Blu-ray Review: Carrie (2002) / The Rage: Carrie 2

16 April 2015 9:17 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Could anyone have guessed when Stephen King published his first novel Carrie in 1974 that it would spawn no fewer than four big screen adaptations? Brian De Palma’s 1976 version remains the first and best, but each subsequent filmmaker who comes at the material seeks to find something new and unexplored in King’s book. Of the two remakes and one sequel released in the last 16 years, only one movie has succeeded in being different enough to justify its own existence. It’s The Rage: Carrie 2, and it’s being packaged with the 2002 made-for-tv remake on a new double feature Blu-ray from Scream Factory.

By now you already know the story of Carrie White, a shy and awkward teenage girl raised by a religious zealot mother and possessing some major telekinetic abilities. When some kids at school decide play a big, bloody prank on her the prom, Carrie retaliates with »

Bluray Review: Carrie (2002)/The Rage: Carrie 2 (1999) Double Feature

12 April 2015 5:39 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Scream Factory gives a double dose of telekinetic angst and revenge with the double feature of 2002’s Bryan Fuller (TV’s Hannibal)-scripted TV adaption of Carrie and 1999’s The Rage: Carrie 2, which is a sequel to the original 1976 film version of Stephen King’s novel. Done scratching your heads in confusion? We took a look at the double feature, and the big question of whether or not to pass or purchase this one might be on your mind, but unless you’re a hardcore fan of one or both films, you might want to opt out of this one in exchange for Sf’s Class Of 1984 or The Babadook releases (also coming out on 4/14)

Taking more of a cue from the source material of King’s novel and not the De Palma film, 2002’s Carrie suffers a bit from a few different things, most notably the »

Carrie (2002) / The Rage: Carrie 2 Blu-ray Double Feature Release Details Revealed

25 February 2015 1:36 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Sometimes, high school can be a virtual hell. Mileage varies by the individual, of course, but in a place where acceptance at a lunch table can be akin to finding an oasis in a desert, there's more weight on the shoulders of many teens than just their backpack straps. Such is the case for Ewen High School student Carrie White, the telekinetic titular character of Stephen King's seminal debut novel published in 1974.

Carrie has been adapted for the screen multiple times for multiple generations, and Scream Factory is giving the Generation Y versions a high-definition upgrade, with their Carrie and The Rage: Carrie 2 double feature Blu-ray now set to hit shelves with an official release date and bonus features, including two new audio commentaries.

Get A Double Dose of Carrie When Scream Factory Releases Carrie/The Rage: Carrie 2 To Bluray This April!!

25 February 2015 12:08 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Don’t we all love us some telekinetic teenage angst? The gang over at Scream Factory certainly do, and are set unleash a double dose of Carrie White onto Bluray, when the double feature of 2002’s Angela Bettis-led Carrie adaption and Kat Shea’s 1999 Carrie sequel, The Rage: Carrie 2 hits shelves on April 14th. While last year saw yet another adaption of Stephen King’s classic novel, the 2002 version was a lot closer to the source material and though nothing will top Brian De Palma’s 1976 Carrie, the Bettis-led version is quite entertaining. Plus, with scenes like seeing one of the kids from Home Improvement getting his balls impaled in The Rage: Carrie 2, what’s not to like about that one?
