Here at Hollywire, we love a good scary flick and one our favorite stars, Chloë Grace Moretz, steps into the shoes of a shy, teenage outcast in the upcoming re-imagination of Carrie, out this October.
Directed by Kimberly Peirce, the classic horror film tells the story of Carrie White (Moretz) who is an outcast shunned by everyone at school and is sheltered from the world by her religious mother (Julianne Moore).
After getting a peek at Chloë as an outcast, it got us thinking about some of our other favorite misfits in film throughout the years. Take a look back at some of the most memorable ones!
