carrie’s scary religious nutcase mother). Then I finally got to see this– one of the best teasers I’ve seen in years for a horror movie. Here it is in HD, if you haven’t seen it yet, and if you have, it’s worth another look!

I had read they were going to stay closer to the novel than the original, and so far so good, since in the novel Carrie ended up destroying the entire town, she was so enraged. Hundreds of dead and injured; most fire-related. Carrie also uses her powers to unscrew all the fire hydrants she can so there’s less water to put the fires out. Here’s the official PR to go with the teaser trailer:

The official teaser trailer for ‘Carrie’ (2013) starring Chloë Grace Moretz as Carrie in an adaptation of Stephen King’s original novel ‘Carrie’. Official description: A sheltered high school girl unleashes her newly developed telekinetic powers after she is pushed too far by her peers.

OK, that’s a huge fucking understatement, but fine. Now I see what all the buzz is about, so far I see no reason not to trust director Kimberly Peirce, and I’ll be following the coverage pretty closely and sharing it here! Here’s a link to the official URL,  WhatHappenedToCarrie.com. Plus, since the American Horror Story Asylum premiere, I’ve had the haunting Pino Donaggio score to the Brian De Palma original stuck in my head…

*no pun intended. Really.
