Movie Info

The Rage: Carrie 2 is set in a small town high school, where the members of the football team set the social order. Emulating the "Spur Posse" from Lakewood, California, the boys on the team compete to see who can seduce the most girls, rating them on a point system, and then discarding them as pathetic losers. The story opens with Lisa (Mena Suvari), a victim of this game who responds by jumping off the school to her death. Lisa turns out to be the only friend of Rachel Lang (Emily Bergl).

The best thing about Carrie 2 is the way the cruelties of the cliquish schoolgirls and macho jocks are built up so you're fairly itching to see them get their eyeballs popped out and their privates harpooned.

While the movie isn't a masterpiece, it's a really respectable follow-up to the DePalma film...

Carrie 2's schizy sexual persona comes complete with multiple close-ups of teen female T&A.

There is nothing worse than watching a bad movie while being constantly reminded of a great one.

More of a remake than a sequel, but pretty weak either way.

Fails to offer even one compelling reason for its pathetic existence.

This low-rent, convoluted follow-up gives the great original a bad name.

Not even worth direct to video. Just run the hell away.

Audience Reviews for The Rage: Carrie 2

This film offers nothing new, and plays out like a case of been there done that. The result is a bad film with a poor script and a low budget vibe. This film relies more on the gore elements this time around, and focuses less on the story, not that it matters because when it does, it navigates familiar territory that becomes predictable. The film suffers greatly due to its bad cast and poorly written script. The film is a pointless unnecessary sequel. I've thrown that term around quite a bit in describing horror sequels, but this is true with The Rage. I thought the film was bad with little substance. The film tends to play more on the gore effects. Director Katt Shea is more focused on grossing out the audience than scaring it. Considering that this is a sequel to a horror classic, you'd think that they would make it good. Unfortunately the result is a film that misses the mark and is a victim of its own conception because of the fact that it relies on gore and other assorted special effects. If more attention would have been given to its story, then the film might have been better, but it's not to be. The film has a high body count and if you love gore, you may enjoy this film. But to those whore are expecting a film like Carrie, you'll be sadly disappointed. The Rage plays out like a gore fest with slasher film elements due to a high body count. Nothing original is at work here, thus fans of the classic film will find this film pointless, stupid and a slap in the face of the original.

It's no wonder fans of the 1976 Stephen King movie CARRIE are scratching there heads about this film. Besides the fact that Rachel Lang is supposedly Carrie White's half-sister; and Sue Snell, one of the main bullies in the original film, has now ironically become the school's guidance counselor (still portrayed by Amy Irving); THE RAGE virtually has nothing in common with CARRIE. In fact, the title is very misleading. If this were to be even remotely better, somebody could have simply suggested changing the title to something like, "Rachel: The Rage", and billing it as "the follow-up to CARRIE."

As a whole, CARRIE was a prom film, with a horrific twist. Does THE RAGE: CARRIE 2 even hint at the possibility of a prom being held? Of course not! That's what bad sequels are for, anyway. And this is supposed to be a supernatural horror film, like the original, because Rachel also has telekinetic powers (what next, a film in which we discover that their common father has telekinesis, and that it was genetic to begin with?). There's the scenes that show the supernatural side (i.e. a scene early on after Lisa commits suicide, and because of this, Rachel becomes mentally frustrated, causing every locker in the school to fly open), but the "horror" of it all is never revealed. So really, this is just like a science fiction film.

The music was part of what gave nightmares to many people who watched CARRIE. Why does it come across as surprising that there is one solid theme in the beginning, and the rest is just a bunch of rock tunes composed by Danny B. Harvey (whoever he is)? Who finds rock music scary, anyway?

Overall, THE RAGE: CARRIE 2 is dreadfully underwhelming. There is nothing horrific about it, and it is just an unsuccessful homage to the 1976 classic. Do not waste your time with it.

yea so ive never heard of Emily Bergl but apparently thats the girl who played Carrie. and well i saw this a few times when i was little and it scared me cause id never seen violence before, but that doesnt mean its that good... one good scene tho: she telepathically squeezes this chicks eyes til they bleed out of her head and then that girl accidentally blows off the balls of that kid from Home Improvement (not J.T.T.) with like a harpoon or something. yea that kicked some ass

A 90's sequel to "Carrie" with a new girl Rachel (Emily Bergl), another girl with telekinetic powers, sruggling to fit in with her peers. It's a sad story. The final massacre of the classmates is spectacular. Amy Irving makes a great appearance, as the only survivor from the first movie. I found this movie too sad.
