The Rage: Carrie 2 Review


A horrible massacre strikes up after an outcast teenage girl is taunted by a group of high school jocks, all of them unaware of her cutthroat telekinetic powers.

The Rage: Carrie 2 (1999) is a rate R 1h 44 min American science-fiction supernatural drama-horror-thriller film that is a sequel to Carrie (1976) and was based on Stephen King novel of the same name. Director Katt Shea (Poison Ivy (1992), Streets (1990), Stripped to Kill (1987)) did an average job executing this movie that failed at the box office grossing about $17 million with a $21 million budget.

The Rage: Carrie 2 revolves around teenager Rachel (Blue Jasmine Hal and Jasmine’s Friend (2013), Men in Trees (2006-2008), Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus (2006)) who is somewhat awkward and lives with her foster family in a trailer. Things took a quick turn in high school for Rachel as her life went from bad to disastrous worse. Rachel’s birth mother is in a mental institute; her best does not want anything to do with anymore, she falls in love with the wrong guy who ultimately gets her into a heap load of mess and Rachel has powers to move things with her mind. She cannot only move things with her mind, but she can also murder people and tear things apart.

The Rage: Carrie 2 was pretty messy, but the movie overall was an average movie that was a good watch for a rainy day. I could not get over how the visual standpoint was remarkably beautiful and an eye feast. Lead actress Emily Bergl gave us an astonishing performance as Rachel. I am a sucker for romance, and the romance part of the film just won me over as it was touching because you can see the chemistry between the actors.

I was not head over heels over the final blood-soaked scene/chapter because it feels out of place. The movie went from drama to a bloodfest with no in between. I was in shock when I saw Rachel being a pro with her powers - when in the world did this happened? I believed that Sue’s (Amy Irving - Hide and Seek (2005), Adam (2009), Yentl (1983)) character was not needed in this film. The only reason she was pushed into this film was that she was the only survivor from the original Carrie. There were a few other elements that did not fit right with the film, but I will let you discover that for yourselves.
