The film company behind a recent adaption of classic horror flick Carrie have created a stir online, after a video they shot to promote the film went viral.

The company took over a coffee shop in New York City's West Village, rigging the tables, chairs and books up to mobile devices that allowed them to be controlled and moved remotely.

A fake wall was erected and an actor attached to a harness and pulley system to create the illusion he was flying into the air.

A female actress feigned anger at another diner spilling coffee on her laptop, screaming at him before appearing to use her telekinetic powers to throw him against a wall.

The priceless reactions of diners in the store were captured on hidden video cameras placed in the cafe.
