Ginger Snaps (2000) has been on my list to watch for a long time and for some reason, I kept putting it off. First off, let me tell you, the acting is below Daytime TV, so don’t expect much in that area. But what is lacking there is made up with a storyline that was unexpected.
I figured this was going to be revenge horror, and I guess it was a little, but what it is so much more. If you haven’t seen Ginger Snaps, I’m gonna blow it for you, so if you don’t want it spoiled, skip to the next paragraph. OMG it’s werewolves, and not pretty sexy ones, well, she became a vamp turning her transformation, then all hell broke loose.
The special effects are very good for a low-budget movie, which in actuality in my opinion have better effects than the big-budget films because they aren’t fucked up with a ton of CGI. When they finally show the beast, I’m quite impressed and saddened that there wasn’t more to see, but that’s a norm for me with any monster movie, I want to see it more.
Ginger Snaps is a delight and you should check it out. I give it 3.5 out of 5 Stars.
