Watch Ginger Snaps
- 1 hr 48 min
This Canadian horror film is the story of two teenage sisters, Brigitte (Emily Perkins) and Ginger (Katharine Isabelle) who are obsessed with death. After Ginger is attached by a mysterious paranormal creature, she begins to undergo a strange metamorphosis. She's not only grown hair and a tail, but begins heading out at night to commit murder. Brigitte strives to protect her sister even after she becomes a werewolf, frantically searching for a cure while trying to combat Ginger's urges. The film is often lauded for its portrayal of strong female characters. While the movie had difficulty with marketing and audience as it was in production so shortly after the Columbine school shootings, in the years since it has become a cult classic. It also received mostly favorable reviews from critics and spawned both a sequel, Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed, and a prequel, Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning, both of which went straight to DVD.
