WebHits: Telekinetic coffee shop surprise
MANILA, Philippines - Here's a one-of-a-kind coffee shop experience.
In a hidden camera experiment promoting the 2013 film adaptation of Stephen King's novel Carrie, a girl displaying telekinetic ability pushes a man up the wall after he accidentally spills coffee on her computer.
The experiment aims to get real reactions from "unsuspecting customers at a New York City coffee shop."
Carrie is the third film adaptation of King's 1974 novel. The producers reportedly used a script that is more faithful to King's original novel. The film stars Chloë Grace Moretz as Carrie White, and Julianne Moore as Carrie's mother, Margaret White.
The 1976 film starring Sissy Spacek was directed by Brian De Palma and written by Lawrence D. Cohen. De Palma's Carrie is etched in memory of 70's moviegoers as she stands on the stage dripping in blood right before chaos starts.
moviefone.com reports that Director Kimberly Peirce wanted to "chart her own course" in the upcoming remake of the 1976 horror classic, including getting the iconic moments right.
