Halloween Week Trailer for your Weekend: Carrie

Cover of "Carrie (Special Edition)"

Cover of the blu-ray release of the 1976 Carrie

As far as horror novelists go, Steven King is basically the guy. After a couple of failed to read his books, I knocked Carrie over on a holiday once, and loved it. It’s a lean, taut page turner that in the right hands could make a killer movie. By all accounts (I shamefully still haven’t seen it) Brian De Palma achieved this with his 1976 adaptation.

Here is the first teaser for the inevitable remake which is coming your way soonish. I’m not a huge fan of teasers in general, I don’t think they usually give you enough of a taste of the film. And this is not much different. But given the source material and the presence of Hit Girl herself Chloe Moretz, I’ll be checking this one out when it opens.

What do you guys think of this one?

  1. This looks interesting. I’d like to check out the original first, though.

    1. I’m exactly the same. Will definitely be taking a look at the original first. I really loved the book too. Very taught horror story.
