Los Angeles - Chloe Moretz says the Carrie remake will "mess with your mind".

The Kick-Ass actress compares the forthcoming remake of the 1976 horror film to 2010 thriller Black Swan - which stars Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman - and admits the rebooted movie will be mainly based on the Stephen King novel of the same name.

She said: "The script is totally different from the [original]. It's more like the book. It's a more Black Swan version - it messes with your mind. You'll see things, and you don't know if you've seen them."

Chloe stars as the titular character - a bullied schoolgirl who discovers she has psychic powers and uses them to cause havoc in her hometown - in the movie alongside Julianne Moore, who plays her fundamentalist mother.

The 15-year-old star insists she isn't going to watch the original Brian De Palma motion picture - which sees Sissy Spacek portray the titular character - because she wants to put her "own take" on her alter ego.

She added to Vanity Fair magazine: "I'm not watching it in preparation for the movie, because we're doing something totally different, and I'm trying to bring my own take into it.

"I am changing everything about me - my hair, my look. I'm doing my own take on [the character]."

Carrie is due to be released in March 2013.
