Ginger Snaps 2 - Unleashed
The feminist horror film genre might not have very many prominent entries, but the critically acclaimed 2000 film Ginger Snaps was just that. A darkly humorous chiller that drew parallels between menstruation and a werewolf curse, the John Fawcett picture garnered several Canadian Genie Award nominations and a loyal cult following. Four years later, Brett Sullivan, the film's editor, made his feature directorial debut with this sequel, Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed. Katharine Isabelle and Emily Perkins reprise their roles from the first film as sisters Ginger and Brigitte, respectively. This… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Keeps most cliches at bay."
‑ Dennis Harvey, Variety
"Dreadful. Absolutely inappropriate for kids."
‑ Sarah Wenk, Common Sense Media
"Things only get way worse for the hairy-palmed teen..."
‑ Eric Campos, Film Threat
"Ginger Snaps Unleashed could be picked apart by the fussy viewer, but that would be disingenuous considering what is achieved with so little cash."
‑ Oz,
"An engrossing, well-performed thriller that falters somewhat in suspense and originality."
‑ Angela Baldassarre,
"A worthy sequel to a cut-above horror movie."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"Driven by good performances especially from Perkins who exposes her pure acting ability."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"The sense of ironic humor and creeping dread of the original are mostly gone, and Ginger 2 ends up as a much more conventional horror/thriller"
‑ Christopher Null,
"Ginger Snaps II: Unleashed features the same witty, honest dialogue as the original, with improved music, make-up and werewolf effects."
‑ Liisa Ladouceur, Rue Morgue Magazine
"...the creature effects have been improved here, which are fairly convincing this time around (rather than resembling a burly guy in a furry suit)."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"If Ginger Snaps II: Unleashed feels a bit scattered and the humour self-congratulatory, at least the performances never flag."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"First-time screenwriter Megan Martin avoids the trap of simply rehashing the first film with new characters, instead crafting a very dark fairy tale."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"It's no DOG SOLDIERS, but it is one of the better Werewolf movies to come out recently. Don't let the ravings of a few fanboys overly-inflate your expectations, and enjoy."
‑ Brian Mckay,
"[It's] unlikely to be the flavour-of-the-week critic's pet that the original was, but it's a rare sequel that improves upon its predecessor in every respect."
‑ Mark Palermo, Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)
"A well-paced horror whose slick, exhilarating action sequences are a significant improvement over the original."
‑ Catharine Tunnacliffe, eye WEEKLY
