| The Teenage Werewolf Girl Saga Continues...
After the explosively entertaining "Ginger Snaps", I had some doubts that the sequels could live up to the original. But in this one, we are greeted to a wonderful film picking up exactly where the first one left off: now with Bridget trying to stop herself from becoming a werewolf, and escaping from the rehab center she has been placed in.

If you find cutting and self-mutilation to be disgusting, then this is the film you want to either see or avoid. The opening credits are over a scene of Bridget in the bathtub, cutting herself to pieces. She continues to cut herself throughout the movie, as well as give herself injections.

The scenery is fantastic, as rehabs, hospitals and insane asylums are always great places for horror films if you know how to film them. The makers of this film know exactly what they're doing. Add secret passageways and you're set.

The new cast is also wonderful, easily making up for Ginger having a very small role. The cast now has several male staffers working in an all-girl rehab center, leading to such activities as trading sexual favors for drugs. But most importantly is a new character named "Ghost" (presumably because she's almost like an albino) who is fascinated with the occult and death and befriends Bridget after finding out she might be a werewolf.

Some interesting plot twists happen I can't reveal here, and as the wolf blood begins to overtake the human blood, things heat up. And then another werewolf shows up to try and mate.

Oh, heck. Just watch the movie. These guys have taken a worn-out horror staple (lycanthropy) and added such a new dimension to it that it's almost like an entirely new invention. Excelsior!

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.
