Hey, Toronto! Spend Your Halloween Being Bitten By GINGER SNAPS!
Two Goth-influenced sisters have their boring suburban lives disrupted when the eldest and more rebellious, Ginger (Katharine Isabelle), is bitten by a werewolf shortly before she gets her first period. As Ginger's bloodlust rises along with her libido, her sister Brigitte (Emily Perkins) does her best to help her while also trying to look out for the safety of her oblivious parents, her potential boyfriend (the local dope dealer, the only other person sensitize enough to realize something's amiss), and the rest of the townspeople. Cleverly equating the onset of menstruation with the unleashing of an implacable feminine id, screenwriter Karen Walton (Orphan Black) and director John Fawcett's Ginger Snaps is both a celebration of female power, a critique of the dangers of conformity, and a smart, scary, straight-up horror film.
