    Does what good horror movies do: It taps into the baser emotions. show more

    The original was a Midol moment, this is a Prozac exercise. [12 March 1999, Life, p.8E] show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    The original "Carrie'' worked because it was a skillful teenage drama grafted onto a horror ending. Also, of course, because De Palma and his star, Sissy Spacek, made the story convincing. The Rage: Carrie 2 is more like a shadow. show more

    I have never been a fan of the original Carrie, but, despite the different slant offered by The Rage, there's not enough new material here for me to like the sequel any better. show more

    The sequel is about nothing more profound than an awkward teenager's desire for a really cute boyfriend. [12 March 1999, Friday, p.N] show more

    Walter Addiego San Francisco Examiner

    Maybe there's a real use for Carrie 2 after all. Stand it up against the original, and you have a pretty good lesson in what's happened to the movies in the last couple of decades. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    It's not a cheap rip-off -- it's a credible sequel to a horror classic, and a sad reminder that some things never change. show more

    Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle

    Toils in high school hell and doesn't even manage to come up with one good shock. show more
