Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed Movie Review

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.

Sadly, that's kind of it. The sense of ironic humor and creeping dread of the original are mostly gone, and Ginger 2 ends up as a much more conventional horror/thriller, with cheap fright gags and straightforward gore. Katherine Isabelle, who made Ginger Snaps such a trip, appears here only as the occasional apparition, urging her sister to run faster and farther. I wanted to care about Ghost but never came around to it; by the end I wanted Brigitte to eat her.

The DVD includes 12 minutes of deleted scenes, among a few other minor extras.
