Movie Review by BillyBob
December 13th, 2012

A METAPHOR FOR PUBERTY THAT SUCKED LIKE P.M.S.

Meet the utterly detestable Fitzgerald sisters - Ginger, a trashy, obnoxious, snot-nosed queen bee - And - Brigitte, a literal female version of Elmer Fudd (Duh!) in a bad wig.

Ginger and Brigitte (a callous, sickening, and unquestionably contemptible, teenage-duo, if you've ever met one) are supposed to be just a typical product of today's youth from suburban life in America.

Apparently there's a "werewolf" running around in the Fitzgerald's neighborhood. It has been attacking many of the neighbors' dogs. It doesn't eat these family pets. No. It just tears them to pieces and then (effectively) smears their blood all over as much territory as it possibly can.

In this shallow, predictable and completely insensitive, little Horror film (that covers just about every "fright flick" cliche in the book, and then some), Ginger is attacked one night by this beastly creature. And even though she's bitten repeatedly, and thrown around like a rag doll, and blood is flying everywhere, she literally walks away from the whole ordeal with, basically, just a few shoulder scratches.

And after this horrifying attack - Does Ginger go to a doctor for medical help? Does Ginger tell the police, or even her idiotic parents, about any of this?

No. She doesn't.

Instead, Ginger and her Elmer Fudd sister, Brigitte, keep this horrible attack a complete secret and at this point this truly asinine Horror film goes straight to the dogs with its 100% garbage story where each of Ginger's victims always seem to lose enough blood for about 10 people.

Ho-Hum!

I'd say that Ginger Snaps is easily horror at its absolute worst with its terrible acting, laughable monster-effects and moronic dialog.
