Ginger Snaps

Directed by John Fawcett

svg-play Trailer

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.

Two outcast sisters must deal with the tragic consequences when one of them is bitten by a werewolf.

Cast: Emily Perkins, Katharine Isabelle, Kris Lemche

Loved this movie! A generally rad trilogy, too. I wish deeply it had a happier ending, but so it goes. What do you expect from horror? A lot of fun camp, and good acting from kids.

Really well paced Movie. As a practical effects and SFX makeup girly I love that the characters themselves are into FX makeup. I like the commentary on the struggles of high school girls and the unhealthy stereotypes thrown at them. The wardrobe department was great. I also understand that Emily Perkins (Bridgette) shaved her head prior to the production, but they definitely could have done way better with her wig (It did distract me sometimes). The makeup for gingers transformation is great and very unique. I could tell they were trying to push for a new werewolf look, which I respect. It worked out for the most part, but I think the werewolf puppet and suit fell flat. They didn't have much texture, were a bit shiny, and didn't have much shading so they looked a bit rubbery and flat.

i can see why this is such a cult film, and why people were happy to have a good werewolf movie 3 years after the train-wreck that was an american werewolf in paris. Also the fine folks who made this clearly paid attention in school when talking about an american werewolf in london, and how to make them look good sans HORRID CGI. Lets start with the actress who made this film wonderful. As Ginger we have Katharine Isabelle who 3 years after this would star alongside freddy and jason, and have a nice movie career. onto her sister Bridgette if you cast your minds back 10 years from the release of this, and you'd see her as a young beverly marsh in IT, and also have a nice movie career. Their mom would eventually be in penny dreadful, and for me i loved sam. why you may ask ? well 6 years later he'd try his best to cheat death, and fail in final destination 3. Solid film to start off the 2000's, but i can't quite remember if it's part 2 or the 3rd movie that was a tire fire.

Canadian Cult Classic Creature Feature! This is very much a coming of age story disguised as one hell of a low budget horror film. I mean this as no insult. "Low budget" and "bad" are not synonymous in my book. It's horrifying, bloody, and actually very emotional.
