Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed (2004) Review

Brett Sullivan directed Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed (2004) is a werewolf movie that won 3 movies awards and was nominated for 2 more. Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed had an estimated movie budget of CAD 3,500,000.


Ginger Snaps 2 takes place right after the first installment. During Ginger’s (Katharine Isabelle) rampage in the first movie, she killed her parents. So the movie is about how the other sister Brigitte (Emily Perkins) takes Ginger’s blood and introduces it into her own bloodstream. The sister ends up in a pretty crazy teen shelter. She goes through the whole movie dealing with her change.

The ending was pretty cool in the way how Brigitte goes through everything to try to save herself from her faith but just ends up as a waste of time. Why did she have to do that to herself? I thought this was a great ending for the series. The little girl in the movie rocks.

Ginger Snaps 2 is an above average werewolf but tries too hard to continue the story without the duo that made the Ginger Snaps (2000) so entertaining.
