Remakes. Some are decent, some are great, some are downright bad. Everything under the sun is being remade these days, and it seems like that trend isn’t going away anytime soon, so I guess we can all just hope for the best. Stephen King’s debut novel CARRIE was first adapted to the screen by Brian De Palma in 1976, and has had a couple of really bad sequels/sub-par TV remakes since then.

Coming this October, MGM/Screen Gems will release their brand new CARRIE remake, directed by Kimberly Pierce and starring Chloe Grace Moretz (KICKASS, LET ME IN) and Julianne Moore (CHILDREN OF MEN, HANNIBAL). Judging from the trailer that hit the internet today, it looks pretty promising. What do you Fright Fiends think?

“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. “

CARRIE comes out on October 18th via MGM.

    Every remake should have a purpose for existing, other than being a remake. Though it was subpar, the TV version re-instituted the framing device from the novel (and added an interracial romance it did nothing with). So at least it had a purpose, albeit a flawed one.

    The brief scenes that focus on bullying in this trailer would give the film a modern take, and therefore give it reason to exist. That would be an exciting take, given the current climes in America. But everything that surrounds those scenes makes me believe that the new CARRIE will be a lot of stuff De Palma already covered. And likely did better.
