I have stayed up many nights watching many cult and sci-fi films hoping that I would find a half decent one. Ginger snaps is a film that I can relate to, being an unusual, rebellious teenager who is constantly being victimised and picked on by the entire studant body. Watching this film reminded me of myself and the situations I had been put it.
Ginger and her sister Bridget are two sisters who are obsessed with death and make film projects on the topic for school, their parents, to put it blankly are useless. Their father is too scared to take action against their rebellious bad ways an dtheir mother believes that children must learn from their mistakes, meaning that she lets them do whatever they want.
Ginger is attacked by a werewolf on the first night of her period, leaving Bridget to help fend off the beast and get Ginger home. Ginger becomes infected and starts growing a tail in, hair, fangs and she starts to kill people and animals. Ginger is extremely confident, whereas her younger sister Bridget lacks it greatly. Bridget would love to be her sister and will do anything for her, even die.
Sam a drug dealer falls for bridget and helps her find a 'cure' for Ginger. Sam and Bridget never get to reveal their feelings for each other as things with Ginger get out of hand when she becomes a full werewolf.
There is plenty of black humour mixed with violent events mostly perpertrated by Ginger herself and the script is very well written.
All in all this is one of the best movies I have ever seen in my life! and the music for the film is mysterious and gothic! and totally BRILLIANT
buy this movie!
