Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning is a good film in its own right. The plot and characters are involving, the script is well written, the effects are not horrifc, the actors are great and the twist at the end makes the film. The other side to this film is that it lacks an extra dimension unless viewers watch Ginger Snaps and Ginger Snaps Unleashed. GSU is the better film of them all, but in order to love the films, you must watch them all, as the correlation between storylines is needed for the extra 'oomph'. Great film, has now become a cult trilogy. Let's hope they don't over do it and bring out another sequel.
