First Look: A Bloody Chloë Moretz in Carrie

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | August 23, 2012 | Comments ()


A few weeks ago, Jay Stevens wrote a pretty solid piece on how none of the adaptations of Stephen King's Carrie have actually managed to capture the essence of the novel, casting folks like Sissy Spacek and Moretz instead of characters more like how they were written in King's source material: A "little fat in the middle, having long dirty-looking, dark blond hair and acne."

Moretz certainly doesn't fit that description, and with our first look at the movie, we can prove that (assuming there's not a lot of acne buried underneath the layer of blood). This is from Moretz's Instagram account.


Now here, via Screencrush, are what the characters looked like in Spacek's 1976 version.

In case you missed it in Jay's post, here's some B-roll footage from Carrie, which I find strangely fascinating in its banality. Making movies looks really boring.
