Carrie Trailer


Carrie White is a plain and very sheltered girl raised alone by her extremely strict Christian mother who frequently punishes her. At school she is habitually bullied, something that gets ten times worse after a both humiliating and terrifying experience in the girls' locker room which causes her mother to inflict yet more punishment on her. Through her tumultuous life, she discovers that she has the power to move objects with her mind, something that causes much distress to her mother. The only people to truly show any compassion is her gym teacher Miss Desjardin and one of the popular girls, Sue Snell, who encourages her handsome boyfriend Tommy Ross to take her to the school prom. Carrie accepts, believing that she has been accepted for the first time in her life, only to face the biggest and most destructive humiliation of her life. 

The re-make to the Oscar nominated 1976 horror based on the book by acclaimed author Stephen King is due to hit screens this year in the first major rendition since the Brian De Palma flick's release. 2013's 'Carrie' has been directed by Kimberly Peirce ('Boys Don't Cry', 'Stop-Loss') with a screenplay by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa ('Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa') and it is set for release in UK cinemas everywhere from November 29th 2013.

Carrie Remake Teaser Trailer: Will Fans Of The Original Be Converted?


Chloe Moretz Julianne Moore Brian De Palma Kimberly Peirce Sissy Spacek

A teaser trailer for the Carrie remake was unveiled at New York’s Comic Con last weekend and has now made its way online. Starring Chloe Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore, the re-visioning of the 1976 Brian De Palma classic will, of course, have horror fanatics cowering behind the sofa in fear, peering gingerly through the fingers that fearfully cover their eyes. This won’t be because they are particularly scared of whatever is happening on screen, though but because they are petrified of what director Kimberly Peirce may have done to their beloved Carrie.

The teaser trailer itself isn’t exactly very… teasing. As the camera pans over an American town that’s been pretty much entirely set on fire, it eventually zooms in on Chloe Grace Moretz, stood in the middle of the street, surrounded by flames and covered in blood, recalling the classic Carrie scene. Except, in the classic image of Carrie (played by Sissy Spacek), covered in blood, she wasn’t standing in the middle of the street. She was at her school prom. But hey, why let a massive detail like that upset you? Perhaps this scene is just from her walk home from the prom. (Cue thousands of horror purists reaching for their ventilators).

Over the action, a montage of voices spout various suspense-inducing phrases, such as “she wasn’t some monster — she was just a girl” and “her mother was a fanatic, I don’t know how she lived with her.” We don’t get much more than that from this first glimpse of the film; the movie’s producers will have to try a lot harder than this if they want to coax any fans of the original out from behind the sofa.
