Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning
"Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning" (2004) is the third of the "Ginger Snaps" werewolf film.This is different to the previous two films because it's set during the early 19th Century. It's directed by Grant Harvey and stars Katherine Isbelle and Emily Perkins.
Two sisters, Ginger and Brigitte, are wandering through the forest and both are riding on a horse, until they encounter a ghostly old woman in red. She's not really a ghost but a seer that warns Ginger and Brigitte. The horse panics and bolts away, and the sisters try to catch up, then Brigitte is caught in a bear trap. Ginger returns to the old woman and asks for help, while a hunter and scout frees Brigitte. He takes Brigitte and Ginger to a fort enclosed by a large wall, used by traders, where they encounter men who are on the verge of starvation because their food supplies will run out. Tensions are high, and there is a secret hidden inside a room in the fort that the sisters discover. It's also a place where they keep werewolves out, but something has happened to Ginger. And she can smell blood.
This particular movie is dreary and melancholic, compared to the previous two movies, as one can sense the vulnerability of the sisters and the fear they have towards the men, not at the werewolves.
I rate this film 4/10
Coolest part: Leeches
