Watch: The Devil Never Dies In The Fiery New Trailer For ‘Carrie’ Starring Chloe Moretz

Watch: The Devil Never Dies In The Fiery New Trailer For 'Carrie' Starring Chloe Moretz

This weekend, a young girl goes into the woods and comes out covered in blood after 90 minutes or so of sheer mayhem. And while “Carrie” may not have to employ the use of a chainsaw, she’s got some other powers on hand that nonetheless will still leave things ending just as red.

The brand new, full length trailer for the remake of “Carrie” is here, putting the teenage girl’s telekinetic powers on full display. Chloe Moretz leads the Kimberly Peirce directed redo, and word on the street is that it hews a bit closer to Stephen King‘s novel than Brian De Palma‘s classic ’70s take. “It’s less of a remake and more of a retelling of the book,” Moretz told Marie Claire earlier this year. “It’s a romantic-abusive love story between mother and daughter that, even if you had a fine life growing up, brings out every insecurity within you.” 

So, now that you’ve had a better look after the first brief teaser, what are you thoughts? Does Moretz give Sissy Spacek a run for her money? Is Moore on point? Tell us below. “Carrie” gets revenge on October 18th.

While I don't like that the trailer is pretty much giving everything away, I'll still go watch it. Julianne Moore is amazing and I'm really curious what Kimberly Peirce has brought to the table. I still don't like Chloe Moretz in the lead. She looks more like those popular high school girls than a pariah.


Ther's only one Carrie, and it's Sissy Spacek. This remake is laughable and awful. Chloe Moretz is a good actress, but she's too pretty for this role. How can you believe she's Carrie? Carrie can't be hot!


Looks more like a Stephen King movie. And they pretty much give you the whole story in the trailer. The only reason I have any interest in seeing the movie is the actors. Moore and Mortez are great. But from even watching the trailer, it doesn't look that different from the DePalma film, just glossier.


well i think i just watched the whole movie so im good, dont ever have to watch it again


This movie looks positively awful.


EL HANSO, you made a good point about the telekinesis aspect of the story, in this trailer. It seems like the filmmaker and the screenwriter didn't handle it properly.


LOVED the original and I have to say that this looks amazing!!


Hard to tell from a trailer, but so far there's no indication that this movie is invested in the primal emotions that the book and De Palma's film were so good at tapping into – feeling like an outcast, wanting to assert your own power. It seems more concerned with flashy visuals.


Love it every second of it love it and I am damn sure old enough to remember the other version!!! Nothing wrong with that version also but this stands on it's own!


Meh. Looks like a Screen Gems movie, all right.


Based on this trailer, I'm not sure what makes her "different"/weird/all the other characteristics Carrie is supposed to have.

This looks terrible. There's no camp!


So much for this being a retelling of the book. Based on that trailer they've lifted entire portions & segments not present in the book at all directly from De Palma's classic. Hell, the design of the prom set looks perfectly identical to the original.
There seemed like A LOT of potential in Kimberely Pierce – director of Boys Don't Cry – taking on the Carrie story. Hell, wouldn't it make a fanatastic "retelling" of the book if the reason super-attractive Chloe Moretz (yeah, like she'd be someone guys her age would steer clear of) is ostracized is because she's an outspoken lesbian? It's not exactly an original idea but would certainly be more timely than what this trailer indicates the film is doing…. which is nothing.
Ugh indeed.


I think it looks great and I'll definitely watch it!


I know this is a remake so there's probably not a ton of surprises but do they have to show every damn piece of the story in the trailer?

Does Moretz give Sissy Spacek a run for her money? —> Nothing against Chloe here, but that is an ABSURD question. Spacek is a once in a generation talent. Chloe, while good, hasn't reached that point yet. She was really good in Let Me In, which I suspect is probably a better performance then what we will see here. Too much lip pursing going on.
