Firstly how the heck to you do a sequel to "Carrie"? The answer is have an entirely different girl who happens to have the same powers. Of course this new girl with powers (who's name is Rachel...how can you call this Carrie 2 again?) her best friend kills herself, then of course the Jocks pick on her at a party. This pushes her over the edge to similar result, oh and by the way the link is that she is Carrie's half-sister...huh? It's very teeny boppery in it's issues and it's not nearly as powerful or sympathetic as the original tale. It's actually quite safe to say there is very little that I did like about this, but at least I didn't hate it right?
