Synopsis


Ginger Snaps
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. ~ Rebecca Flint Marx, Rovi

    A True Cult Classic

    I'm happy that this bonafide classic comes home in all its HD glory and that we have a great company like Scream Factory to show these films some love in converting them to Blu-Ray quality. Watching this film, there are so many times that this could have slipped into Twilight territory, even its premise raised and eyebrow. However, the tone, performances, execution, and metaphor not only knock it out of the park, but shows what that teen wank franchise could've been if it respected the genre. While true, An American Werewolf in London is heralded as the definitive werewolf film, there have been international films on the indie scene such as Ginger Snaps and Dog Soldiers to fill that void. This films sees great performances from Katherine Isabelle (a scream queen in her own right) and Emily Perkins as outsiders in high school. Their interest in death was a particularly unique addition to their characters' depth. I don't want to give too much away about this, but it is a solid film that present the werewolf tropes as a thought provoking allegory for puberty. I would wholeheartedly recommend this film and I am happy it's made it's way to the HD market.

    Scream Factory Does Ginger Snaps Justice

    For a long time, the only way to see Ginger Snaps in the US was to watch a pan-and-scan DVD or to import the Canadian disc. Scream Factory has finally done this cult werewolf film justice by giving Ginger Snaps the "Collector's Edition" treatment. Not only are all of the extras from the Canadian disc onboard, they've included a new retrospective documentary and a horror roundtable, plus the film in high definition for the first time. The picture might not blow away fans expecting the latest blockbuster, but it does justice to Ginger Snaps' low budget roots. Highly recommended.

    Surprisingly Good

    Though it is a low budget Canadian horror film, Ginger Snaps is surprisingly good. This film has good acting from relative unknowns and great writing. The plot itself seems typical at first, but if you pay attention you will most likely notice things that most other horror movies don't have. Definitely worth watching if you want to try a horror movie with something original to offer.

    I love this movie, and would recommend it to any horror fan. But who cares what I say, watch the movie and judge for yourself, because not everyone has the exact same taste.
