The 50 Worst Movie Sequels of All Time

25. The Rage: Carrie 2 (1999)

Director: Katt Shea
Stars: Emily Bergl, Jason London, Amy Irving, Dylan Bruno, Zachary Ty Bryan, Rachel Blanchard, Eddie Kaye Thomas

Apparently, the team behind The Rage: Carrie 2 forgot that they were making a horror movie. More of an afterschool special than a scare-show, this worthless, 23-years-later sequel to Brian De Palma's masterful 1976 adaptation of Stephen King's novel Carrie is essentially the same exact movie, only with every ounce of tension drained from its core until the last ten minutes, which are admittedly badass.

But before we get to the high school outcast's telekinetic revenge against her cool-kid tormentors (which includes firepokers through craniums and CDs slicing peoples' throats), there's a whole lot of angsty nonsense and unnecessary flashbacks to the original flick that are used simply to draw a superfluous connection.

In a genre replete with dreadful remakes and gratuitous sequels, The Rage: Carrie 2 is one of the all-time worst. Which, if you think about it, is actually quite an accomplishment.
