The Rage: Carrie 2 is a 1999 horror movie and is a sequel to the 1976 film Carrie which is based on the novel of the same name by Stephen King. The movie is directed by Katt Shea and stars Emily Bergl as the lead character Rachel Lang. The movie also stars Jason London and Dylan Bruno. Rachel Lang is a high school student who possesses telekinetic powers, but she is not aware of it until she gets angry. She is an introvert who struggles to fit in with her peers and is bullied by her classmates. In the opening scene, her best friend is driven to commit suicide after being humiliated at a party by a group of boys who had a bet to sleep with her. Rachel is devastated by her friend's death and starts to have strange dreams about her friend's sexual encounter with the boys.

Rachel's life takes a dramatic turn when she starts to see the ghost of her dead friend and realizes that she has the same telekinetic powers as Carrie White, the protagonist of the first film. Rachel also discovers that she is the daughter of Margaret White, the woman who was responsible for driving Carrie White to her fatal prom night rampage. Margaret had given Rachel up for adoption, and Rachel has been living with a foster family ever since.

As Rachel discovers her powers, she starts to use them to get revenge on the boys who wronged her best friend. Rachel's targets are the football players at her school who made the bet to sleep with her friend. She uses her powers to move objects and scare them. Rachel also starts to date one of the football players, Jesse Ryan, played by Jason London. Jesse is one of the few people who are kind to Rachel, and she starts to develop feelings for him. However, Rachel's ghostly visions of her friend's death and her desire for revenge start to consume her.

Meanwhile, the school authorities become aware of Rachel's powers and try to intervene. They bring in a psychologist, Dr. Susan Snell, played by Amy Irving, who was the only survivor of the prom night massacre in the first film. Dr. Snell tries to counsel Rachel and help her control her powers. However, Rachel's desire for revenge becomes stronger, and she decides to use her powers to carry out a deadly plan.

The movie has a similar plot to the first film but is set in the modern-day and deals with contemporary issues such as bullying, sex, and teenage suicide. The movie also has a subplot about Rachel's mother and her Christian fundamentalist beliefs that contribute to the plot's themes of religious fanaticism and repression.

The Rage: Carrie 2 received mixed reviews upon its release but has since gained a cult following. Emily Bergl's performance as Rachel was praised by critics, and the movie's telekinetic special effects were also well received. The movie's theme song "Fascination Street" by The Cure remains a popular favorite among fans.

In conclusion, The Rage: Carrie 2 is a well-executed horror movie that pays homage to the original while also introducing its own themes and characters. It has its own unique identity and is a compelling watch for fans of the horror genre.

The Rage: Carrie 2 is a 1999 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 44 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.8 and a MetaScore of 42.
