What makes her different, will make her deadly…

A unique new TV Spot has been released for Carrie, in theaters October 18. The buzz here in Chicago is actually pretty strong, expect a big opening for this horror redo.

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.

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

    i’m kind of looking forward to this movie now. it won’t be better than the original (one of my all time faves) but it looks like fun and i hope in this version Carrie destroys the entire town.

    • WalkWithMeInDarkness

      That’s what I’ve been saying. I’m really hoping they get creative with the telekinesis. It’s a power I feel has endless possibilities and I’d love to see Carrie strike down her tormentors in some inventive ways. The only thing I thought “The Rage: Carrie 2″ had going for it was some of the deaths at the end, like the girl’s glasses exploding in her eyes and that one guy getting his dick shot off with a spear gun.

    I’m so confused… I dislike her crazy/angry scream, BUT, the expression of anger in the final scene of this TV Spot, when she crashes the car, it’s great! I think I will watch it, I’m a little curious about it.

  • RubenVeritas

    Am I the only one who is annoyed that she has her mouth open literally every time she uses the telekinesis. She looks so dumb, but I am curious to watch aside form the horrible CGI.

    • Cezseldher

      Oh, there it is: The CGI. It’s not like I don’t understand that, well, yeah, it’s somehow helpful in some cases, but, I usually think it takes away so much strenght to the film itself. What I have been watching from trailers and TV Spots, about this movie in particular, are not making me go like “WOW”.

      And, maybe I’m not paying too much attention to the mouth open issue, but I’m not very happy to see her going “crazy” instead of very creepy, like Sissy. There was something scary about how she looked when she was destroying everything at the prom, that I can’t get over. Here, Chloë is not doing it for me. BUT, I will give it the benefit of the doubt and actually watch the movie. Who knows? Maybe is not as “bleh”, as I think it’s going to be.

      • djblack1313

        i agree w/ you both, Cezseldher and Ruben. i’m still kinda looking forward-ish to this but yeah, nothing beats Sissy once the blood was poured on her…her face was terrifying.

      • RubenVeritas

        Yes Chloe’s reaction looks to rehearsed as for Sissy’s her was in complete shock and sheer terror. Lets not forget the intensity in those eyes as she was possessed and overpowered by the telekinesis.This Carrie seems to be in control where as in the original the telekinesis was in control.

    • GothicGuido

      I’m very not down with this movie lol. I’v started arguments on this site (we get into a beauty debate lol) about this movie because of Chloe.

      She is TERRIBLE! for this role. Who know’s she could wow me and make me eat my words but for now she just is not believable. Some people say sissy was hot in her day (Ill never know I’m kinda young) but lets be realistic here. Even if she was attractive she pulls off the creepy girl in way Chloe can simply not.

      Chloe is in movies because she has a unique look (and she’s an oversexualized child but that’s a whole other debate lol). She has this Angelina Jolie exotic big lip think going for her when she was like 10 or something (whenever kick ass came out). Anyone who thinks she has made it to where she is today on acting alone is delusional. With that said shes an attractive kid and its no way believable that every guy at her school is gonna think shes not worth their time. This whole cutsey “Oooo I’m so confoosed and fwustwated look” is just lame as hell.

      It stinks of Hollywood remake. Were gonna use bigger effects! were gonna get the IT girl to play the lead and its going to appeal to a wider audience (PG-13)

      No thank you… Sorry for the rant lol.

      • RubenVeritas

        I agree her acting does not look that great in the trailer and the filmi actually rated R. I don’t mind her as an actress but she is not right for this role at all.

      • Cezseldher

        “Even if she was attractive she pulls off the creepy girl in way Chloe can simply not.” There it is: She looked CREEPY! That was my favorite thing about her, that she looked creepy. I mean, I wanted to be scared of Carrie, as much as I wanted to feel sad for her. Sissy played, in my opinion, both sides very well.

        I still think I’m going to give a chance to this one and watch it, but, I don’t think it’s going to make me love it.

  • Droolbear

    What is with the black blood? Or is it even blood? Perhaps they decided to drop motor oil on her to change things up?

    • djblack1313

      Droolbear, in trailers/tv spots the MPAA makes them change blood coloring from red to chocolate/black. in the movie itself it will be the correct red color.

  • Evan3

    Meh, it looks like they changed nothing from the De Palma film, a film that still holds up perfectly well. I don’t need mindless CGI violence. Meh and bleh to this.

  • bluegrasslass

    She’s supposed to be doused with a BUCKET of BLOOD, not a teacup of mud! Looks absolutelyu awful.

    • Michael

      The blood is red. This is a TV spot and just like when the Shining advertises they had to turn the blood black for the TV.

  • Michael

    None of you can judge or say the original was better before you’ve seen the movie. I have huge expectations for this one.

    • Evan3

      @Michael

      We most certainly can judge this film before seeing it. Isn’t that the point of a trailer? Would you say I couldn’t say a movie looks good or better than expected after I saw the trailer? Of course not. So why isn’t the opposite true? The trailer for Evil Dead reboot made me want to see that. This trailer makes me want to shake my head in exasperation at pointless remakes. Both reactions are legitimate.

  • HorrorJ

    Not sure what I think about this… Carrie for some reason is my favorite King book. I like the idea of expanding on some of the stuff in the novel, but I’ll have to wait and see how this turns out. I’m not really digging some of the CGI but I’m going to have to get over that.
