Carrie (2013) Official Trailer

Posted: April 5, 2013 by Jenny Dreadful in Film, News

The first official trailer for the newest adaptation of Stephen King’s CARRIE just came out yesterday. Thoughts?

All remake angst aside, I’m not feeling so great about this one. I love love love Chloe Moretz (Let Me In, Kick-Ass), but this might be some serious miscasting. I’m also a little turned off by what I can see of the effects. However, I hope for the best. It’s encouraging to see more mainstream horror films directed by women. Maybe Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don’t Cry) can give this overused source material new life with a feminine point of view. Looking at current events, there’s no doubt that the issues raised in King’s 1974 novel are relevant as ever.
