Stephen King's high school horror tale Carrie is a modern classic, and Brian De Palma's 1976 film based on the book is a legend unto itself—filled with creepy, iconic scenes that will still freak you out to this day. Want to see how the new version is handling the very bloody finale?
As anyone who has seen the original movie knows, the pig's-blood prom prank is a true example of the nastiness of humanity, and serves as the straw that breaks the camel's back for Carrie's full-on freakout.
Judging by a new image from Entertainment Weekly, it seems the new version doesn't skimp on the blood—though we have to admit that Chloe Grace Moretz might look even more devastated than Sissy Spacek did in the original.
The magazine has also snagged a knife-wielding image of Julianne Moore as Carrie's super-religious, somewhat crazy mother, played by Piper Laurie in the original.
Judging by these sneak peeks, it seems new director Kimberley Peirce is keeping things pretty close to the canon. Let's just hope we don't get a shot-for-shot remake, because that would be a little boring.
If you need a refresher on Carrie, here's the official synopsis. So, read up before this one opens on March 13, 2013:
The quiet suburb of Chamberlain, Maine, is home to the deeply religious and conservative Margaret White (Moore) and her daughter, Carrie (Moretz). Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom Margaret has sheltered from society. Gym teacher Miss Desjardin (Greer) tries in vain to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargenson (Portia Doubleday), but only Chris' best friend, Sue Snell (Gabriella Wilde), regrets their actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross (Ansel Elgort), to take Carrie to prom. Pushed to the limit by her peers at the dance, Carrie unleashes telekinetic havoc.(Bloody-Disgusting via EW)
