Carrie Prank Terrifies Cafe Patrons: See Scary Video!
A remake of the 1976 Stephen King horror classic Carrie has been produced -- yet again. The studio (Sony Screen Gems) has posted a video on YouTube promoting the new flick that ostensibly depicts unsuspecting cafÃ© patrons in New York being terrified by a young woman exhibiting Carrie-like telekinetic powers.
The prank starts when a customer, actually a stuntman, spills his coffee on the Carrie lookalike. Incensed, she points the palm of her hand in his direction and he zooms up the wall.
Call me a cynic but I don`t think there was a single genuine customer in the cafÃ©; I would bet my VHS copy of Carrie that everybody in that place was an actor.
Had there been real customers in that cafÃ©, at least one of them would have been an evangelical who would have responded by hurling hot coffee in the face of the" demon-possessed witch."
Not to mention that such a horrifying scenario could have triggered a heart attack in a real person. The studio would be assuming too much liability by staging a prank that included real people.
Hopefully the remake will be better than the prank video!
