Storyline

Brigitte's on the run from Bailey Downs, and she tries to prevent what happened to her sister, Ginger, from happening to her by shooting up with monkshood. Eventually she collapses and the police that find her assume the monkshood is an illegal drug, and she is sent to rehab. She is deprived of the only thing that will stop her from turning into a beast and killing everyone and everything in her way. She meets a girl who is quiet and not well-liked, and much like herself, by the name of Ghost that helps her deal with her new problem and to escape the werewolf curse. Written by Wallace Entertainment

Quotes

Ginger: You're starting to understand, aren't you? How it all starts with wanting? What were you thinking when he was in that stall with you? Because even I - really - was shocked.
Brigitte: I...
Ginger: [Mimicking Brigitte] I wanted the monkshood.
Brigitte: I just...
Ginger: [mimicking] I just -
[frowns]
Ginger: I mean, what did you want when he was pushing up against you? You're starting to figure it out, aren't you? How it all starts innocently enough, today you wanna to fuck him - tomorrow you just wanna bite a hole in his sternum.

Alternate Versions

Both the US and Canadian DVD releases contain deleted scenes. The additional footage is as follows.
  • Additional footage during the opening scene showing Brigitte walking along the street before entering the library and walking to the back row.
  • An alternate introduction for Ginger. Brigitte marks in her journal the time it took her latest wound to heal. Ginger appears on the bed behind her, reading a book and telling Brigitte that the monkshood isn't a cure.
  • When Brigitte wakes up in the clinic, she bangs on her door to get someone's attention. Ghost sees her and walks up to the door. Through the door's window, Ghost tells Brigitte that she's in "Oscar Hamilton's Body Farm," and that the doctors are going to harvest Brigitte's limbs. She also tells Brigitte that she is lucky, and that the doctors only want Brigitte's feet. Ghost then points to Barbara in the full body gauze, and says that the doctors took all of Barbara's skin. Ghost then hears Alice approaching and runs away.
  • After her failed attempt to escape, Brigitte gets escorted back to her room by Tyler. Along the way, Alice tells her that there are no easy escapes.
  • Brigitte uses a piece of meat in her dinner to lure the dog to her door. Tyler and Ghost follow. Brigitte asks Tyler to let her out. He refuses. Outside, Ghost feeds the piece of meat to the dog.
  • The dog barks at Brigitte as she walks down the hall. She reaches out to pet it, and the dog pees. A counselor asks Ghost why she brought the dog inside, and Ghost says because "Rocky knows evil."
  • Alice talks to Brigitte and offers her a deal. Brigitte's door will be unlocked if Brigitte agrees to spend some social time with the other girls.
  • Alice tells Brigitte a story of when she was a junkie. After Alice leaves, Brigitte makes herself vomit on her gown so the nurse will let her take a bath.

Get Ur Wolf On
11 February 2004 | by TheeCatInTheHatSee all my reviews

When I first heard a sequal was being done for the 2000 Canadian indie flick Ginger Snaps, I felt mixed emotions. Sure i was enthusiastic about seeing Brigitte (and maybe Ginger) again, but, well, i couldn't help but wonder if this upcoming film was going to flop next to its predesscor, thus ruining the promising series (ex:Freddy's Dead, Halloween 2). But, when I saw the day after it was realeased on 100 screens across Canada, i was proudly proved wrong. Boy, was i wrong! Not only does this film dwelve deeper into a gorier and darker storyline, we get even more interesting and kooky characters to feast on, like the ever-comic book loving, brace-faced Ghost. Heck, even Ginger makes some key appearances in Brigitte's dreams and wacked-out moments, playing more as a jaded doomsayer if anything. The storyline may seem indifferent to some people, but sitting down and watching it is another thing. It's been a while, but a still 15-year-old Brigitte has escaped the morose grips of Bailey Downs suburbs, and on with her lycanthropic infection. But, like the smart character she's been drawn out to be, Brigitte staves off of becoming a werewolf by giving herself the right dosage of monkshood everyday, thus one day collapsing in a snow bank after her and a bookworm-y librarien get attacked by a very fierce (if not horny) werewolf. She is brought in to a drug rehab for women and is kept from her supply of monkshood, and oh the bloody trail of bodies begin. Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed is a smart, hip, and awesome scary werewolf movie that had the spunk to go further than its predesscor did.The performances were gourmet steak and potatoes, and the score has a more Resident Evil beat to it (ima talking the RE game series). This is definately not a horror movie to be missed. See it at all costs! And please, get your wolf on :)
