''The Rage: Carrie 2'' is a 1999 {{horror}} film that serves as a direct sequel to ''Film/{{Carrie 1976}}'', starring Emily Bergl, Jason London and Mena Suvari.

A teen outcast named Rachel Lang sees her best friend Lisa kill herself after a JerkJock has sex with her in order to score points in a "game" he's playing with the rest of the team ([[RippedFromTheHeadlines based on a real event]], unfortunately). Rachel seeks revenge against the football players that caused her friend's suicide, and along the way, learns that she possesses psychic powers. She develops a crush on Jesse, one of the smarter football players, and the two enter a relationship, much to the ire of Jesse's teammates, who start plotting against Rachel. Meanwhile, the school's guidance counsellor, Sue Snell (a survivor from the original film), finds out about Rachel's powers, and steps in to help her, fearing a repeat of what had happened before. The entire situation comes to a head at the after-party for a football game, where a tape is played of Rachel and Jesse having sex. [[BerserkButton It does not]] [[KillEmAll end well]].

This film was part of the post-''Film/{{Scream 1996}}'' wave of hip, [[{{Postmodernism}} post-modern]] teen horror films, and was [[DolledUpInstallment originally planned as a standalone film]] titled ''The Curse''. Some fans of the original film regard it as [[{{Sequelitis}} a stain on its legacy]], although others feel that it's SoBadItsGood, and still others feel that it's a worthy film in its own right. You make up your own mind.

!!This film has examples of the following tropes:

* AbusiveParents: While not as bad as [[HolierThanThou Margaret White]], Rachel's foster parents are very neglectful, and the father has no problem hitting her. In an early scene, it's strongly implied that the only reason they raise her is to [[MoneyDearBoy get $300 per month]] from the foster care system.
* AlphaBitch: Most of the female characters, save Rachel and Lisa -- and the latter's death opens the film.
* ArtifactTitle: Guess who actually isn't in this movie outside of flashbacks.
* AssholeVictims: Just about all the teens Rachel targets.
* BlondGuysAreEvil: Eric, who is the reason Lisa commits suicide.
