Chloe Grace Moretz busts out her telekinetic best as Carrie in the new, big-screen take on the Stephen King classic, and we were on the film's set to get the young-star's take on recreating an iconic horror character -- and what it was like to get a bucket of pig's blood dumped on her!

"It was pretty intense -- we did two days of the pig blood, and it was crazy," she tells ET. "It was so heavy. I was like, 'Wow, it's cold, and really heavy!'"
In all fairness, the filmmakers didn't dump actual pig's blood on Carrie during the climactic prom scene. "It's like sweet and sour sauce, like a Chinese hoisin sauce," explains Chloe. "It's kind of like a weird, sticky, thick concoction."
In theaters October 18, Carrie follows the events that occur when a timid teen -- shunned by her peers and sheltered by her overprotective, deeply religious mother (played by Julianne Moore) -- discovers that she has telekinetic powers and unleashes terror on her small town after being pushed too far at the senior prom. The film is directed by Kimberly Pierce.

"It's a huge honor to be a part of a movie like this because the original movie isn't just beautiful and amazing, it's De Palma and Sissy Spacek, and I think it's one of the greatest movies ever made," gushes Chloe. "But it's such a beautiful story. It's so much more than just a thriller, horror [movie]. It's a beautiful love story for this mother and daughter. ... Being able to work with Julianne was something I'll never be able to forget, I'm sure."
