Ginger Snaps (2000) Review
Written 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 with the exception of a small handful of movies. This one isn't high on my list.
It starts off with a brutal depiction of a dead and dismembered dog. Maybe that's why I didn't like the movie. We go on to find out it was a werewolf and it attacks Ginger. Brigitte is her sister and basically protects Ginger through her transformation into a werewolf.
Of course, the turning into a werewolf is written off as....ready for it....PUBERTY haha. Oh how doctors must ALWAYS be right. Anyways the movie goes on to follow Gingers story. The end.
First off, what I didn't like about the movie......this is Clueless if Clueless was a horror movie. It's just your normal high school chick movie with some blood and gore. To that effect, it was quite dull and boring for me.
I did like the graphics and effects. The werewolf looked amazing. The setting and the music were a perfect match. This movie just didn't have enough all star elements for me to say I'm a fan and I will buy...because I am not and I will not.
The acting got quite annoying by the time the movie ended. This movie goes to show that being stupid gets you killed. Not as the victim, either. Peace.
