CARRIE (Interview Director)


In a recent interview with Empire Magazine, Kimberly Peirce, the director behind the remake of Stephen King's classic horror story Carrie, which stars Chloe Moretz and Julianne Moore, talks about adapting the book, and the visual effects used in the film.

Peirce spoke about the iconic pig's blood scene and how important it was for them to get it right, saying:

“We've done all these tests. One time the blood drops on Carrie's head and then it goes out to the sides like her head's an umbrella. So you don't really get any on her. We've done other tests where it goes boom and it's too fast, and some where it goes on her shoulders, which is no good. We went from one gallon to five, and then we had to test the viscosity, how thick or thin, and we found that we need to cascade, it has to move from the back to the front. A million things can go wrong...”

Special effects makes doing things a lot easier these days for filmmakers, with Peirce taking full advantage of it saying,

“The opportunities with VFX are amazing. Every year they get better and better. What it means is that with less and less money we can stage these elements we need. Doing much of this stuff practically would take production time that I don't have. It's a fantasy to do this stuff. It's fun as a filmmaker to play with bigger and bigger tools, but the key is to be grounded in the story. I hope you find yourself as madly in love with these characters as I am...”

She then went on to talk about the characters in the film saying,

“I've gone back to the book and fleshed out some of the characters. But the real appeal is Carrie. She's so innocent and naive. I fell in love with her all over again.”

Carrie will be released on on October 18th, 2013.


The quiet suburb of Chamberlain, Maine is home to the deeply religious and conservative Margaret White and her daughter Carrie. Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom Margaret has sheltered from society. Gym teacher Miss Desjardin tries in vain to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargenson, but only Chris’ best friend, Sue Snell, regrets their actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross, to take Carrie to prom. Pushed to the limit by her peers at the dance, Carrie unleashes telekinetic havoc.
