Directed by John Fawcett
Two death-obsessed sisters, outcasts in their suburban neighborhood, must deal with the tragic consequences when one of them is bitten by a deadly werewolf. Morbid and singular in their small town, Brigitte and Ginger vow to live and die together, but when Ginger is attacked by a werewolf, she grows detached from her sister and embraces a vicious new lifestyle. Written by Karen Walton and directed by ORPHAN BLACK creator John Fawcett, GINGER SNAPS packs dark, affecting themes of family, feminism and oncoming womanhood into a grisly creature feature. A favorite upon release, GINGER SNAPS only grows more ferocious with age, as it takes its rightful place as one of our great werewolf stories. Contains strong language, violence and gore.

dark comedy mixed with gothic tragedy mixed with puberty related body horror with werewolves. doesn't get better than this.
Iconic. A perfect blend of puberty and spooky ooky.
Early 2000s gave me nostalgia, but even without nostalgia goggles on, the film holds up very well. I enjoyed it. Great Halloween werewolf movie.
Ive seen parts of this movie a few times as a kid, but I never really sat down and watched it, especially as an Adult. I can say that it held up nicely over the years and still made me cringe at certain parts. (In a good horror way lol) There was much more blood than i remember! Great movie over all.
