Too Much Spoiler In New Carrie Trailer? Horror Nerds: Discuss.

A note to the makers of the Carrie remake: not everyone has seen the original, you know. You may have wanted to keep a little bit of the plotline as a surprise?

Starring Chloe Grace Moretz in the title role of the socially awkward, telekinetically (ahem) ‘blessed’ teen who learns about puberty the hard way, this remake of the classic 1976 Brian De Palma horror is nonetheless looking pretty enticing. Even if we’ve just been shown a two and a half minute synopsis of what seems to be pretty much the entire plot.

An adaptation of Stephen King’s novel, this modern remake stars Julianne Moore as Carrie White’s overbearing and over-religious mother. The cruelty of teenage life is made even more cringeworthy, in this contemporary reboot, as, of course, we can now not only bully people, but we can record such incidences of bullying on our smart phones, keeping the footage available for future torture and abuse. Starring in the title role, Moretz looks delightfully kooky and just the right shade of weird – just as Cissy Spacek did in the original, whilst Julianne Moore makes for a fairly terrifying, nutty mom. 

Horror nerds are already debating online the validity of including the shots of Carrie covered in blood at the end of the movie. Deathwaltz Records even warned their Twitter followers: “I wouldn’t watch that Carrie trailer unless you want to see the whole movie in under 2 minutes. Yes we know how it ends but come on.” 2013 is set to be a year of great debate when it comes to horror remakes, with Maniac and Evil Dead both getting the modern-day treatment, as well as Carrie.
