Screen Gems has released the first clip from director Kimberly Peirce’s horror remake Carrie.  For those unfamiliar with the story, it centers on a bullied teenage girl (played by Chloe Grace Moretz) who discovers she has telekinetic powers, and decides to dish out retribution against her tormentors including her abusive mother (played by Julianne Moore).  This clip features a few of the hallmarks from Brian De Palma’s original film, as we see Moore’s character locked young Carrie up in the closet, which is adorned with religious imagery.  This is Peirce’s first foray into the horror genre, and I’m very interested to see her take on the material.

Here’s the official synopsis for Carrie:

A reimagining of the classic horror tale about Carrie White (Chloë Grace Moretz), a shy girl outcast by her peers and sheltered by her deeply religious mother (Julianne Moore), who unleashes telekinetic terror on her small town after being pushed too far at her senior prom.

Based on the best-selling novel by Stephen King, Carrie is directed by Kimberly Peirce with a screenplay by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
