Ginger Snaps Trilogy

Ginger Snaps (2000, John Fawcett) - 8/10
"Out by sixteen or dead at the scene, but together forever.  United against life as we know it."
     - This film takes the idea that menstruating women are monsters quite literally.

Ginger Snaps: Unleashed (2004, Brett Sullivan) - 8/10
"It only dies if you do."
     - This one takes place almost immediately after Ginger Snaps.

Ginger Snaps Back (2004, Grant Harvey) - 7/10
"Kill the boy, or one sister kills the other."
     - This is where the timeline of the trilogy gets a bit strange because, essentially, this story is about Ginger and Brigitte, but it occurs in the early 1800s.  I like to think of it as a standalone film that just so happens to be about the same two girls.

These are the best modern werewolf flicks you will find, and Ginger and Brigitte are some of the most lovable characters in horror.  I wholeheartedly recommend checking out all three of the Ginger Snaps films.
