Ginger Snaps

In Theatre : January 01, 2000
Director(s): John Fawcett

In the generic Canadian suburb of Bailey Downs live Ginger (Katharine Isabelle) and Brigitte (Emily Perkins), 15-year-old sisters committed to introversion, menstruation anxiety, and terminal misanthropy. Three years late for their first period, they spend their time staging gruesome death scenes for their own amusement, amidst the willful ignorance of their relentlessly perky mother (Mimi Rogers).

On the night Ginger finally gets her period, the sisters are attacked in the woods by a ferocious creature that may have some connection to "The Beast of Bailey Downs," a predator currently disemboweling its way through the local dog population.

The girls survive the attack, and Ginger's wounds heal quickly, but her attitude grows even more bizarre, as hair sprouts from her scars and a tail grows from her spine. Adding to the terror, she starts dating boys. A panicked Brigitte forces herself to befriend Sam (Kris Lemche), the high school pot supplier, whose brand of ganja may be the only cure for Ginger's troubling ailment.

Ginger Snaps Review by DrBlood

Ginger Snaps is quite simply the best Canadian horror movie ever made! Not only is it a refreshing change to the usual run-of-the-mill werewolf movies due to being from a teenage girl's perspective but arty-farties can e...

Ginger Snaps ***Out by sixteen or dead on the scene, but together forever*** The opening of the movie looks strange. It’s almost as if the town stop caring. Somethng awful is happening but it seems it has been ha...
Ginger Snaps (2000) Review by Gardenofstone10

From multiple members of this site, I was recommended Ginger Snaps.  I didn't know what it was about, though.  It's a werewolf film.  Those that know me know that I'm not really a big fan of werewolves wit...
Ginger Snaps Review by Vamp_Slayer

There was a time when, once in a while, decent and dare I say, good horror films were released straight to video. Most of the time (but not always) we get crap that is like Alien vs. Hunter (lame rip-offs), Pulse 2 (lame...
Ginger Snaps (2000) Review by BlackTequilaKiss

Ginger Snaps (2000) Review by Danielle1989

As Karen Walton said in the commentary, "There hasn't been a good werewolf movie since American Werewolf in London", and I couldn't agree more. It is seldom that someone can write a good werewolf film, and even more seld...

Ginger Snaps Review by Constantce

It’s a rare horror film that appeals to female interests.  For this, I love “Ginger Snaps.”  It stabbed me in the heart, but that knife twisted when it shone a light on the relationship betwee...
