'Carrie' prank at coffee shop promotes movie remake
October 8, 2013 (NEW YORK) -- A trip to the coffee shop can bring out your inner demon. Patrons at 'Snice Cafe in New York City's West Village learned that scary truth as part of an elaborate prank.
Twisted jokesters rigged tables and books to move by remote control, making it appear as though a possessed woman, who was angry over spilled coffee, had telekinetic powers. The crew even constructed a fake wall and pulley system to create the illusion of a customer flying up into the air.
The people behind the adaptation of the classic horror film "Carrie" staged the prank as promotion for the movie, which debuts in theaters Oct. 18.
