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

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

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!!!

I feel exactly how Rachel feels in this film. I've thought for a while that the front cover of this DVD was so cool, and I finally decided to buy it on DVD. The little insert inside has an even cooler front cover!!!
This movie hit a chord with me, although none of my friends killed themselves over a guy, or got filmed having sex. But I recognised a few people in it - the loner, the jocks who aren't old enough to grow stubble, the popular girls ... So many.
The film really starts when Mena Suvari's character kills herself, and this sets off a chain reaction of events. (Look out for Finch, if you want to see another American Pie character!) The thing I hated about that, is the prinicipal (played by Amy Irving, Sue Snell from the original - and she's so unrecognisable!) tells the school that there will be a moment's silence. Excuse me, someone's just committed suicide, don't you think the school should CLOSE?!
When Rachel has a telekinetic episode, what is seen through her eyes is black & white, making you notice it more, and has a similar significance to the red in Sixth Sense.
I thought Emily Bergl (Rachel) played the character brilliantly, and even had a certain quality about her - she totally reminded me of Sissy Spacek in the original. Someone's been studying the original! The way she moved, her eyes ...
True, the original is a classic, and always will be considered a classic, but this matches it perfectly. I really enjoyed it. I think if you hadn't seen the original, it would still be good. The finale is better than the finale in the original (I NEED to get that on DVD next). Lots of people (mainly the guys, and anyone with glasses) will be wincing during the ending. The thorns seemingly growing over Rachel's body at the end is a very cool effect.

First of all the original carrie is and always will be a classic. it is one of my favorite movies. why they decided to make a sequel is beyond me but they did. of course sequels hardly ever live up to the original and this one doesnt. BUt I'll tell you what its alot better then a lot of crap being made nowadys like i know what you did last summer and scream.
this sequel has an outcast named rachel played decently by enily bergl. she falls for one of the nice jocks in school played by jason london. only the school counselor played by amy irving(returning from the original) knows rachel has telekenesis and knows that her temper is going to get ugly. and her temper does get ugly at a party when a cruel joke gets played on her. and she gets her revenge. from flying killer cd's to a fire poker she gets her vengeance. I have to say i did not like wht happened to amy irving but i wont rveal what happens. if youve seen the movie you know what happens. believ me i was pretty shocked. and of course the ending is a bit stupid but thats what you get in a sequel. do yourself a favor and watch the original instead.
