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.
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
Criminally underrated and under appreciated, Quite possibly the best teen horror movie of the 90’s and the most unique/creative werewolf movie ever made
Really enjoyed this movie!!
Been wanting to watch this for years, finally did and was not disappointed! Great flick.
I love this movie so much! I can’t believe it took me so long to watch!
When this came out, I skipped it, writing it off as yet another overly self-aware product of the Buffy/teen horror era. After finally watching it, I must say, it absolutely deserves its place in the cult horror canon. The writing is clever without being obnoxiously so, the lead actors are fantastic (Mimi Rogers as the clueless mom is too great), and it also delivers some solid gore and practical effects. Great little flick, highly recommended, as a jaded horror fan. Also,I'd love to see Joe Bob Briggs cover this on The Last Drive-in.
