The Sony Screen Gems remake of Carrie was originally set to hit theaters in March before it got pushed to its upcoming release date on October 18th. Now we know that the extra time allowed them to undergo some additional photography. The good kind, according to Chloe Grace Moretz.

She told Fangoria, “We actually prolonged the film, to be honest. We did some reshoots and added three extra scenes with Julianne and I to make the movie even deeper and darker. We prolonged a couple of scenes that needed to have an extra moment or an extra beat just to make it even deeper. It wasn’t about cutting anything out or trying to edit around things; it was about adding more to make the movie scarier and more intense.

The film is “a reimagining of the classic horror tale about Carrie White (Chloë Grace Moretz), a shy girl outcast by her peers and sheltered by her deeply religious mother (Julianne Moore), who unleashes telekinetic terror on her small town after being pushed too far at her senior prom. Brian De Palma’s 1976 film version of Carrie earned Oscar nominations for stars Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie.

    I’m glad to see that this was delayed only because they wanted to make sure it would be the best it could be, I’m wicked exited for this movie, not going to lie. bring on the bloody prom night! :D

    this looks pretty bad (the movie, not the fact they did reshoots). nothing will ever beat the original and no one can beat Piper Laurie’s performance. that being said i DO like Julianne Moore (and Judy Greer who’s playing the gym teacher) so i will give this a shot.

    With no PA5 coming out this October, that should open the door for Carrie to rule Halloween! Can’t wait to see Chloe Grace Moretz in this!

    Yeah, I’m going to watch it, but the trailers really haven’t done anything for me at all. They’ve been so bland and uninteresting, but I still give it a watch in theaters, because I am anxious to see how this turns out.
