A few new images from director Kimberly Peirce’s (Boys Don’t Cry) adaptation of the Stephen King novel Carrie have popped up online. For those unfamiliar, the film revolves around a young girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) who discovers she has telekinetic powers and who is abused at home by her ultra-religious mother (Julianne Moore) and tormented at school by her peers. The Brian De Palma film adaptation is a tough act to follow, and the recent full trailer for Carrie promised that Peirce isn’t holding back on the intensity of the story. It remains to be seen if this adaptation can confidently stand alone, but the prospect of some epic stand-offs between Moretz and Moore is certainly promising.

The film also stars Judy Greer, Portia Doubleday, Ansel Elgort, Alex Russell, and Gabriella Wilde. Carrie opens on October 18th.
