Gingersnaps (2000 Motion International Film)


Are your teenage girls fascinated with gruesome death?  Do they like to take pictures of themselves committing suicide or being the victim of a hellacious murder?  Are they growing hair in weird spots and developing a bad attitude?  If so then then look no further!  We have the cure for those teenage angst blues!  Ginger Snaps is one of those movies that will make you suspicious of your little girls!  Or drive you insane.  Whichever comes first!

Made in 2000, Ginger Snaps focuses on the exploits of two teenage sisters who have a quirky interest in death and violence.  Then one day odd grisly murder’s start happening in the sleepy town of Baily Downs.  Even though the girls are obviously disturbed their doting mother (Mimi Rogers) makes sure they are well taken care of despite the fact that a werewolf had bitten one oldest daughter Ginger (played by the future legendary horror scream queen Katharine Isabelle) and must deal with high school problems during her change.  Her sister Brigitte seeks relentlessly for a cure for the lycanthropy but is futile as Ginger goes on a wild and ferocious rampage through town!

Ginger snaps (Get it?) and the tale turns bloody violent and makes you cringe in your seat as the halls of the school rain with blood and guts!  We hope you don’t loose your appetite for destruction as director John Fawcett takes you through this modern day classic of the occasional lycanthropy and it’s effects on the family unit.

So enjoy this PSA and remember, tell your girls not to pet strange dogs and try not to cut off that tail, it could get infected!
