Ginger Snaps (2000) Review:

A very innovative film that may appear as a usual werewolf movie at first, but that really is not. Ginger Snaps is, in fact, a great psychological horror drama that approaches adolescence related problems and puberty using the werewolf transformation as a metaphor. Everything is here, from first periods to the first kiss and sex experience, to trying drug, party, etc.

The characters of Fitzgerald sisters are really intriguing and not the usual dumb teens for once. The acting of both girls is excellent! I also really enjoyed the parents (whose acting is very good too), who are totally out of step with their daughters. The movie really successfully depicts communication problems between teens and parents.

The only drawback of this movie, if I may cite one, is really the action scenes, which are not so well done and could push the viewer to laugh at times, but this not really the point of the movie anyway. Ginger Snaps is a very clever movie that I recommend to anyone that has once been a teen, or currently is (which makes it an awful lot of people!).
