5.0 out of 5 stars Substantial entertainment!
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...

3.0 out of 5 stars Snappy acting
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...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Bet For Halloween Scares..., Oct. 2 2001
By 
This review is from: Ginger Snaps [Import] (DVD)
If you're looking for a movie with beautiful beautiful people fighting monsters with equally beautiful boy toys, you're looking at the wrong movie. If you want something with more substance, then check this movie out. As one poster noted, it really is a shame that this movie was so passed over. Guaranteed to be a cult classic, Ginger Snaps will scare the living daylights out of you, or at least make you squirm.
Ginger, one of the two main characters, gets bit by a not-so-friendly woodland creature and starts to change bit by bit into a werewolf, with her sister watching with horror and fascination.

4.0 out of 5 stars An antidote to the current teen-horror malaise., Sept. 25 2001
This review is from: Ginger Snaps [Import] (DVD)
What is it about Canada that produces genuinely unsettling, disturbing, non-cop-out horror films, from 'Black Christmas' to Cronenberg to this? In a clotted market of tired spoofs and increasingly desperate sensation-mongering, 'Ginger Snaps' is the real, slow-burning, mind-worrying, nerve-fraying thing. In its story of a teenage girl attacked in a nocturnal wood by a werewolf-type creature who begins developing animal characteristics and destructive tendencies, the mark of Cronenberg is evident: not just in the squelchy creature effects, but also in the interest in the various stages of metamorphosis, in the way the characters and the environment around her deals with the move from human to animal, and the way the modest house turns into a cavernous horror chamber in the protracted climax, blurring the lines between disgust and affect.
But this transformation is more familiar and mundane than an accidental meeting with a lycanthrope. Ginger is a moody 16 year old who is finally beginning 'the curse' - she changes from a childish dependence on her younger sister to the more adult world of sexual exploration and female body changes. Here the horror world belongs to Angela Carter and a film like 'The Company of Wolves', where body horror and the wrenching change from child to adult meet. But 'Ginger Snaps' is not merely a metaphor for menstruation - Ginger begins developing male characteristics, such as body hair and a tail, and this hermaphroditic trauma is part of the film's originality.
'Snaps' may be ultimately conservative, locating destructive change in a world of indifferent or silly parents, creativity-crushing teachers, drug-taking or (unprotected) promiscuity. But this is a movie utterly faithful to the world-view of its outsider, brooding teen heroines. Although there is humour, it is not the smarmy character-audience complicity of most teen horror movies, but a mark of the privacy that keeps the viewer to an extent outside. From the opening sequence of a child playing with the bleeding lumps of a mutilated mutt, to the mock-up suicide friezes created by the sisters for art class, to the sickly, unfathomable mise-en-scene, making unexceptional suburbia seem like the most grisly place on earth, to the character of Beatrice, long, dark-robed Goth mistress, with forbidding fringe and intimidating lurch, who Never Smiles Once, 'Snaps' is a celebration of the weird, slightly creepy kids. Like us.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ginger Snaps-one of the most original wolf flicks in a while, Aug. 30 2001

This review is from: Ginger Snaps [Import] (DVD)
This was an excellent and thoroughly entertaining flick. Ginger's character is great, and so are the mixed themes of how Ginger begins to change in her "growing up" and becoming a woman, and also how she changes in the sense that she is now cursed. The themes in this movie will keep you interested all the way through. If you're up for a new and interesting twist on the wolf flick genre, this is great. The effects are exceptional. Don't expect to be scared, though. There are very few scenes that qualify as true horror. I'd call this more of a gory thriller, and certainly is a must see. The US version might cut out alot of that gore, though. Too bad. If you still need to be scared at a wolf flick, remember the original Howling will be out on DVD and you can always hunt down the out-of-print Company of Wolves. Now why don't they make that on DVD?

4.0 out of 5 stars Desiree's Ginger Snaps Review, July 31 2001
This review is from: Ginger Snaps [Import] (DVD)
This movie was definatly not your average horror film.I had many likes and dislikes like for one how Sam and Gingers sister found a warewolf cure so fast that startled me but the fact that I think Kris Lemche (Sam) is like the hottest guy on the planet made me like the movie more!I also thought Gingers parents were funny they shouldve been shown more.In this flim ther were an excellent cast they all played there parts so well. Especially Kris Lemche!We should see him more in the us!
