Though we'd seen a brief glimpse of the blood-covered title character of Carrie a few months ago, today we get a full trailer for the remake of the 1970s horror classic. Chloë Moretz stars as the shy high schooler with telekinetic powers, while Julianne Moore plays her mother, a strictly religious woman who deals with Carrie's powers by locking her in a closet, screaming. When Carrie's cruel classmates play a prank on her at the prom, Carrie uses her skills to get her revenge on everyone.


The new Carrie looks like it's going to be every bit as chilling as the original, but with modern touches (all the kids now have cell phones to document their bullying of Carrie) and updated special effects. I'm happy to see the inclusion of famous scenes (the tampon-throwing torture) and lines ("They're all gonna laugh at you"), but I'm most struck by how terrifying Moore is — and she doesn't even have any special powers. Carrie comes out Oct. 18, and you can watch the trailer after the jump.
