New Terror-Filled Carrie Trailer Released
The second trailer has been released for the upcoming Carrie remake, based off of Stephen King’s classic novel. Both Chloë Grace Moretz as Carrie and Julianne Moore as the cruel, controlling mother, really shine and give us a taste of what we can expect from the film. Moore in particular gives the trailer an utterly discomforting tone that oddly makes you yearn for more. While I’m not sure I buy someone as gorgeous as Moretz being that heavily ridiculed and ostracized, I can suspend a certain amount of disbelief due to the caliber of acting that is promised to go along with it. I have yet to see anything less than a stellar performance from Moretz and I expect no less of her in Carrie.
Most fans of the original may not have been initially all that excited for another rehashing of a horror gem, but the trailer gives the viewer intentions of staying true to the story with the gritty transition Carrie goes through from timid outcast to a fierce and vengeful woman among a disturbing atmosphere. Carrie is fittingly directed by a female filmmaker, Kimberly Peirce, and is set to be released in theaters October 18.
