The first shows Chloe's Carrie covered head to toe in the red stuff, looking at her hands in horror.

Moore is wearing a white robe very similar to the one Piper Laurie wore in the original flick ... and is holding onto a very pointy knife.

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. "Boys Don’t Cry" helmer Kimberly Peirce had a big, bucket-sized shadow to step out of when she decided to direct a modernized, more character-focused adaptation of Stephen King’s debut novel, which had already been mounted on the big screen by Brian De Palma in 1976. Chloë Grace Moretz steps into the role of the vengeful teen, while Julianne Moore will play her abusive, religious fundamentalist mother.

Sissy Spacek was in her mid-20s when she played the bullied telekinetic schoolgirl, but 15-year-old Moretz has experience playing characters whose age belies their wrath. With films like "Kick-Ass" and "Let Me In" under her belt, she’s no stranger to bloodbaths, although perhaps never one so literal as the iconic dousing that turns Carrie’s prom into a fiery nightmare. "We only have, like, four chances to get it right," Moretz says of the infamous scene. "Because that stuff stains your hair."
