Movie Info

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

Keeps most cliches at bay.

A worthy sequel to a cut-above horror movie.

If Ginger Snaps II: Unleashed feels a bit scattered and the humour self-congratulatory, at least the performances never flag.

Dreadful. Absolutely inappropriate for kids.

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

May 1, 2004 Full Review Source:

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.

March 27, 2004 Full Review Source:

Ginger Snaps Unleashed could be picked apart by the fussy viewer, but that would be disingenuous considering what is achieved with so little cash.

March 3, 2004 Full Review Source:

Ginger Snaps II: Unleashed features the same witty, honest dialogue as the original, with improved music, make-up and werewolf effects.

February 17, 2004 Full Review

[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.

February 15, 2004 Full Review

An engrossing, well-performed thriller that falters somewhat in suspense and originality.

February 2, 2004 Full Review Source:

...the creature effects have been improved here, which are fairly convincing this time around (rather than resembling a burly guy in a furry suit).

A well-paced horror whose slick, exhilarating action sequences are a significant improvement over the original.

February 1, 2004 Full Review Source: eye WEEKLY

Perkins and Maslany are terrific together.

Jam! Movies

Has lots of well-wrought tension, plenty of (sick) humour and wonderfully staged gory stuff.

An incredible sequel and definitely a much better film, story and performance.

These characters are stunning and this is what sequels should be like, better than the last!

This one is going in my favorites.

A really cool follow up that is better than the first! It?s like Girl Interrupted but good! The twist at the end is brilliant!

This is the only sequel I have seen that could be considered an improvement on its original.

I'm a great Fan of Ginger Snaps and was really excited about this film when i first heard about it, unfortunately when it arrived at the cinema I was to young to see it. I'm sure its always a gamble for people and film fans alike to buy movies on Tapoe/DVD with out viewing them first and for me this was a first. It was well worth the risk of my cash as I loved the film, the casting was especially good this time around ( the DVD showing the auditions in all their glory ) As far as the films go Emily Perkins takes her original part and runs with it, totally convincing the audience that she is trying to break away from her sister and the ghosts of the past.

The special effects and make up are of course grander this time around which enhances the horror side of things, but I my self view this more as a Drama that a Horror film. The suspense is really edgy and makes you want to fast forward to the next scene to see what happens next. As well as the stand allow story of Briditte's new company 'Ghost' making you want more as the plot continues. Even as a sequel this is a hard one to beat. I whole heartedly will you to see it, even if you have not yet view the first one.

    1. Ginger Fitzgerald: Remember that game we used to play when we were little? The one where we would make ourselves hold our breath until we passed out? Then you'd always get scared and call Mom and I'd get in trouble? That game really sucked.
