The girls are informed that a hunting party set off to collect supplies and rations, but has yet to return. Furthermore, strange animals have been attacking the outpost. Animals that bear some resemblance (via tattoos and other discernable markings) to the members of the hunting party that had left months ago. In addition, the leader of this outpost has his own secret that will place Ginger and Brigitte in a less-than-desirable position that will test the bounds of their sisterly love for one another.
Yes, the same actresses return for this film, and yes, they bear the same names as the sisters in the previous films. Is there some kind of time warp or reincarnation tale at work here? No. I suppose the viewer is supposed to take the coincidences as merely that. Coincidences. As odd as this sounds, it really does work quite well, and makes this movie a stand-alone addition to the trilogy.
The sets are highly atmospheric, haunting, and sinister. The costumes are just as well done, and only add to the creepy, gothic feel of the film, as does the score. I really loved the combination of these elements.Read more ›
The first two "Ginger Snaps" installments took place in contemporary Canada, mainly in suburbs and city; but "Ginger Snaps Back" is set in the Canadian frontier wilderness of nearly 200 years ago. Furthermore, in the earlier films (particularly the first) the two sisters Brigitte and Ginger share a complex relationship--loving but mutually antagonistic: Ginger's cynical death wish keeps her at odds with Brigitte who would stay alive (and human!) at any cost. In "Ginger Snaps Back," however, the girls have been simplified: they've become fairy tale orphans wandering through a monster-infested forest.
Early on in the film, the sisters find shelter in a militaristic fort/outpost run by some very hard guys--misfit toughs who resemble ogres just waiting for victims to approach their lonely castle! Significantly, it's in this dubious refuge that Ginger is infected with lycanthropy. Thus with monsters lurking outside the gates as well as within, the film plunges toward a fiery but despairing climax.
Overall, "Ginger Snaps Back" conveys a thrilling atmosphere of folklore and legends--an ancient eeriness more easily felt than described. Even the film's snow-covered forests radiate a sense of centuries-old Indian myths; appropriately, the film's Indian characters, including a larger-than-life hunter/warrior, identify the werewolves with the wendigo.
As a work of folklore or fairy tale, "Ginger Snaps Back" tends to be less verbal, but more visionary than the preceding films in this trilogy. Startling, beautiful images abound in this movie.Read more ›
