Scream Factory Presents: CARRIE & The RAGE: CARRIE 2 On Blu-ray April 14!

Carrie-Double FeatureThis is going to be an exciting revisiting experiment.  Like most others, I was not a fan of the pointless snoozefest that was the 2013 remake of Carrie.  Now is the time to go back and see if the other two post-De Palma Carrie efforts were any better.  Scream Factory is putting out a Double Feature of the late Scream-era sequel The Rage: Carrie 2 and the mini-series based on the book as well (also called Carrie).  I’ve seen both, but I’ve also seen a lot of movies and other things since then.  My old man memory is foggy.  While I remember being disappointed with both, I’m really interested to see if I can see them A) in a different light and B) see if they’re better than the misguided retread we had a few years ago.  Below are the details (including NEW bonus features) for the Blu-ray that comes out April 14th!

Carrie Double Feature MEDGet ready for a double dose of telekinesis terror! Scream Factory presents Carrie & The Rage: Carrie 2 on Blu-ray on April 14, 2015, with bonus features that include new audio commentaries with Carrie director David Carson and The Rage: Carrie 2 director Katt Shea and director of photography Donald Morgan.

CARRIE

Angela Bettis (May) stars in this 2002 adaptation of Stephen King’s classic tale of horror and retribution, featuring eye-popping special effects and a shocking, all-new twist ending! Carrie White (Bettis) is a lonely, awkward teenage girl who just doesn’t fit in. At school, she endures her classmates’ constant ridicule, and at home she suffers endless psychological torture at the hands of her fanatically religious mother (Patricia Clarkson,Six Feet Under). But Carrie has a secret. She’s been cursed with the terrifying power of telekinesis. And when her tormenters commit an act of unforgivably cruel humiliation at the prom, they’ll soon learn a deadly lesson. Taking its inspiration from King’s book rather than the original film, Carrie was written by Bryan Fuller (TV’s Hannibal, Pushing Daisies) and stars Emilie de Ravin (Lost), Katharine Isabelle (See No Evil 2, Ginger Snaps) and Chelan Simmons (Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil).

 

THE RAGE: CARRIE 2

In this horrifying 1999 sequel to Brian DePalma’s 1976 classic, Rachel (Emily Bergl, The Knick) is a high school misfit who gets caught in the middle of a vicious prank orchestrated by a group of jocks that turns deadly. Once the police bring one of the boys in for questioning, his teammates target Rachel for squealing, and hatch a devious scheme to publicly humiliate her. But messing with Rachel is worse than playing with fire, for when her temper’s crossed, it triggers a powder-keg of anger and unleashes horrifying powers that turn a wild teen house party into a wilder mad-house inferno! Also starring Jason London (Dazed And Confused), Rachel Blanchard (TV’s Clueless), Mena Suvari (American Beauty) and Amy Irving (reprising her role as Sue Snell from Brian DePalma’s original Carrie), this fast-paced, white-knuckle revenge fantasy takes telekinesis to the next level of terror!
