The first sequel to the critically acclaimed Canadian horror film Ginger Snaps finds Katharine Isabelle and Emily Perkins returning to their roles under the direction of first-time feature filmmaker Brett Sullivan, who received a Genie Award nomination for his editing work on the first film. Released directly to DVD in the United States after a theatrical run in Canada, Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed finds Brigitte terrorizing a drug-rehab clinic when she's denied the serum that curbs her wolf-like tendencies. The film is presented in widescreen with the English soundtrack mastered in Dolby Digital Stereo. English and Spanish subtitles are available as well. Along with the film itself, the disc provides viewers with several bonuses, not the least of which is a feature-length audio commentary track. For an even more in-depth look at the making of the film, there is behind-the-scenes footage, a featurette focusing on the makeup department's task of transforming the actors into blood-thirsty beasts, and a collection of original storyboards. Last but not least, several deleted scenes are included, rounding out a nicely loaded package.

Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed
The feminist horror film genre might not have very many prominent entries, but the critically acclaimed 2000 film Ginger Snaps was just that. A darkly humorous chiller that drew parallels between menstruation and a werewolf curse, the John Fawcett picture garnered several Canadian Genie Award nominations and a loyal cult following. Four years later, Brett Sullivan, the film's editor, made his feature directorial debut with this sequel, Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed. Katharine Isabelle and Emily Perkins reprise their roles from the first film as sisters Ginger and Brigitte, respectively. This time around, Brigitte is found by the police after being attacked and taken to rehab when it's assumed that the wolfbane serum that keeps her from turning into a monster is a narcotic. Once inside the facility and denied the substance, Brigitte must strike deals with one of the orderlies to obtain it; meanwhile, she is pursued by another werewolf, and escapes with Ghost, another female patient, to that girl's vacant old house, which sets the stage for a brutal showdown -- made even nastier when the orderly, a hospital doctor, and the elderly Barbara show up and decide to intervene. Also starring Tatiana Maslany, Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed was followed only a few months later by Ginger Snaps Back. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

    Ginger Snaps Rocks


    I absolutely adore the Ginger Snaps series; its very demented and an absoulte must for any werewolf fans. The first I'd have to say is my absoulte favorite, but the second one is very good as well. The taller girl on the cover is actually not in the second one, she just plays more of a memory for the sister; which was a little disappointing for me. Overall, it's an excellent movie and I would recommend the whole trilogy to anyone who loves blood and gore!

    Worthy Sequel

    It is always hard to make a sequel to a classic but this movie comes close. The story picks up from the original. It is slow in some spots but not enough to take you out of the movie. It has a great ending that I wish would have continued in number 3 but number 3 was a prequel. This is a worthy sequel to a modern classic

    Good conclusion to the story but had to watch the movie a few times to figure out who was after her from the original movie.
