and refusing to give them to him.
There's a nice discussion between Jesse and Tracy Campbell after making out in
a vehicle with him being
distracted on thinking about the suicide
and her acting sneakily
stuck up about it all but very cool. It
was a real look on a total highschool
bitch the way it was done. We have a nice moment on Jesse acting disgusted when she
tries to hint to him for a date at an
upcoming grad party too with him speeding
away afterwards as this moment looked very clear that he didn't like
We have good shots on a dog walking

good shots on the two of them which was
touching and emotionally sad.
We spot a perfect jumping moment towards
the end that involved with Jesse and
Rachel but you will have to find out for
Bottom line is that I was soo excited
that a sequel arose to my all time
favourite horror flick showing a half
sister of Carrie White. Although this
girl was an outsider as well she was
sociable and had a couple of friends in
which Carrie never had.
The movie was a wee bit cheesy though
trying to make it look like today's
society and sometimes it does the trick
but this sequel was nowhere near as
effective to the 1976 classic
blockbuster. Again, sequels never are.
Alot of people put this one down but I
liked it although the story was nowhere
as strong as the first one.
We still have mean kids at school and
lots of them as it does look realistic on
jock's trying to get their jollies and
seeing how many points they's score with
any chick which looked like real
perverted idiots at school.
We showed some good flashback scene's to
the original Carrie
which really spiced things up and it was
awesome spotting the burned down school
ground since the tragedy at the 1976 prom
night. I mean that was total class.
During a humiliation at a party I loved
hearing the Margaret White chant
"They're All Gonna Laugh At
You" just like in the original flick
after the pigs blood was dumped on Carrie
at the prom. It just leaves you exciting
Some neat effects when Rachel used her
powers showing more types of magical
elements than in the first flicks showing
her tattoo's growing and all making it
look real horror like. It was a shame
what happens to a reoccurring character
but I won't spoil it for you. It's a shame we never find out who Ralph
White is though as I was hoping someday
we'd see him and his history too.
The acting was
quite good as lead actress Emily
Bergl (Rachel Lang) does her job well as Carrie's
half sister and knew how to behave
outgoing as an outsider at her school and
brought on alot of charm as well as her
outrageous attitude when something bad
happens and does well freaking
out holding her dog in the middle of the road
crying after her pet was run over which was a nice example. She shows good dark expressions
too for when the moment was necessary.
She does well acting tough to top it off.
Jason London (Jesse Ryan) played the nice jock
boy next door kinda fellow like he did in Dazed & Confused so
he proved that he can do it for this one
as well. He sure did his part strongly
and showed some different moments too at
times. He made his part believeable by
having an intelligent and descent
attitude not feeling he belongs with the
preppy jock crowd.
Amy Irving (Sue Snell) does her job wonderfully
by reprising her role this
time as an adult instead of a teenage
graduate. She has a great calmness to her
part in the film and is great with her
speaking too. Does well acting insisting
towards an onscreen sheriff on taking legal action to a
student on stagetory rape in which it
looked powerfully performed. Also a good shocked reaction on her in her office after a coffee mug slips off her desk. She hasn't lost her touch
at all since her work in the original.
Just more mature like.
J. Smith Cameron (Barbara Lang) seemed to do well
by acting disturbed and pulls her weight
well as a crazy one in the flick. She
brought the part across like she was
supposed to with her icy words and
cringing attitude too.
Dylan Bruno (Mark Bing) played the perfect head
jock bully football player and had a nice
rough look to prove himself too. He spoke
roughly to top it off which was a plus.
He really brought his sleazy attitude to
life and proved to be a good character
actor as he usually played these types of
roles in other shows too.
Zachary Ty Brown (Erick Stark) wasn't a great
actor I found but he knew how to act like
a bratty troublemaker in the flick and
looked right as he seemed like a prick.
He doesn't prove at all that he couldn't
move on to film acting after his fame in
TV's Home Improvement though. Still he was someone you'd love
to hate and want to punch out. Shows a good shocked expression on his face in a scene when someone shows a picture to him.
Charlotte Ayanna (Tracy Campbell) had the nice girl
looks and knew how to be a troublemaking
stuck up snobby cheerleader in the flick.
She certainly had that bitch with an
attitude type of appeal which reminds you
of those popular girls you went to school
with who would snub you. She was great by
acting full of herself too which looked
totally realistic too.
Emily Bergl doesn't
expose herself but there is a tiny bit of
brief nudity with her and Jason
Lisa crashes into a car
when she jumps off the school building
and lots of blood is shown.
There was more gore in this
than the first one when Rachel unleashes
A head is cut off
Sue Snell is stabbed in the head by a
spear which was disappointing as she
Somone's crotch is stabbed
A girls eyes are stabbed
Many teens are stabbed in the head by
The theme song for the
opening was the best score I've ever
heard in a sequel as we hear a chiming
song play and then some low keyboard
sounds with some chantings too. It will
give you goosebumps and was fantastic. Danny
B. Harvey sure was original and can
be influential. In other areas of the
film we hear the odd piano playing as
well as some bonging sounds for tragic
moments in the film. Plus some good wind
effects for the suicidal moment. There's
also great booming sounds which almost
makes you jump especially during the
flashback scene's. There's some good
romantic piano playing too with the main
Kelton: Sue, are you sure you aren't

thing, Elvis was her date and they

You know, Tracy isn't universally loved.
She tried to steal Brad from me. She's a

Is that all I was to you, Jesse? Thirty
