What made the original Ginger Snaps a classic horror movie is the way it used the genre to explore universal themes. It offered a unique take on sibling rivalry, death, suicide, puberty, feminism, sexuality and love. Most poignantly, it gave us Ginger, a complex character with a genuine hatred of herself and everything around her.<br/><br/>Ginger Snaps also introduced Katharine Isabelle and Emily Perkins, two talented, beautiful and utterly believable actresses. So while I was a bit put off by the premise of Ginger Snaps Back, I was excited for the chance to watch the girls reprise their roles.<br/><br/>Ginger Snaps Back is a very watchable movie. It re-imagines the sisters in a different era, which is interesting. It&#39;s creepy. The special effects are much better than in the original. The climax is very cool. And the sisters are both perfectly portrayed. Unfortunately, when it was over, I wasn&#39;t thinking about my own mortality. I was just thinking, &quot;Hey, cool werewolves.&quot;<br/><br/>I was also irritated by the dialog. Most of the time, the characters speak in stilted sentences appropriate to the era. But occasionally, Ginger drops a pithy one liner or a curse word which seems completely out of place.<br/><br/>The supporting cast was filled with stereotypes. The harsh minister and the sage native American hunter were especially flat.<br/><br/>Ginger Snaps Back gives you two things. An entertaining werewolf movie. And an excuse to watch two talented actresses portray Ginger and Brigitte. But it doesn&#39;t give you anything beyond that.

This prequel concerns the sisters, Ginger and Brigitte, making their way through 19th century Canada in what one can assume to be a previous incarnation. <br/><br/>Having lost their parents, the orphaned girls trek alone through the wilderness during a cold, harsh winter. They stumble upon the remains of an Indian village, which looks to have been ripped apart by some great beast. One of the few survivors, an old wise woman, warns them that they must &quot;kill the boy&quot; or &quot;one sister will kill the other.&quot; When Brigitte accidentally steps into a bear trap a short time later, the two girls are rescued and assisted by a handsome Indian man known only as The Hunter, who leads the girls to nearby Bailey Fort...perhaps the very fort around which the future suburban community of Bailey Downs will spring. The fort is in poor shape. The men are suspicious, the atmosphere is bleak and the supplies are running low. It seems that the men who were sent for winter provisions several months before never returned...at least, not in human form. Indeed, several strange and vicious beasts seem to be stalking the woods just beyond the fort...and there may be one within as well!<br/><br/>This 3rd installment in the imaginative and intelligent Ginger Snaps series lacks the black humor and witty script of the previous two. The girls are lovely and convincing, the setting of a snowbound fort is both creepy and beautiful, and the new character of The Hunter is intriguing and nice to look at, but this film takes itself far too seriously. I also had a hard time accepting the fact that a young girl in the 19th century would utter a phrase like: &quot;These people are f-cked.&quot; Such instances of modern dialogue inserted into a setting of 100+ years past is disconcerting at best...but maybe I&#39;m the only one it would bother. <br/><br/>The beasts are highly visible in the final scenes of the film, and are pretty impressive looking. Other than that, the films gets a little weighted down by the gloomy atmosphere, with nary a joke to be found. The religious metaphors and Native American mysticism seem to have been pulled right out of &quot;The Crucible,&quot; &quot;The Scarlet Letter&quot; and &quot;Thunderheart&quot; and seem to have been used for set dressing rather than as crucial plot devices. Still, there&#39;s a good amount of blood and gore to please most splatter enthusiasts, and an open ending which seems both to resolve the second film and bring us right back around to the first. <br/><br/>It&#39;s not a terrible movie by any means, but since I&#39;d come to expect a certain amount of smart black comedy and found none here, it was just a little disappointing. The girls do a great job with their characters, as they always do, but they had far less to work with this time around. I give this a 6 on a scale of 10, whereas the first two each get a 9.

Neither sequel has been nearly as good as the original, but considering how brilliant &quot;Ginger Snaps&quot; was, no one could reasonably expect that. Actually, my main disappointment with both sequels is that I wanted what GS had--horror, humor, hipness, irony. But anytime there&#39;s a sequel that tries to be the original, it fails because it tried to emulate the first installment. Both sequels have completely different story lines and character. The only real continuity is in the characterization and the themes. And that&#39;s a brilliant decision. I probably liked &quot;The Beginning&quot; better than &quot;Unleashed,&quot; but I just finished watching the former, so I can&#39;t be objective. It is, in its own right, a really terrific film. All of the films have had their fair share of visual panache, but this one is so beautiful it reminded me of &quot;Sleepy Hollow&quot; at times. I almost wish they&#39;d been released under completely different titles--I can&#39;t help but compare the sequels to the original, and they&#39;re not really sequels. They all feature the same two leading actress; they&#39;re all about werewolves; &quot;Unleashed&quot; even picks up after the first left off. But you could watch &quot;Unleashed&quot; without having seen &quot;Ginger Snaps&quot; and still know what&#39;s going on, and since the third starts close to 200 years before the first, you obviously don&#39;t have to see the others. They&#39;re separate films connected by actresses and themes, as I see it. Speaking of the actresses--Emily Perkins and Isabelle Katherine are, of course, beyond reproach. Their direction is wrong; they don&#39;t fit in to the milieu they&#39;re put in, but I think that&#39;s a director error. Or the director&#39;s way of maintaining the integrity of the characters we know from the first two movies. Ginger and Bridget can&#39;t exactly be Puritans, can they? Next to the drop-dead brilliant score Mike Shields composed for the original, this soundtrack doesn&#39;t stand a chance. But it works very, very well with the setting and the action. I had to watch one scene towards the end (the fire) twice only because of the music. One thing I absolutely loved, though found a bit campy--Ginger spends half the movie dressed as Little Red Riding Hood, though her hood, and the rest of her clothes, are black...It makes for some stunning cinematography, though. So basically, after &quot;Ginger Snaps,&quot; it&#39;s a bit of a letdown. But not taking the original into account, it&#39;s an incredible film that you shouldn&#39;t miss.
