Carrie Stunt Scares Crap Out of NYC Coffee Shop Customers

Carrie - Coffee Shop Telekinesis Stunt

Brian De Palma’s 1976 adaption of Stephen King’s Carrie gave me nightmares for years. In the movie Sissy Spacek plays the title role as the awkward teenager who uses her telekinetic power to takes revenge on her high school classmates (including a young John Travolta) after a horrific prom night prank.

37 years after the original, and 11 years after a 2002 TV movie remake, we’re back with Chloe Grace Moretz taking over the role of Carrie White.

To promote the movie, an elaborate stunt was set up and filmed at a cafe in New York City’s West Village. A special effects team set up false walls, tables that moved by remote control, and books that appeared to fly off the bookshelf. A team of actors were in place to react in horror as a young woman with special powers reacts badly to a spilled coffee.
