The Carrie viral website has shared a new animated gif that alleges that the White family has a history of psychic ability.

Did Margaret White’s grandmother, Sadie Cochran, possess TK powers like Carrie? The White Family Genealogy says yes, which makes me wonder if this factors into the modern telling’s story arc…

Carrie 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.

Alex Russell, Ansel Elgort, Gabriella Wilde, Judy Greer, and Portia Doubleday also star.

Brian De Palma’s 1976 film version of Carrie earned Oscar nominations for stars Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie.

Kimberly Peirce’s prom night comes early this year – on October 18 to be exact.

    Should have just left it with the great-grandmother and not the father.

    They have to leave the father in. According to the 1st movie it was the father that was passing this gene on to his children.

    I have a question is this a shot by shot remake or like a fresh remake like evil dead was. Because the trailer felt like a shot by shot just updated. And I dont’ need a shot by shot remake.

      It is a new adaptation of the novel rather than a remake of the De Palma film.

    This is all from the source material. In the book it’s mentioned that Margaret’s grandmother had TK and there is also mention that men are “carriers”, alluding to Carrie’s father having the “TK gene”. And might I suggest to flesheater24; You should read the book! It’s short and engrossing and you’ll see how ANY movie called “Carrie” is gonna look pretty similar…
