Review: Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning (2004)

Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning

The third film in the satisfying Ginger Snaps trilogy is the least successful, but still stands heads and tails above most contemporary werewolf yarns.

Thankfully, this film from Canada has breathed fascinating new life into lycanthropy.(read more...)
