A dark comedy with intriguing twists, Ginger Snaps is the story of two pre-pubescent teenage sisters Brigette and Ginger. Best friends and self-styled outcasts, the sisters loathe their dull suburban existence. On an expedition to the woods to play a prank on a classmate, however, Ginger is bitten by a savage wild animal. The mysterious attack causes an eerie transformation in the girl, gripping her with inexplicable blood-lust and violent hostility. Brigette and local bad-boy Sam struggle desperately to find a way to cure the otherworldly infection coursing through Ginger's veins. The sensation of the Toronto Film Festival 2000, and critically-acclaimed as a truly modern, intelligent thriller, Ginger Snaps is directed by John Fawcett (Boy’s Club) and stars Emily Perkins (X-Files), Katherine Isabel (Disturbing Behaviour), Kris Lemche (Existenz) and Mimi Rogers (Austin Powers).
