Ginger Snaps (2000)
The relationship between emergent female sexual urges and horror/monsters is old ground here at the Other Side. This though is the first time I have tackled the link between it and the werewolf myths. We will see later how this plays out in "Jack and Diane", but tonight we have Ginger.
Ginger and her sister Brigette are the weird girls in school. Obsessed with death, dying and all that fun stuff and ignoring the in crowd when they can. That is till something not-quite a dog bites Ginger.
There is serious Buffy the Vampire Slayer vibe about this flick. Came out right around the same time to be honest, so that is no surprise.
The movie was not was I was suspecting and the ending was a surprise.
I enjoyed it to be honest, I am not a big fan of werewolf movies in general. The leads were great and I am going to look for them in other movies to see if they are as good as this in all flicks.
Tally: Watched 3, New 3
