Riding the momentum of her highly regarded performance in "Dark Shadows," Chloe Moretz is now earning acclaim from her co-stars for her work in "Carrie."

The 15-year-old actress plays the title character in the 2013 reboot of the 1976 horror classic about a social outcast who discovers she has psionic power that flares up when she becomes angry or distressed.

"Californication" actress Judy Greer, who plays Mrs. Desjardin in the film, had these words to say to E! about her young co-star. "Chloe's performance - and this is literal - has brought me to tears on set. She's made me cry because I find her performance to be incredibly moving. I'm feeling a lot of compassion for her."

Still awaiting the filming of the most famous scene, a pig-blood filled prom sequence, Greer described director Kimberly Peirce's take on the scene as "kind of beautiful. It's really totally jarring and creepy, but also in a strange way gorgeous."

The movie will be released sometime early next year.
