Here's The Full-Length Trailer For CARRIE!

Nordling here.

I love the idea of a remake of CARRIE, especially from a director like Kimberly Peirce (BOYS DON'T CRY).  Brian DePalma's film is undoubtedly a classic and always will be, but I look at remakes these days like song covers - I'm really curious of how different directors approach the material.

If the trailer is any indication, however, it looks like Peirce is making CARRIE into a CGI fest, with all the same horror beats.  This is a trailer after all, and it's intended to get butts in seats, but I hope Peirce injects her own viewpoint and ideas into Stephen King's story.  BOYS DON'T CRY is a terrific movie and I think horror needs more women filmmakers to get involved.  If you've never seen the original or read the book, however, this trailer practically shows the whole movie.  But I dig the casting of Chloe Moretz and Julianne Moore and hope this becomes something more than the trailer indicates.  Here it is, courtesy of Yahoo!:

CARRIE opens this October.  Hope it desn't get lost in the Halloween horror movie shuffle.

Nordling, out.
