Julianne Moore: My character in ‘Carrie’ is terrifying

FRANCE-FILM-FESTIVAL-CANNES Julianne Moore¬†plays Margaret White, the title character’s mother, in the remake of the 1976 horror film Carrie and she says her role is absolutely terrifying.

She told SFX magazine: ”It’s impossible not to be scary as this character. She is terrifying. I think any time you encounter a parent being cruel it’s terrifying and that’s the bottom line. If you think about being a child or an adolescent, you are relatively powerless.”

There was a huge line in the parking lot that wrapped all the way around. Then everybody coming out of the showing before us was white. We were all wondering, ‘Oh my God! What can it be? Why is it so scary?’ And then you spend the whole movie crying and it’s emotional, but you’re thinking it’s not very scary until you get to the end. I think it’s a seminal movie for all of us about adolescence,” the actress said.

The new movie was scheduled to be released on March 15, 2013, but was later moved to October 18, 2013.
