“This isn’t just a good horror movie, it’s a good movie. Period.” – Time Out
Fifteen-year-old Brigitte Fitzgerald (Emily Perkins, Insomnia, Juno) and her nearly-sixteen-year-old sister Ginger (Katharine Isabelle, Freddy vs. Jason, See No Evil 2) are both best friends and outcasts. Obsessed with dying and bound by a childhood pact to stay together forever, they loathe their mind-numbing existence in the suburbs of Bailey Downs. One night the two girls are heading through the woods when Ginger is savagely attacked by a wild creature.
Ginger’s horrible wounds miraculously heal over, but something is not quite right about her. Ginger is irritable and in denial. But to Brigitte, it is obvious that a terrifying force has taken hold of her sister. She’s convinced that the insatiable craving her sister is experiencing can mean only one thing – Ginger is becoming something unspeakably evil and monstrous.
Also starring Mimi Rogers (Penny Dreadful), Kris Lemche (Final Destination 3) and Jesse Moss (Tucker & Dale vs. Evil), this riveting funfest was directed by John Fawcett (Orphan Black) and written by Karen Walton (Orphan Black).
Why We Love It
"As an unabashed fan, John Fawcett's Ginger Snaps is wildly entertaining with enough brains and gore to amuse a wide audience…The Blu-ray comes with strong picture quality and an excellent audio presentation. With a good and healthy assortment of supplements, the overall package makes a great addition to the cult library, and neophytes will want to give it rent." - M. Enois Duarte, High Def Digest
"Darkly funny, with strong performances and exciting terror, Ginger Snaps is the rare werewolf horror film that actually works…The director and his cast clearly appreciate the horror genre, and fans shouldn't be disappointed by Ginger Snaps. Shout! Factory grants the film its Blu-ray debut, with a good technical presentation and numerous supplements. Highly Recommended." – William Harrison, DVD Talk
"Matched with an impressive amount of worthwhile special features, a nearly perfect video and audio presentation, Scream Factory’s Ginger Snaps Collector’s Edition Dual Blu-Ray/DVD combo is the definitive release, a great buy for even the most casual of Ginger Snaps fans." – Joe Yanick, Diabolique Magazine
"The new Blu-ray from Scream Factory includes a new hour-long making-of and retrospective documentary which is very illuminating, a half hour roundtable discussion between four female horror writers and filmmakers about the correlation between girls becoming women and horror, deleted scenes, and commentary by both the director and the writer. Overall, it’s a great package for a solid horror flick." – Shawn Savage, Liberal Dead
