The first full trailer for "Carrie," another remake of the big screen adaptation of Stephen King's novel of the same name, should serve as a horrific reminder of the potentially deadly effects of bullying.

Chloë Grace Moretz takes over for Sissy Spacek, who starred as Carrie White in Brian De Palma's 1976 version of the film, and dishes out the same bloody revenge on her tormenters after discovering her telekinetic powers.

Julianne Moore stars as one of those tormenters — Carrie's unstable Christian fundamentalist mother, previously portrayed by Piper Laurie in the first film, who regularly locks her daughter in the closet to pray.

In director Kimberly Peirce's version of the terrifying tale, Carrie turns the tables and gives her not-so-loving mother her own seven minutes in heaven.
