Ginger Snaps is without a doubt the best werewolf movie to come out in 25 years – and not just because I have a major girl crush on Katharine Isabelle. I highly recommend this 2000 Canadian teen horror film because it is dark, brutal, stylish and seriously entertaining. In the film, Ginger and her little sister, Brigitte, are two high school outcasts who are obsessed with death and must deal with the aftermath of a vicious attack by a terrifying beast in the woods.
I highly recommend that you pick any upcoming weekend or free time to binge REAL HARD on Eli Roth’s insanely addictive horror series “Hemlock Grove”. Available on Netflix, Hemlock Grove is a town shrouded in mystery and a twisted past. The show follows the friendship of Peter Rumancek and Roman Godfrey as they try to track down who (or what) is responsible for horrific killings that have shocked the town. But Peter and Roman have their own dark secrets, too.
The show is well written and entertaining enough to satisfy non-horror fans. I was particularly enthralled by the performances in this series. Not once did I become bored with the characters which speaks to the quality of acting. For horror fans like myself, Hemlock Grove shines in its moments of weirdness, depravity, gore, and some fucking awesome werewolf transformations.
Hemlock Grove is based on a novel by Brian McGreevy. Production of season 2 has completed, but no release date has been announced. I also recommend the soundtrack which is available on Spotify.
