Christopher Webster [Celluloid 10.16.12] horror

For more than 30 years, Brian De Palma has owned one of the best Stephen King adaptations ever with his 1976 version of Carrie. Both a trend setting horror movie and a product of revolutionary American cinema in the 70s, it is boundary pushing in many ways.

Now, director Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don't Cry) is making a bid with her own "re-imagining" of Carrie, which promises to be more faithful to King's novel and accessible to today's audiences. Kind of a worrisome turn of phrase if you ask me.

A reimagining of the classic horror tale about Carrie White (Chloe 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.

Based on the best-selling novel by Stephen King, Carrie is directed by Kimberly Peirce with a screenplay by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.

Carrie stars Chloe Moretz, Julianne Moore, Judy Greer, Alex Russell, Portia Doubleday, Ansel Elgort, and Gabriella Wilde.

Carrie opens in theatres on March 15th, 2013.
