In a New York City coffee shop, a horror-inspired prank gave customers more of a jolt than they came for.

A marketing stunt promoting upcoming horror remake "Carrie" used a fake wall, remote-controlled tables and chairs and spring-loaded bookshelves.

The people behind the stunt used the props to make it appear as though a patron was using telekinesis after someone knocked over her coffee.

A hidden camera captures it all, and the resulting video has more than 3 million views so far.

The "Carrie" remake stars Chloe Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore. It opens in theaters October 18.
