Ginger Snaps II (2004) Review:

Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed is praised by many as a great if the not better sequel to the first one. I found it the opposite, a lame continuation of the first story which, apart from a brilliant ending, is quite lengthy and with not much happening.

The story is the logical continuation of the first Ginger Snaps. As in the prequel, Brigitte (Emily Perkins) is absolutely great in it (in a disgusting way as usual). However, the absence of the other Fitzgerald sister, not including her lame apparition as a hallucination, makes it a lot less interesting. A great compensation is made however with the character of Ghost, who keeps surprising throughout all movie.

Improving upon the original, Ginger Snaps: Unleashed is a frightful and disturbing supernatural thriller. After the death of her sister Brigitte goes on the run and attempts to manage her lycanthropy through drugs, but when social services put her into a rehab center her transformation into a werewolf rapidly increases.

Emily Perkins gives a really strong performance that does a good job of selling the desperation of her situation. Additionally, the werewolf effects are fairly well-done and rather terrifying. Still, there are some script problems and the characters are underdeveloped. But despite its failings, Ginger Snaps: Unleased is a compelling horror film.

Aside from the ending, the movie really doesn’t deliver and seems rather long for not much. Since many love this sequel, I would still recommend to the reader to try for themselves.
