The promotional masterminds behind the remake of cult classic horror film ‘Carrie’ have staged an ingenious telekinetic prank and promotional film video on coffee-shop patrons in NYC. The West Village ‘Snice' café was rigged so that books, tables, chairs and even a person, moved with the push of a remote controller.

The premise of the prank was simple: a girl becomes disgruntled when a fellow customer spills coffee on her. In a fit of rage, she catapults the customer against the wall – using only her mind. Of course, these were both professional actors and stuntmen.

Hidden cameras documented the horrified, stunned and bewildered reactions of the unassuming clientele – most of whom eventually bolt out of the store. The film, starring Chloe Moretz in the title role, is released on October 18th.
