Ginger Snaps 1 established a solid place in the lycanthropic cult realm with intriguing and developed characters, a pedigreed plot, and convincing gore, but in the curse of substandard succession, Ginger Snaps 2 - Unleashed (2004) could not escape the disease of the sequel. A howling dissapointment to those who fell under Ginger 1's spell.

If blood is what you want than blood is what you'll get. Unfortunately, if you like your gore from flesh on fang than you'll be disappointed. Director Brett Sullivan does a decent job of quenching fan's thirst except most of the blood is let by heroine Bridgette's (Emily Perkins) own hand upon her flesh in close-ups with scalpels, needles, or broken glass as she shoots up wolfs bane or explores her own healing rate in order to better understand her advancing disease. Unfortunately Sullivan may have blown his effects budget here instead of on blood-lusting beasts. If you come here to see werewolves, go back.

Fans of Katharine Isabelle, who plays Ginger in both GS 1 and 2, will be disappointed, as her role is minimal and screen time even less. If you're going to
watch this film just to see how Ginger makes it into a sequel, please just ask someone. Ginger's timorous sister Bridgette, however, pleasingly develops from
the introverted high school goth girl in GS 1 into a strong and willful little demoness. This film may belong in the Wolfman section of your horror library, just keep it hidden behind it's far better predecessor.

A Part 2 Worth Seeing.

I stumbled across the first one on the shelf at the rental store, and I enjoyed it! This one was equally good to watch but in a different way. Both were decent wolf movies, and I liked the character played by Emily Perkins. You wanted her to succeed.

Offered plenty of wolf gore for those looking for that. And a couple of twists I didn't expect (and didn't always like). But the bottom line is this was a decent movie in its own right. And if you liked the first one, this shouldn't disappoint.
