The Kings of Horror #25: The Rage: Carrie 2 (1999)

Every day throughout the month of October, William “Bibbs” Bibbiani from The B-Movies Podcast and Ryan Turek from Shock Till You Drop are reviewing a different theatrically-released horror movie based on the works of Stephen King. Day 25 brings one of many reinterpretations of King’s first novel, Carrie, via Katt Shea’s The Rage: Carrie 2. Emily Bergl stars as a hip new telekinetic teenager for the female empowerment generation, out for revenge against the hunky jocks who take Mena Suvari’s virginity and drive her to suicide. Original Carrie co-star Amy Irving is back for some reason. And how is Carrie’s father, Ralph White?

Can The Rage: Carrie 2 survive the 1990s teen-driven horror movie glut and give women a kick-ass psychic hero for the 90s? Bibbs and Ryan have their doubts on Kings of Horror.

Come back every single day in October as Bibbs and Ryan review another theatrically-released film based on the acclaimed Stephen King’s novels, short stories and original screenplays on Kings of Horror! Follow your hosts on Twitter at @WilliamBibbiani@_RyanTurek and @STYDNews.
