The Rage: Carrie 2 (1999)
From writer/director Eli Craig (Tucker & Dale vs. Evil); Adam Scott (Big Little Lies, Parks & Rec) and Evangeline Lilly (Ant-Man, Lost) star in this offbeat comedy about love, family, and the Antichrist. Gary has just married the love of his life, Samantha, and is now the stepfather to her quirky 5 year old son, Lucas (Owen Atlas). But he soon finds himself in increasingly odd situations around the child, which drives him to believe his new stepson may actually be the spawn of Satan.
Also starring in the movie are Donald Faison, Bridget Everett, and Chris D'Elia. The movie was produced by Jason Michael Berman,
Know how I know De Palma’s Carrie is a brilliant adaptation and one of the best horror movies ever made? Because other filmmakers have tried adapting it three other times across three other decades: Katt Shea in 1999 (with The Rage: Carrie 2, basically a Carrie remake and the best of the lot), David Carson for SyFy in 2002 and, most recently, Kimberly Pierce in 2013. None of them come close to touching the 1976 original.

Of course, some ’90s titles were always secretly good; they only needed some time to find their audience.
Well guys and girls, it’s finally here. The day Marty, Doc and Jennifer arrive in “the future”. The day Biff steals the time machine and goes back to 1955 to create an alternate 1985 by giving his younger self the Greys Sports Almanac that tells him every sports result from now (then) until the year 2000 only for Marty and Doc to go back to 1955 – the same day that 1955 Doc is trying to send the other 1985 Marty back to 1985 – to steal back the Almanac and burn it to re-align the time line.
It’s a brilliant film, isn’t it?
We are now officially in the future. And after today, everything in Back to the Future takes place in the past. There is no more future for that franchise. Crazy, right?

First, what technically counts as a reboot? One school would say that anytime the cast shuffles, it’s a reboot, meaning we’re now on the second reboot (and third iteration) of Spider-Man films.

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
When it comes to fresh, exciting and smart horror, Jennifer Kent’s feature debut is one that easily lives up the hype it gathered throughout festivals and an impressive theatrical run in 2014.

Amelia (AFI Award winner Essie Davis, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, The Slap) is a single mother plagued by the violent death of her husband.
What makes Class Of 1984 so entertaining, is not only its entertainment value, but also how dead on the film was about the condition of schools and events that would eventually become a reality. Telling the tale of Perry King’s Andy Norris character, an idealistic teacher still in love with teaching music to students, the film starts on Andy’s first day as a teacher at Lincoln High.
