Blah sequel to the classic Brian DePalma original film adaptation of the Stephen King novel. Amy Irving is the only character to return for this sequel, which is really more of a remake (same bullies and mean girls, same telekinetic powers, and same everyone-pays-in-the-end climax). Katt Shea, who directed the enjoyably trashy "Poison Ivy", directed this film, so I'd hoped this would have the same kind of trashy camp value. I didn't expect anything as slick or smart at the DePalma version, but I was thinking there might be a fun. I suppose the bullies (one of whom is the oldest son from "Home Improvement") are nasty enough that it's is satisfying to see them get their comeuppance, but tha's really not enough to justify spending two hours watching the film. Emily Bergl is the new Carrie-figure, Jason London is the William Katt-nice-guy-figure, John Doe plays Carrie's mean dad and Mena Suvari has a bit part as a mean girl. Charlotte Ayanna is very pretty as one of the mean girls.
