'CARRIE'-ING ON THE TRADITION Chloe Moretz reprises the title role of this classic film

Details Release Date: Oct 18, 2013; Rated: R; Length: 92 Minutes; Genre: Horror; With: Judy Greer, Julianne Moore and Chloe Grace Moretz; Distributor: Sony Pictures Entertainment

Carrie White in her prom dress, streaked with blood: It's one of those indelible cinematic images that are harder to scrub from your mind than, well, blood from a prom dress. Sissy Spacek played the bullied telekinetic schoolgirl in the1976 film adaptation of Stephen King's debut novel, but in director Kimberly Peirce's modernized, more character-focused remake the role belongs to Chloë Grace Moretz. The young actress has previously played girls dangerous beyond their years in films like Kick-Ass and Let Me In, but never one as tragic as Carrie, whose tormentors include a religious mother (Julianne Moore) and the cruel high schoolers who douse her in blood. ''We only have, like, four chances to get it right,'' Moretz says of the infamous scene. ''Because that stuff stains your hair.''
