After the first few images leaked yesterday, today we have the teaser trailer for the remake of Stephen King’s Carrie, directed by Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don’t Cry) and starring Chloë Moretz. GRR, UMLAUTS!

A re-imagining 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.

But what’s Chloë Moretz doing at a senior prom, she’s only 15! How much of an outcast could she really be if seniors are taking her to their prom? I didn’t go to a prom when I was 15, you didn’t see me covering people with pig’s blood. Of course, my only real power back then was magically getting nacho cheese stains on my shirt every break, so perhaps it’s an unfair comparison.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen the original Carrie. I assume it’s some sort of metaphor for a girl learning that as she matures, a terrible power grows inside her? Hence all the blood? Anyway, I got through this entire post without saying anything pervy about Chloe Moretz. Aren’t you proud of me?
