Julianne Moore Keeps Hitting Herself In New ‘Carrie’ Clip, Plus New Photos Reveal Infamous Shower Scene

Julianne Moore Keeps Hitting Herself In New 'Carrie' Clip, Plus New Photos Reveal Infamous Shower Scene

For a movie that opens on Friday, there isn’t a whole lot we know about “Carrie,” the highly anticipated remake of the beloved Brian De Palma film (based, once again, on Stephen King‘s debut novel). “Boys Don’t Cry” filmmaker Kimberly Peirce directed the remake from a script by certifiable genius Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, although studio Sony has been cagey about screening the movie and only a handful of people have actually seen it (including those who attended the “Carrie” panel at New York Comic Con last weekend). Instead, we’ll all have to make due with the clips that have been popping up online—like the one we have right here (via Comic Book Movie).

In the clip, Margaret White (memorably played by Piper Laurie in the original and here essayed by Julianne Moore), the mother of the troubled, telekinetic teen Carrie (once Sissy Spacek, now Chloe Grace Moretz), is seen beating her head against a wall. Carrie comes in and questions why she’s doing it and… The scene ends. That moment when Moore groans, “Don’t look honey,” is pretty creepy, we must say.

It’s not exactly the most self-explanatory clip and you can’t tell a whole lot about the direction from the clip (besides Peirce’s use of extreme angles), but hey, the movie comes out on Friday so it will only be a mystery for a couple more days. You can watch the clip below and check out some new photos,one above that shows the remake recreating the film’s infamous shower scene. “Carrie” hits theaters this Friday, October 18.

I'd say that, as it turns out, it's really interesting to compare the promo campaigns for Carrie and Evil dead. Two horror remakes with Sony involved (although TriStar was the actual distributor for Evil Dead): two completely different campaigns.
Among other things it says a lot about the "demographic" they're aiming at with each film. And maybe about what Carrie will look like (talking about the movie… obviously).
