Spacek declined the invitation to cameo in The Rage: Carrie 2, but allowed footage of her from Carrie (1976) to be used. The movie was a box office flop, only making back 17.8 million of it's 21 million dollar budget.
The film opens in Chamberlain, Maine. Chamberlain is the same town where Carrie (1976) was filmed. Barbara Lang paints a barrier in her living room to protect her daughter, Rachel, from the devil. Rachel had begun to show her telekinetic abilities. However, Barbara is sent to a mental institution for her schizophrenia.
Years later, Rachel is now a teenager. She is living with neglectful foster parents, Boyd and Emilyn, and her dog, Walter. Rachel and her best friend, Lisa Parker, go to Bates High School. Bates has been rebuilt after being destroyed during The Black Prom. Rachel and Lisa talk about how Lisa has recently lost her virginity to Eric Stark, who is on the football team. It is revealed that the football team have a game where they sleep with girls to gain points, meaning Eric never cared about Lisa, and only used her to gain points in this game. After being rejected by Eric, Lisa commits suicide, jumping off the roof of the school.
Upon finding out about Lisa's suicide, Rachel's strong emotions reignites her dormant telekinesis. While Rachel is outside of Bates, lockers open and bathroom stall doors close inside, a result of Rachel's newly rediscovered telekinetic abilities. Rachel goes to Sue Snell, now Bates High School's guidance counselor, for support after Lisa's death. Meanwhile, Sheriff Kelton is investigating Lisa's suicide, and finds evidence of the "game" the football team plays. He also discovers that when they slept together, Lisa was sixteen while Eric was eighteen. Rachel finds a photograph of Lisa and Eric making out, and gives it to Sheriff Kelton for evidence. With this newfound evidence of Lisa and Eric's relationship, Sheriff Kelton looks into charging Eric with statutory rape.
Eric is suspended from school due to his potential rape charges. Eric and another member of the football team, Mark Bing, learn that Rachel is the person who submitted the photograph of Eric and Lisa for evidence. They try to intimidate Rachel into not testifying against him, but she uses her telekinesis to throw them off and escape when her foster parents arrive. Walter, Rachel's dog, is hit by a car and she flags down Jesse Ryan, a member of the football team, for help. They take Walter to an animal hospital, and then go out for coffee to get to know each other better.
Sue meets with Rachel, and, upon finding out about Rachel's telekinesis, takes her to the site of the old Bates High School. There, Sue tells her about Carrie White, and the events of the prom night where she was the victim of a malicious prank. Sue tries to tell her that she and Carrie are half-sisters, sharing the same father, Ralph White. In Carrie (1976), it is mentioned that Ralph ran away from his pregnant wife, Margaret White, with another woman. Rachel refuses to accept the truth about her biological family, and runs away from Sue. Later, Rachel runs into to Jesse, who tries to get Rachel to go on a date with him. Rachel refuses until he convinces her that he didn't know anything about the "game" the rest of the football team plays, and was not involved with it. Seeing Rachel and Jesse spend time together angers Tracy Campbell, head cheerleader and Jesse's ex-girlfriend.The Senior D.A. of Chamberlain covers up Eric's statutory rape charges, and the football team's "game", due to the political influence of the team members' families. Eric, Mark, and some of the other members of the football team decide to humiliate Rachel as revenge for submitting the photo of Eric and Lisa in for evidence. They get help from Tracy and the rest of the cheerleaders. Tracy hopes that if she humiliates Rachel, Jesse will dump her and get back together with Tracy. In the meantime Sue finds out, that Rachel has telekinesis and knows, that she is suffering, because of Lisa´s death and her mother being put in an asylum. She goes to her to investigate further and finds out through Rachel´s mother that Rachel´s father was Carrie White´s father Ralph White. She also knows about the boys' actions and is worried about the possibility of another "Black Prom", so she brings her to the ruins of the original high school to make Rachel understand, what is going on with her and how this might end. She tries to convince Rachel to get help with her telekinesis by going to a corresponding institution by telling her about Carrie´s fate. Rachel refuses out of fear of being locked away. After having won the decisive football game, that gives football team members the possibility of going to the University, they want to celebrate it
with a party at Mark Bing´s house. There the football team and cheerleaders set Rachel up after she gained their trust. They separate Rachel from Jesse and then they disclose their evil game and the connection to Lisa´s suicide. They also lead her to believe, that Jesse was part was part of it, too making her believe, that Jesse slept with her for that reason. The terrible humiliation and the lack of respect to her dead friend´s life pushes Rachel to over the edge and she locks everyone inside the home and begins killing the ones who wronged her. Deborah is killed by tting impaled by various CDs and Brad is stabbed in the head, along with Sue, who goes to the party with Rachel´s mother. Barbara reunites with Rachel, but rejects her saying, that "The Devil" is inside her.
Later Jesse comes with Tracy, who tried in vain to seduce him in the meantime. She kills her and confronts Jesse. She realizes, he did not have anything to do with the prank and saves him from being killed by the burning house. She dies via getting crushed by the ceiling.
