The New York Comic-Con played host to a lot of lucky people — alas, I was not among them — this past weekend, who enjoyed tons of comics and movie promotions. One of the many presentations there featured a sneak peek at the upcoming horror remake Carrie, statting Chloë Grace Moretz in the role that put Sissy Spacek on the map.
In addition to unveiling an international poster — which I find to be very creepy, even though it’s just another version of Chloë’s blood-spattered face — a brief teaser reel was shown. Clocking in at just under one minute, the teaser is just that: a tease. We only catch a brief glimpse of Carrie herself. The meat of the clip seems to be the voice-overs by various characters that tackle the idea that Carrie goes crazy and destroys the whole town.
Director Kimberly Peirce‘s visual style seems to be dark and sweeping, but it’s hard to tell from this tiny sample.
