Posted by Laura Gaddy On January - 26 - 2014 0 Comment

Carrie is a classic horror tale of teen revenge and rejection known for it’s iconic blood-dump prom scene. A new re-imagining of Carrie is out on Blu-Ray and DVD now. The film is based on the novel by Stephen King and the script is adapted by Lawrence D. Cohen and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.

The Blu-Ray includes a chilling alternate ending not seen in theaters as well as a “Bringing Back Carrie” Featurette, deleted scenes, “The Power of Telekinesis”, and footage of the Telekinetic Coffee Shop Surprise viral video with a staged telekenisis outburst in a cafe with real patron reactions. The film stars Chloë Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass 2, Dark Shadows) and Julianne Moore (Don Jon, Game Change), and Gabriella Wilde (The Three Musketeers, Dr. Who).

Kimberly Peirce who is known for her work on Boys Don’t Cry sat down with us to discuss her role directing Carrie, which recently won a People’s Choice Award for Favorite Horror Movie. She talks about adding her twist on this version of the story and why she fell in love with with the book and original film, rooting for the underdog, tackling bullying and hard subjects, and what it took to accomplish the blood dump scene.
