Screen Gems has released a batch of new high-resolution images from director Kimberly Peirce’s upcoming new adaptation of 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). These images give a nice overview of Peirce’s take on the material, including a tease of the famous “blood dump” scene.

The film also stars Ansel Elgort, Portia Doubleday, Gabriella Wilde, and Alex Russell. Carrie opens in theaters on October 18th. [Update: Screen Gems has also released a "viral video" in which they staged a telekinetic breakdown at a NYC coffee shop and filmed the reactions of the unsuspecting bystanders.]

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.
