The Rage: Carrie 2 is the 1999 sequel to the 1976 horror film classic Carrie. Directed by Katt Shea, the film starred Emily Bergl, Mena Suvari, Jason London and Amy Irving, who appeared in the original film.

Plot

The film is set in a small town high school, where the members of the football team set the social order. Emulating the "Spur Posse" from Lakewood, Californiamarker, the boys on the team compete to see who can seduce the most girls, rating them on the point system, and then discarding them.

The story opens with Lisa (Mena Suvari), a victim of this game who responds by jumping off the school to her death. Lisa turns out to be the only friend of Rachel Lang (Emily Bergl), a intelligent outcast, Rachel lives with neglectful foster parents; her biological father was Ralph White but he had disappeared, and her mother has been institutionalized. Rachel plans to go after Lisa's victimizer, Eric Stark (Zachary Ty Bryan), but becomes attracted to the smart football player, Jesse Ryan (Jason London). While this forces the keepers of the social order to partially accept her, they secretly plan her downfall. But unknown to them, Rachel's recently arrived hormones have brought on something else - telekinesis. It appears to have been present in her past, such as when she was a little girl, slamming windows open and closed over and over again when her mom was taken away. However, the terrifying ability is suddenly triggered again by Lisa's suicide, which results in Rachel blowing open all of the lockers in the school in an instant.

The one person who recognizes what is happening is guidance counselor Sue Snell, the only survivor of the telekinetic massacre perpetrated by Carrie White at the senior prom. Sue wants Rachel to get the help she needs, but it is already too late, as the stage is set for another showdown, but this time it is at the football game's after-party, taking place at the mansion, one of Eric Stark's friends, Mark Bing (Dylan Bruno).

At the party, Rachel attempts to have a good time while Jesse's ex-girlfriend Tracy (Charlotte Ayanna) plots to steal him away, keeping him from the party. Rachel, after joyfully dancing with Mark and Chuck, is then humiliated by the other football players (Eric Stark, Mark Bing, Brad Winters, etc.) and their girlfriends (Monica, etc.), who playback a video recording of Rachel and Jesse having sex. They then reveal her point-score, and continue to mock her as pressure builds violently inside of her. The voice of Carrie's mother, Margaret White, chants "They're all gonna laugh at you!" as Rachel falls to the floor, humiliated. She snaps completely, and everyone is frightened as Rachel's tattoo of a heart surrounded by thorny vines, which she shared with her best-friend Lisa, begins spreading thorny vines across her body, tracing along her veins. The glass doors shatter, with shards of flying glass cutting and impaling people, decapitating one of the jocks and cutting another's neck, squirting blood at Deborah, blood from other party goers also sprays on the walls and furniture. Chaos ensues as Rachel seals off the house with her mind, standing rigid as everyone else runs in a panic. Rachel, in her state of fury, quickly kills off numerous party-goers, including one girl whose torso is riddled and sliced by airborne CDs, and another football jock who attempts to escape through the door, only to have a fire poker shoot through the air, through his head, and into the peephole. Sue, having managed to sneak Rachel's mother out of a mental institution, rushes to help Rachel at the party, but gets to the door in time to be impaled through the head by the same fire poker, on the other side of the door.

As everyone begins realizing that it is Rachel causing the mayhem, her powers cause all of the bottles of liquor in the bar of the mansion to explode, spilling the flammable alcohol everywhere. She then sends the flaming logs from the fire place flying across the room, smashing into the shelves of spilled alcohol, igniting the room in flames and setting many other guests on fire. As the guests scramble to escape, they spread the fire further.

Eric, Mark, and Monica rush to an arsenal in the mansion, grabbing three harpoon guns and a flare gun. They continue to run from Rachel as she stalks them through the house, until she finally catches up to them by the indoor pool, where the three of them are ready with their three harpoon guns raised. Rachel manipulates the weapons against them by first making Monica's eyeglasses explode against her eyes. Monica shrieks in agony as the shards blast inwards, digging into the flesh around her eyes and leaving her blind. In her panic, Monica accidentally shoots her harpoon gun into Eric's groin, castrating him with the harpoon. Both Monica and Eric, collapse to the ground to bleed to death. Rachel steps over Eric's body as she backs Mark into a corner, quickly sending his harpoon gun flying out of his hands. She is suddenly distracted by her mother Barbara, a distraction which Mark (the only one still standing) uses against her. He uses his flare gun to fire a flare at Rachel's hip, sending her toppling into the water. It did not stop her, as she reaches up out of the water and pulls him in with her before activating the tarp to automatically seal off the pool. Rachel then snatches a harpoon gun that had fallen into the water, and uses it to cut a slit in the tarp. Quickly crawling out, she then leaves Mark to drown.

As Rachel lays on the floor, she is again greeted by her mother, who comforts her at first, but only because she still sees Rachel as her little girl. When she suddenly sees Rachel as she is, with the thorny tattoo spread across her body, Barbara tells her daughter that the devil has taken over her, and quickly leaves Rachel lying on the floor. Rachel begins to pray for death.

Jesse and Tracy finally arrive at the party, horrified at the massacre. Rachel appears on the balcony above them, and sends a fiery piece of debris down on Tracy, killing her. Jesse is left to talk to Rachel, trying to convince her that he didn't have any part in humiliating her. At first, she refuses to believe him, loosening several screws on the flaming ceiling above him as he walks up onto the balcony with her. Rachel is finally convinced that Jesse is telling the truth after she hears the videotape replaying in the background where Jesse is saying "I love you" to her as she is sleeping. When Rachel realizes the truth, the ceiling above finally caves in due to the loosened bolts. Rachel manages to pull Jesse out of the way in time, but she becomes trapped as the flaming ceiling crushes her legs and torso, leaving her unable to move. With her last thoughts, she sends Jesse flying down on to the pool tarp in an attempt to get him out of the house and save him. She is then burned alive.

One year later, it is revealed that Jesse is taking care of Rachel's dog, and mourning her. He is suddenly greeted by an apparition of Rachel, who crawls through his window and kisses him, but shatters into several pieces, revealing it to be just a dream.

Production

Originally titled The Curse, the film was scheduled to start production in 1996 with Emily Bergl in the lead, however production stalled for two years. The plot heavily borrows from a real-life 1993 incident in which a group of high school jocks known as The Spur Posse were involved in a sex scandal. In 1998, the film finally went into production under the title "Carrie 2: Say You're Sorry". A few weeks into production, director Robert Mandel quit over creative differences and Katt Shea hurriedly took over the reins with less than a week to prepare to start filming, and two weeks' worth of footage to reshoot.

Amy Irving reprised the role of Sue Snell, which she originated in the first Carrie, though she was initially wary of taking the role and asked Brian DePalma, director of the original film, for his blessing. Director Shea was told that she would not be able to use footage of Sissy Spacek from the original Carrie, but she edited several scenes into the film and presented the film to Spacek, who granted permission for her likeness to be used.

Reaction

The film was panned by critics and flopped at the box office only grossing $17.7 million out of its $21 million dollar budget.
