Like a wise man (who invented the keytar tie) once said “I feel like I’m taking crazy pills here!” See remakes are, by default, not supposed to be good. If they were, we’d have a serious lack of source material for our poor excuses at humour around here. But just like Fede Alvarez’s Evil Dead, Kimberley “Boys Don’t Cry” Pierce’s reimagining of Stephen King’s classic horror story, famously brought to life by Brian De Palma back in 1976, is actually looking pretty good.
Don’t believe me, then check out this first full trailer which shows Julianne Moore trying to win the Creepy Mom of the Year award, while Chloe Moretz gets treated like Harry Potter and makes with the telekinesis in retaliation.
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. Based on the best-selling novel by Stephen King, “Carrie” is directed by Kimberly Peirce with a screenplay by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
