LUNA post: Bloody school kids – first Carrie teaser

My first film post for LUNA Magazine.

Sneaking in at just under a minute, the first teaser trailer for the Carrie re-adaptation, or remake,  doesn’t reveal much (hence teaser), giving us a floating shot of a city engulfed by flames (accompanied by suitably foreboding music) and finishing with a split-second shot of the gore-covered, anguished teen.

Disembodied voices offer opinions on why exactly Carrie went cuckoo. “There’s something no one seems to understand, she wasn’t just some monster, she was just a girl.”

Moretz, best known for her roles in Kick-Ass and the sage sister in 500 Days of Summer, plays the eponymous telekinetic high school girl, with Julianne Moore accompanying as her ultra-religious and abusive Christian mother.

The film, directed by Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don’t Cry) is based on Stephen King’s novel of the same name, and follows Carrie’s transformation from meek and bullied teen to vengeful bitch after being covered in pig blood in a cruel prank at her prom.

Moretz recently revealed the 2013 version is an more adaptation of the novel than a film remake, and that it will be “darker and much more psychological” than the original. But will it live up the 1976 horror classic directed by Brian De Palma (Scarface), and can Moretz top Sissy Spacek‘s haunting performance?

The Australian release date has been set for March 2013 so it’s going to be a long wait to find out..

Also, get around it on Twitter, using the #WhatHappenedToCarrie hashtag, or give Carrie a call on  1-207-404-2604 (legit – if you can work out the US numbering).
