Carrie is back! Just in time for Halloween, Stephen King’s thrilling tale is brought back to life starring Chloe Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore. Hear what Moretz says about becoming this misunderstood outcast and why you’ll be scared silly.

For those who haven’t seen the original Carrie starring Sissy Spacek in 1974, you’re in for a terrifying treat.

Carrie follows the terrifying tale of misfit high-school girl Carrie White (Chloe Grace Moretz), who gradually discovers that she has telekinetic powers. Aggressively sheltered at home by a domineering, ultra-religious mother (Moore), and tormented by her peers at school, Carrie’s efforts to fit in lead to a dramatic confrontation during the senior prom. A famous scene that will live on forever.

And, who better to take on the role than a teen herself, Moretz, who says she was immediately drawn to the part. “I’ve gone through a lot of different stuff,” says Moretz. “I’m actually living it and I remember it all, and I’m here in it while portraying her, so it was really close to home. That’s why it’s so beautiful for me to do it. I felt an attraction to the role.”

“It is probably the most vulnerable I’ve ever been as an actor,” Moretz continues. “So in some ways, it’s kind of terrifying for it to come out, but at the same time, it’ll be kind of an awakening for me because I’ve never been able to show that level of my personal emotions on screen before.”

In this video feature, Moretz, director Kimberly Peirce and Julianne Moore, describe what it was like filming this horrifying classic and why it still resonates today.


Carrie opens October 18 and stars Chloe Grace Moretz, Julianne Moore, Judy Greer, Portia Doubleday, Alex Russell, Gabriella Wilde and Ansel Elgort.
