New TV Spot for CARRIE Reveals R-Rating

From an outsider’s perspective, Carrie was on the bubble as far as an MPAA rating was concerned.  The film stars Chloe Grace Moretz as a tormented young girl who discovers she has telekinetic powers and a desire for retribution.  From what we’ve seen so far, it looked like the rating could go either way.  However, a new TV spot has confirmed that October’s only wide-release horror film will be Rated-R.  That could mean slightly lower box office, but as we saw this summer with The Conjuring, a modestly-budgeted R-rated horror film can make a huge splash if the timing is right and the buzz is positive.  I haven’t heard anything regarding the new adaptation of Stephen King‘s novel, but I hope director Kimberly Peirce has found a way to have her remake stand apart from Brian De Palma‘s classic original.

Hit the jump to check out the TV spot.  Carrie also stars Julianne Moore and Judy Greer.  Carrie opens October 18th.

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.
