  1. It's possible to insult even a teenager's intelligence.

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

    It's just a standard, mediocre horror flick that wants to be taken seriously. The creators missed the point entirely: even teenagers know that there's no audience for this type of film anymore.
  4. 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.
  5. Only reason to watch this: the grisly reward Irving receives for being in this picture.
  6. 20
    A truly dreadful sequel.
  7. 20
    Toils in high school hell and doesn't even manage to come up with one good shock.

    Bottom Line: Irrelevant to the classic, a good one for even Carrie fans to skip.

It brought a new spin from the original while still maintaining the essence of a revenge movie. Both films were very enjoyable and I got what I asked for in a sequel, a lot of the same with a new coat of paint. If you loved the first one and are hoping for something completely different you will be disappointed. Full Review »
