Product Description

Amazon.ca

The best stuff in this ridiculously conceived sequel to Brian De Palma's groundbreaking '70s classic are the occasional, too-brief flashbacks to De Palma's groundbreaking '70s classic. They occur in the mind of Sue Snell (Amy Irving, shamelessly reprising her role), the only main character left alive during Carrie's prom revenge freakout. After a brief stint in an insane asylum, Snell is now a therapist at a suburban high school and is currently counseling Rachel Lang (Emily Bergl). Rachel isn't like other girls. When Rachel gets really mad, she moves things with her mind. Rachel's been really mad lately, because her best friend jumped from a rooftop in the first 10 minutes of this movie. Even though there's absolutely no development of this relationship, don't doubt it: we know they're best friends because they have matching tattoos. Rachel's friend lost it because she was the latest victim in a fun game that members of the football team play off the field in which they keep a running count of how many girls they can seduce, using a rating scale based on appearance. Of course, there's a nice one, Jesse (Jason London), who feels guilty about playing the game and falls for Carrie, er, Rachel. Everything appears to be changing for Rachel, but Jesse's friends have other plans. Snell knows what's up, however, and it's pretty funny watching her explain it to Rachel: "I've been through this movie before" is essentially what she says, but Rachel doesn't want to hear that she's not an original character, that she's a cheap, slightly hardened and revised '90s rip-off with no autonomy. It makes Rachel want to move things with her mind. --Dave McCoy

2.0 out of 5 stars Sequel only underscores greatness of the original March 21 2002
Format:DVD
The Rage: Carrie 2 would be considered a dandy little horror flick, if it were not for the fact that it is a sequel to Carrie, a classic of this genre. It is a prime example of the pitfalls of trying to copy any movie that has attained cult status. Of course, if you haven't seen the original, the new movie should work for you. Your best bet is to watch this one first, then see the original.
The Rage takes place twenty-plus years after the original Carrie wreaked havoc on most of the students in her high school. The new heroine with an attitude is called Rachael, and she is played rather well by Emily Bergl. Rachael is the quintessential movie character with a rotten childhood. Mom flips out and is thrown in a mental institution when Rachael is five or six years old. Fast forward to the present. Rachael is now a high school senior. She's been brought up by cold foster parents, who seem to be keeping her around for the money the state pays them. Girls in movies like this are allowed only one friend, who is usually female and always crazier than she is. Rachael's friend goes from girl on top of the world on a Monday morning to girl who jumps from the top of the school that afternoon. All of this serves merely as an excuse for Rachael's madness to be unleashed. As soon as she discovers that her friend's leap was caused by group of callous, rich, beautiful students, she goes to work. Like the original Carrie, this young woman has telekinesis, which is the ability to move objects. She moves them with a vengeance.
Poor Amy Irving returns as Sue Small, who was student in the original movie. She tried to befriend Carrie. That attempt gave her a nervous breakdown, and now, as the school's principal, she has not learned her lesson.

3.0 out of 5 stars almost comparable to the original Nov. 12 2007

is The Rage:Carrie 2 a worth successor to the original Carrie?hard to
say.it has its moments,or rather moment.the problem is,that moment does
not occur until the end of the movie.much of the movie comes off
looking like your typical teen movie.by that i mean it has all the
stereotypical caricatures you expect in a teen movie.which is
great,unless you are expecting something more.the acting is OK,given
the dialogue.however,there is no suspense in this film and the music
does not compare to the original.the plot follows the original Carrie
somewhat,although there is less of a relationship between the awkward
outcast and her mother,in fact almost none.there is however,one little
twist to the story,which i liked.the outcast this time is named
Rachel.however unlike Carrie,Rachel is not some much taunted by her
classmates as she is shunned,as if she doesn't exist.it is not until
later in the film,through a series of events,which i won't go into
here,that Rachel becomes the target of cruel abuse and ridicule.what
Rachel goes through is pretty mean,but is it comparable what Carrie
endured?the answer is no.in the original it is strongly implied that
Carrie was a victim through much of her life.Rachel,on the other hand
is largely simply ignored for much of her life.for a brief moment in
time,Rachel becomes a victim of a cruel prank.Rachel of course also has
the ability to move objects with her mind.she exacts revenge on her
tormentors in a spectacular fashion.there are some gruesome scenes
here,lowering this film to a slasher flick towards the end.however,the
ending of this movie is not anti climatic,as was the original.instead
it almost suffers from overkill.but is it as good as or comparable to
the original? for me,almost. 3/5

2.0 out of 5 stars NOTHING BUT A ROUTINE UPDATE OF THE ORIGINAL July 12 2004
Format:DVD
YEARS AFTER THE EVENTS IN ''CARRIE'', ANOTHER BULLIED GIRL [EMILY BERGL] UNLEASHES HER TELEKINETHIC POWERS AGAINST HER FELLOW HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS WHO PICK ON HER ALL THE TIME. HAS SOME GOOD ACTING, BUT NOW THEY'VE TAKEN THE CARRIE STORY AND TURNED IT INTO YOUR AVERAGE MODERN-DAY TEENAGE HORROR FLICK. THEY COULD'VE DONE BETTER THAN THIS. FANS OF THE ORIGINAL FILM WILL MOST LIKELY BE DISSAPOINTED WITH THIS SEQUEL.

1.0 out of 5 stars Where has all the talent gone? April 26 2004
Format:DVD
I am absolutely amazed at the number of people who think this garbage is on a par (and some say, even better!) with the original Brian DePalma/Sissy Spacek version. All I can say is this: If the reviewers who say they like this rank piece of !@#$% are truly the leaders of tomorrow, then we are in deep, deep trouble. To compare this "director" and "actress" (I cringe even as I use the words) to the brilliant DePalma and Spacek is sacrilegious. Don't hold your breath waiting for Emily Bergl to ever be nominated for an Oscar, much less win it! Any money that this movie makes, and if it made more than $100 there is no justice in the world, is directly attributable to the brilliant original. I can't say that I'm surprised at the total lack of acting, directing, suspense, and intrigue that this movie has in spades, but I am very disappointed in Amy Irving attaching herself to this drivel just for the paycheck. This is a very disturbing trend in movies...this mentality that apparently exists with producers to slap together directors who can't direct, actors who can't act, screenwriters unapologetically virtually plagiarizing the original and calling it a new and better effort. God help us all!!!
