Yes, horror remakes are a dime a dozen these days when it comes to Hollywood, but if it’s one thing that Chloe Grace Moretz has been able to do so far is fit into some of the better ones out there. This time both she and Julianne Moore are starring in the remake of the iconic Stephen King classic, ‘Carrie‘.
The appearance of Julianne Moore as the ultra religious mother that helps to ruin Carrie’s life has a look of intensity that is fitting for the role. I can’t wait to see Moore’s version of the character. Chloe Grace Moretz has been absolutely amazing in every role she’s had so far, at least those she’s been able to show off her action chops and not just her ability to look like a badass. For those unfamiliar with Chloe’s work aside from the action filled ‘Kick-Ass’, she did some amazing work in ‘Let Me In’ and ‘Dark Shadows‘. I think both roles help to really cement what she’ll be able to pull off in this one.
For those who missed out on the original 70s film from either being too young or not obsessed with horror, this is one of the few true works by Stephen King whose movie actually came out to be absolutely amazing. Here’s the official description:
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.
Honestly the original film was fantastic and this one looks to be leveling up to be just as good (if not better!) Also it gave us the iconic scene of Carrie White covered in blood that’s quite similar to this particular still from the new film.
With the stand out cast, this remake of ‘Carrie’ has a chance to be one of the few remakes actually fully worth seeing on the big screen. As a horror fanatic, I’m used to having to watch quite a few painful movie experiences, but this one I have quite high hopes for.
