The feminist horror film genre might not have very many prominent entries, but the critically acclaimed 2000 film Ginger Snaps was just that. A darkly humorous chiller that drew parallels between menstruation and a werewolf curse, the John Fawcett picture garnered several Canadian Genie Award nominations and a loyal cult following. Four years later, Brett Sullivan, the film's editor, made his feature directorial debut with this sequel, Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed. Katharine Isabelle and Emily

If Ginger Snaps II: Unleashed feels a bit scattered and the humour self-congratulatory, at least the performances never flag.
Driven by good performances especially from Perkins who exposes her pure acting ability.
First-time screenwriter Megan Martin avoids the trap of simply rehashing the first film with new characters, instead crafting a very dark fairy tale.
The sense of ironic humor and creeping dread of the original are mostly gone, and Ginger 2 ends up as a much more conventional horror/thriller
It's no DOG SOLDIERS, but it is one of the better Werewolf movies to come out recently. Don't let the ravings of a few fanboys overly-inflate your expectations, and enjoy.
Ginger Snaps Unleashed could be picked apart by the fussy viewer, but that would be disingenuous considering what is achieved with so little cash.
Ginger Snaps II: Unleashed features the same witty, honest dialogue as the original, with improved music, make-up and werewolf effects.
[It's] unlikely to be the flavour-of-the-week critic's pet that the original was, but it's a rare sequel that improves upon its predecessor in every respect.
An engrossing, well-performed thriller that falters somewhat in suspense and originality.
A well-paced horror whose slick, exhilarating action sequences are a significant improvement over the original.
Perkins and Maslany are terrific together.
Has lots of well-wrought tension, plenty of (sick) humour and wonderfully staged gory stuff.
