WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Based on the characters created by Stephen King, The Rage: Carrie 2 takes us to Bates High School and a cruel prank-playing group of oversexed jocks. But the jokes on them when they try to humiliate outcast Rachel Lang (Bergl), because the telekinetic powers that puzzle and frighten even her, come boiling to the surface with a vengeance.
