Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning Review


Good
The final leg of the Ginger Snaps series takes us back in time 150 years, where the presumed progenitors of Ginger and Brigitte are found in the Canadian frontier. Oddly, they still sound like valley girls. Anyway, there's a werewolf bite, Ginger gets snappy again, and, well, you know the drill as the body count rises. A mega-prequel is an interesting way to finish things off, but the film is too brooding and comparatively actionless to merit much interest.

Ginger Snaps Review


Very Good
In the Canadian coming-of-age teen horror film Ginger Snaps, we get a rousing account of what it's like when a girl literally cries wolf. Director John Fawcett helms this cleverly ghoulish werewolf suspense piece into a bouncy, writhing examination of a complex young girl's sudden awakening. Fawcett manages to present a refreshing macabre scenario that mixes emerging youth-oriented sexuality within the confines of a spry scarefest.

The film is very reminiscent of Carrie, where its protagonist has to deal with the uncontrollable changes of her body and soul as a cruel and unforgiving world bears witness to the unexplainable metamorphosis taking place. Fawcett's flick is also a snappy combination of An American Werewolf in London and Clueless. Intelligent and keenly wry, Ginger Snaps is a vibrant showcase that puts a bite into the imagination of its spellbound audience.

Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed Review


OK
Not nearly as much fun as the original Ginger Snaps, this sequel has Ginger's siter Brigitte (Emily Perkins) on the run from a similar fate at the hands of the local werewolf (and turning into one herself).

Brigitte shoots up with wolvesbane to ward off "the curse," but eventually she's apprehended and thrown into rehab, suspected of being a junkie. They take away the wolvesbane, and all hell breaks loose. Before long, she's escaped with the aid of a mousy resident named Ghost (Tatiana Maslany), as they try to outrun the werewolf on their tail.
