The first teaser trailer of the new film version of Stephen King’s novel is out and shows the actress playing a chilling Carrie White in the horror classic.
Carrie White is a shy, sheltered, high school outcast who lives with her crazy mother in “that creepy house.” Unfortunately for her peers, White releases her telekinetic terror on her schoolmates after she is tormented at her high school prom.
Even though Moretz is not shown much in the teaser, she seems to embody the creepy lead character perfectly.
Kimberly Peirce, the director of the 2013 remake, has reimagined the horror by adding an eerie melody to the teaser as the camera slowly begins to show barren streets whose buildings and bushes are now engulfed in fire.
“This was always such a peaceful town,” a disembodied male voice says. Another chimes in, “I don’t want to use the word conspiracy, but that’s what it’s like.” And yet another adds: “I believe something supernatural happened here. It defies logic and explanation.”
“There’s something no one seems to understand,” a woman’s voice adds as the camera surveys the burning sidewalks. “She wasn’t some monster,” the female voice says, showing Carrie’s shawody figure. “She was just a girl.”
The camera then swoops to focus on the famous image of Carrie: Moretz in a blood-spattered prom dress. It echoes the iconic shot of Sissy Spacek in the 1976 movie directed by Brian De Palma.
Spacek was 26 years old when she was playing the troubled teen with telekinesis, while Moretz is only 15 years old and closer to the age of the character.
Julianne Moore will also be starring in the new adaptation, which is set to hit theaters on March 15.
