The Rage: Carrie 2 (1999)

Directed by Katt Shea.  Written by Rafael Moreu.  Starring Emily Bergl, Jason London, Mena Suvari, Zachery Ty Bryan and Eddie Kay Thomas.

Plot: after her bullied best friend commits suicide, a powerful, telekinetic girl gets revenge by attacking the popular students


Here’s a sequel that didn’t need to be made.  Carrie 2 starts off with a terrible script and ends up a terrible story.  The first half hour or so isn’t that bad, but then it gets very dull, very quickly.

Apparently, Carrie was Rachel’s (Bergl) half-sister.  And apparently this “gift” is passed down through males although they never really explain that.  She and her only friend are bullied just like Carrie was.  But she’s a bit dumber than Carrie ever was, I feel.  I mean, in the end, did she really think these people had changed their spots?  I’m made to believe that she does believe that and that makes her one of the dumbest characters in any movie I’ve ever seen.

The movie is unrealistic and it treats you like you are stupid.  It’s essentially one long episode of Dawson’s Creek with some blood at the end.  (Though I must say, I like Dawson’s Creek more than this movie.)  We can’t believe the woman who played Sue in the original movie agreed to come back for this.

There were a few good things about the movie.  The acting wasn’t terrible for one.  I enjoy looking at Jason London as well.  And in the end, he got to keep the dog.  I mean, the dog didn’t die which is almost unheard of in horror movies, so I love it.  I still don’t recommend the movie though.

My score: 26.  DJ’s score: 18.
