October 29 – Halloween Countdown

The early 00’s were a good time for werewolf movies.

Oh, sure there was studio messes like Cursed, but Neil Marshall launched his career as a director with Dog Soldiers in 2002. And in Canada, John Fawcett (who would go on to create Orphan Black) had his own lycanthropic twist to play in 2000…

Hey! They have Halloween in Canada!

Such a terrific, dark, funny, sweet movie, is Ginger Snaps, with an Angela Carter lens of feminine power (warped, of course, by the full moon’s curse)…

Katherine Isabelle is great in this, as is Emily Perkins. Mimi Rogers is no slouch as their mother either.

And of course, the climax takes place on Halloween. As it should!
