Product Description

Amazon.ca

Like Carrie before it, Ginger Snaps uses horror-movie conventions as an inspired metaphor for puberty. When beautiful but reclusive goth teenager Ginger (Katharine Isabelle) is attacked by a monstrous wolf on the eve of her first period, her body starts changing in a big way, as do her suddenly lusty, feral appetites. Director John Fawcett masterfully balances the expectations of teen horror exploitation (blood, bodies, sex, smart dialogue, and good old-fashioned monster-movie scares) with clever black humor and tender sisterly solidarity. Only devoted sister Brigitte (gloomy Emily Perkins) knows the truth, and even as Ginger's abrupt transformation threatens their once unbreakable friendship, bonds of blood and love keep them together: Brigitte disposes of Ginger's victims while searching for a cure. Mimi Rogers costars as their dotty but unexpectedly sensitive mom, ready to sacrifice all to protect her daughter. Blood and blood ties have never been more evocative. --Sean Axmaker

Format: DVD
Gingersnaps is one of the most original and savvy horror movies of the genre. The story centers around two teenagers, sisters who represent opposites on the spectrum of physical beauty. They aren't interested in boys or the shallow social life of their local high school. Sexual harassment and peer hazing are endured with wry boredom by our heroes. These girls are jaded--partly by the lack of meaning in their lives and by the superficial values of adolescence that judge them by their appearance and ability to fit in. They play out their lack of interest in life by their fascination with filming one another in elaborate death scenes. Everything changes when one of the sisters becomes a werewolf.

"Gingersnaps" is brilliantly filmed in bleak suburbia by Canadian John Fawcett (director of Taken, and Queer as Folk), and co-written by Fawcett and Karen Walton. The actresses are superb; Emily Perkins and Katharine Isabelle are perfect as misfit teenagers.

This hip underground horror film is substantial entertainment. It succeeds as a good quality werewolf film and it provides pithy cultural observations.

I remember coming across this DVD a few years ago in the horror section and thinking that it was just another teen movie. I later found out that it was a werewolf movie, which is one of my preferred themes in horror (there aren't that many good ones out there) and I therefore ended up watching it. IT BLEW ME AWAY!!! This is a great movie with all the right elements: great story, great effects, a lot of blood for those who like gore and good acting. If you're a fan of horror and especially werewolves, DO NOT miss this movie.
If you decide to buy the movie instead of renting it, buy the special collector's (Canadian) edition. It includes a lot of extra features that are not available on the regular edition. Ginger Snaps II is also available on DVD and is just as great as this movie. Ginger Snaps III (aka Ginger Snaps Back or Ginger Snaps: The Beginning) is being released on DVD in Canada in August 2004 and in US in September.

"Ginger Snaps" A Howling Good Time

"Ginger Snaps" takes the old cautionary tale of Little Red Riding and turns it on its furry ear. Instead of Lon Chaney Jr. howling at the moon and chasing poor unsuspecting girls through the woods - enter the Fitzgerald sisters, Ginger and Brigitte (Katharine Isabelle and Emily Perkins) two slightly morbid, teenage sisters entering puberty who are about to experience "the curse," and put a whole new humorous lycanthropic spin on the phrase "that time of month." Ginger has "the bite" put on her by a werewolf while walking through the woods with her sister. She then begins to experience "the change" much to the horror of her younger sister Brigitte. Ginger begins experiencing cramps, ill temper, hair in strange places, and a new found "taste" for boys much to the horror of Brigitte who must hide her sister's secret, clean up the mess, and find a way to help end the terrible curse before Ginger "snaps" again!

"Ginger Snaps" is a horror at it's best. The film benefits greatly by a strong cast, particularly Perkins and Isabelle as the Fitzgerald sisters, Kris Lemche as a dope dealing, knight in shining armor/love interest, and Mimi Rogers - who is a real hoot playing a well meaning but ineffectual "Beaver Cleaver" house mom trying to help her teenage daughters deal with the trials of puberty.

Though Karen Walton and John Fawcett's script was written tongue in cheek - the film has many genuinely horrific moments. There is more than enough blood, gore and entrails here to keep any bonafide horror fan happy. That being said, because this Canadian film production had a tight budget, it relies primarily on acting, atmosphere and suspense building to deliver the scares - probably a plus rather than a minus.

Format: DVD
I saw part 2 sitting in the rental section and laughed and thought it was going to be a horrible movie, so I didn't pick it up...even though I love B movies. But I came to Amazon to look at some customer reviews of part 1 and part 2. To my surprise there were great reviews of the movies. So..I said to hell with it and bought this movie from Amazon. A few days later it shows up and I throw it in the DVD player and me and 4 of my buddies started to watch it. All of us got a kick out of this movie (even though we didn't like the ending that much). The beatdown on the school field was classic to us guys and we had to rewind it twice to watch it..lol. This aint your typical Werewolf movie, which is a good thing! If you are a fan of renting those movies that aren't block buster hits...'B' movies...then you owe it to yourself to pick this movie up. I'm 100% satisfied I bought it and now I'm waiting on part 2 to show up in the mail!

Format: DVD
couple of sisters with vivid imagination are misunderstood. One gets bit by a "you know what" and the fun begins. Naturedly this is mistaken for a different type of change in life.

All the elements are there:

Caring (haven't got a clue) parents.

Blond with nasty attitude antagonist.

Drug dealer that does werewolf studies on the side.

Lots of neighbors with tasty pets.

Occasional gratuitous sex scene (the camera breaks away before the sweaty parts.)

You get the idea.

Will a cure be found and they all live happily ever after or is it curtains for the victims(s)?

The movie does have its unique way of mixing the standard elements to come out with the average "nipper" story. The only social redeeming value is the sisters' fidelity.
