Ginger snaps ( 2000)

Post by Mistress0fTheDamned »

Is becoming a woman analogous, in some deep psychological way, to becoming a werewolf? Ginger is 15, edgy, tough, and, with her younger sister, into staging and photographing scenes of death. They've made a pact about dying together. In early October, on the night she has her first period, which is also the night of a full moon, a werewolf bites Ginger. Within a few days, some serious changes happen to her body and her temperament. Her sister Brigitte, 15, tries to find a cure with the help of Sam, a local doper. As Brigitte races against the clock, Halloween and another full moon approach, Ginger gets scarier, and it isn't just local dogs that begin to die.

Director John Fawcett refused to have CGI effects in the film, opting for all of the special creature effects to be done with prosthetics and makeup.

This is become my favorite werewolf film. So much perfection.

I'm thinking I might make one to keep in the trunk of the car though. Might be nice to have hot water if I ever have to watch a Matthews compound for 3-4 days hoping to get the drop on Sergio Frenchi. - Neon Bolan

I hung out with the director of Ginger Snaps 2 a few years ago at FrightFest. He was a cool dude.

I was never a fan of these. I think I just don't like the actresses.
