Product Description

Set in the 19th century, this prequel is the third in the sequence of gothic horror films starring Katharine Isabelle and Emily Perkins. The two orphaned sisters, Ginger (Isabelle) and Brigitte (Perkins), are making their way across a cold, harsh winter wilderness when they stumble upon the remains of a broken-down Indian outpost that has been the target of a series of savage attacks from werewolves, who have killed a substantial percentage of the community's population. After one of the few survivors, a wise old woman, issues them with an oblique and ominous warning, the young women are helped out by an enigmatic Indian man known only as 'The Hunter' - but it may already be too late for Ginger...

2.0 out of 5 stars A very strange prequel. 17 Nov 2013
By josh91
Ginger Snaps Back now takes place in the 19th century with the same fromulaic elements from the first one. An oddly paced film, the two actresses still do a decent job in portraying the ancestors of their characters from Ginger Snaps. The weakest of the trilogy, because A; a prequel was not necessary. B; a very unoriginal plot; and C; story development not that great. The thing what worked with the first film was it's uniqueness worked very well for having a teenage girl becoming a werewolf and using teen angst and puberty as innovative aspects of the film. The sequel could have been better by structuring the whole film a bit more maintained. Now with this one it was unnecessary to have a backstory, because there was no mention of it in Ginger Snaps and it is very formulaic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beware the red and the black 25 Mar 2005
By bernie VINE VOICE
Third time is the charm. This is the third movie "Ginger Snaps Back" in the ginger snaps series and in my opinion the best. The first "Ginger Snaps" of course always get the privilege of being unique as a different more caring wolfy sisters. The second "Ginger Snaps 2" however was nothing more than an exploitation film relying on the reputation of the first film.

They seem to have found more money for this prequel and took acting lessons as this film was beautiful and well organized. There were a few overdone "Blair Witch" type scenes but they did not distract form the over all feel. It was a bit darker but would have been impossible to make otherwise. You may also notice that they had to go out of their way to show the sisters periodically as the story and some of the other actors were acting rings around them.

During the early exploration of the continent (1815) a group of people built a fort on the edge of the known world. Through a series of misfortunes and events two sisters Bridget and Ginger are lead to the fort by a mysterious native. There they encounter some odd characters and something unspeakable howling outside the fort.

Is it safer inside or out side the fort?

What is seen in the future and must it come true?

Is the bond of sisters stronger than any adversity?

4.0 out of 5 stars Fighting to survive with it's siblings. 10 Dec 2005
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.
