In the much anticipated remake of the 1981 cult-hit horror film, five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin. When they discover a Book of the Dead, they unwittingly summon up long-dormant demons that possess each of those friends in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival. Appearing in person: Producer (as well as the original Ash himself) Bruce Campbell, star Jane Levy (TV’s Suburgatory) and director Fede Alvarez.

Here’s the synopsis for the Carrie panel:

A reimagining of the classic Stephen King 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. Appearing in person: Chloë Grace Moretz, Julianne Moore and director Kimberly Peirce. Please join all of us from Screen Gems to ask questions and see exclusive footage.
