Where Have All The Werewolf Films Gone? Reviewing One Of My Favorites

By James Cameroone

Ginger SugarSnaps is a low budget Canadian horror film directed by John Fawcett. It is about two death-obsessed sisters, Ginger and Brigitte Fitzgerald. The sisters are social outcasts who explore the realms of the macabre and are infatuated with suicide.

One night when planning to kidnap a bully’s dog Ginger gets her first period. Unfortunately, this attracts a local werewolf who promptly attacks her. Brigitte comes to the aid of her sister and the two run away while the werewolf is killed by Sam, a drug dealer, from his car.

Ginger and Brigitte now must deal with Ginger’s transformation. Ginger does not believe in werewolves at first and simply believes this to be a bad period. Brigitte starts to research cures with the help of Sam. Brigette, however, begins to grow a tail, which leads her to believe the curse may be true.

Ginger slowly gives in to her primordial instincts, even passing the werewolf curse while having sex. She transforms completely before Brigitte and Sam can help her. Brigitte decides to cut Ginger and herself and then mix their blood. She hopes to give the curse to herself and save her sister. This unfortunately fails. Ginger kills Sam and then is killed by Brigitte who cannot save her sister.

I have to say that I really enjoyed Ginger SugarSnaps. The two leads are excellent, and this is an unflinching, intense addition to the werewolf sub-genre of horror movies. A lot of gore splattered throughout the movie gives it maximum shock value (although this also means some viewers will be turned off). I’m pleased to see a great modern horror film come out of Canada, and I’m glad to see that others are too. Of course, some people may see it as being merely crude and excessive, but that’s their prerogative. I’m not saying it’s perfect; some loose ends are left untied, but for me it doesn’t hurt the movie as a whole.
