not just another teen movie.

There’s a new trailer for the Carrie remake, and it looks pretty good.

It seems that the remake is playing it even darker than the original, which wasn’t exactly a sunny rom-com to begin with. Also, Chloe Moretz (a.k.a. Hit-Girl from Kick-Ass) has turned into a really impressive actress. I loved the hell out of Let Me In, another horror remake–this one of the Swedish Let The Right One In. I wouldn’t be surprised if Moretz’s role in this remake had a lot to do with the critical acclaim for her role in that other remake.

  1. A remake? Hmz… I don’t know. Carrie was the first King-horror I watched (illegally, because my mother didn’t agree). Am a fan ever since!

  2. So when they remade Let The Right One In, they did it as a horror movie? Because the original was pretty much just an awkward/cute romance.

  3. One of Chloe Moretz’s first big roles was as the North American voice actress of Darby, the little girl star of the “Winnie the Pooh & Tigger Too!” tv series. My oldet daughter was into that show in a big way, naming her favorite stuffed dog after the dog on the show and insisting — with all the righteous indignation a four-year old can muster — that HER name was Darby. Had half the kids in daycare thinking it was too.

    Chloe Moretz’s voice has a distinctive sound too it, and my daughter did a spot-on impersonation of it… Which made hearing her famous “Okay you c***s… Let’s see what you can do now!” line more than a little weird for me.
