    Okay as an avid horror movie watcher Carrie 2 The Rage brings a little bit of the backstory from the original though this is a 1999 sequel to The to the 1976 original starring Sissy Spacek it is an alright movie so that's reason I'm giving it a 4-star rating there is a lot of omage to the original and a member of the original cast did come back to play and the sequel so I'm really disappointed when people bash movies

    A chilling representation of Nineties thrillers. If you love Stephen King stories and Ten Things I Hate About You, you will be entertained.

    An uninspired, predictable, and overall confusing plot with brain dead characters make it a complete waste of time and one of the worst sequels I have ever seen. Highly not recommended

    Not as good as the original, of course, but I didn't think it was bad.

    Suffers from 90itis, but it's still a fun and stylish follow up. Copies a lot of the same beats of the original, but brings some new ones.

    Desconsiderando que é uma sequência direta do filme de 1976, até que não é tão ruim quanto se espera.

    The sequel to the masterpiece "Carrie" could've been worse but it is still remotely unsatisfying.

    It's a bit silly as a sequel to the original film, but the characters are well developed, though somewhat generic, and the effects are nice. Otherwise, it's mostly a rehash of the first Carrie, and most of the themes from it are left out.

    This is not terrible, which is probably the best that can be hoped from a sequel made 23 years after the fact. The basic set up is okay ... with some issues. Not enough thought seems to have been put into the character dynamics. While you can see why a wallflower like Carrie White would be happy receiving attention from William Katt, it's totally mystifying why a fairly rebellious, independent-minded young girl would be happy to be befriended by the raging assholes in this film. It's not even clear how anyone can tolerate them for more than a few minutes. While it's nice having Amy Irving back as a thread to the original film, her single-mindedness in this film comes off as more "crazy lady" than helpful. Finally, while the bloodiness of the climax is kind of welcome, it's tonally inconsistent comes off as more unintentionally funny than it should.
