Now, the film's lead star Chloe Moretz tells Fangoria that the delay allowed reshoots in Toronto this past May to make the film scarier. Here's her explanation:
"We actually prolonged the film, to be honest. We did some reshoots, and added three extra scenes with Julianne [Moore, as Carrie’s mother] and I to make the movie even deeper and darker.
We prolonged a couple of scenes that needed to have an extra moment or an extra beat just to make it even deeper. It wasn’t about cutting anything out or trying to edit around things; it was about adding more to make the movie scarier and more intense."
**I suppose this is good. It's nice to see that they're not just settling with what they have, that they recognize the film can be better and are committed to making it such.** Kind of refreshing.
