The Rage: Carrie 2



Although our site is very popular, the current economic climate has reduced our revenues just when we need extra security to prevent attacks from hackers who don't like what we do. If you think what we do is worthwhile, please donate or become a member.


Unlike the MPAA we do not assign one inscrutable rating based on age, but 3 objective ratings for SEX/NUDITY, VIOLENCE/GORE and PROFANITY on a scale of 0 to 10, from lowest to highest, depending on quantity and context.

1 to 10

MPAA Rating: R

The half-sister of Carrie White unleashes her telekinetic fury on a group of students who make her the butt of a cruel practical joke. With Emily Bergl, Amy Irving, Jason London, Zachery Ty Bryan, Mena Suvari, Charlotte Lopez, Dylan Bruno, Justin Urich and Rachel Blanchard. [1:44]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Lots of sexual innuendo. Kissing, often passionately. We see the sides of a nude boy and girl having intercourse with lots of movement (we see part of the girl's bare buttocks). We briefly see shadowy, clothed figures moving rhythmically in the back seat of a car. While a boy and girl kiss passionately, he unzips her dress and she removes his shirt; we later see them lying in bed, obviously nude but mostly covered by a sheet (we see the boy's chest and the girl's back). We see several boys' bare backsides. We see a woman in a slip, a girl with a towel wrapped around her torso, a girl in her bra and panties and a few girls wearing cleavage-revealing tops.

VIOLENCE/GORE 8 - A woman and a boy are pierced through the forehead with what looks like a fire stoker (we see a close-up of the woman's very bloody forehead). Lots of people are cut when plate-glass windows shatter; we see someone's head rolling across the floor, lots of blood splattered on the walls and floor, many bloody people (we see a girl spitting up blood) and many bloody corpses. In one scene, and several brief flashbacks, a girl jumps from the roof of a building and lands face-down on a car (through the windshield, we see her face hit and see blood pour from her mouth); in a dream sequence, we see lots of blood running down a car's cracked windshield then see a girl with blood all over her face and mouth. Several CDs pierce a woman's torso (we see lots of blood). A girl's eye glasses shatter and her eye sockets are very bloody. A girl shoots an arrow through a man's crotch (we see lots of blood). A boy shoots a girl in the hip and she falls into a swimming pool; the water turns red from her bloody wound. A girl pulls a boy into a swimming pool; he drowns after he's hit in the head and then trapped in the pool by an automatic pool cover. Several people catch on fire; we see one of them with a badly scarred arm in a later scene. A burning beam and a burning piece of a roof fall onto two girls. We see a dog run over by a car; it's badly injured but survives, and we see it wearing a cone around its neck in later scenes. A man slaps the back of a boy's head and a man slaps a woman. A man repeatedly pounds his head against a wall. A window slams shut on a boy's hand (we later see him with bandages on his hand). A boy is flung from a balcony onto a covered pool (he's not injured). Boys throw a brick through a window and people throw eggs into a crowd. We see a girl get doused with blood. A woman puts red paint on a girl's face; in a later scene it looks like blood. A girl has bloodstains on her shirt from holding an injured dog. A bloody hand grabs a woman's arm. A boy vomits.

PROFANITY 7 - About 12 F-words and F-word derivatives, lots of anatomical references (one is written), lots of scatological references and several mild obscenities and insults. [profanity glossary]

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Telekinesis, feeling alienated, popularity, promiscuity, suicide, mental illness, deception, revenge, alcohol use.

MESSAGE - Seeking revenge can be deadly.

Special Keywords: S5 - V8 - P7 - MPAAR

Our Ratings Explained

Become a Member

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
