GINGER SNAPS Bites Its Way Onto Blu-ray July 22!

Ginger-SnapsOh buddy, I am excited!  Another wishlist title taken care of by the caring hands of Scream Factory.  I’ve made no secret this is my absolute all time favorite werewolf tale.  One random night at Family Video in college I picked this up on lowly VHS (they didn’t have it on DVD) and I fell instantly in love.  I then became a big fan of both Katharine Isabelle and Emily Perkins.  This one is getting the coveted Collector’s Edition treatment from Scream Factory, too!  Its gonna have some great cast interviews (sadly no Katharine Isabelle, but hey, she’s busy kicking some butt right now on TV’s Hannibal).  I cannot wait to have this one in my hands.  This “Summer Of Fear” is just good at being all sorts of awesome!

Ginger Snaps MEDLos Angeles, CA – Scream Factory has announced the July 22 Blu-ray release of fan-favorite Ginger Snaps (Collector’s Edition).

Fifteen-year-old Brigitte Fitzgerald (Emily Perkins, Insomnia, Juno) and her nearly-sixteen-year-old sister Ginger (Katharine Isabelle, Freddy vs. Jason, See No Evil 2) are both best friends and outcasts. Obsessed with dying and bound by a childhood pact to stay together forever, they loathe their mind-numbing existence in the suburbs of Bailey Downs. One night the two girls are heading through the woods when Ginger is savagely attacked by a wild creature.

Ginger’s horrible wounds miraculously heal over, but something is not quite right about her. Ginger is irritable and in denial. But to Brigitte, it is obvious that a terrifying force has taken hold of her sister. She’s convinced that the insatiable craving her sister is experiencing can mean only one thing – Ginger is becoming something unspeakably evil and monstrous.

Also starring Mimi Rogers (Penny Dreadful), Kris Lemche (Final Destination 3) and Jesse Moss (Tucker & Dale vs. Evil), this riveting funfest was directed by John Fawcett (Orphan Black) and written by Karen Walton (Orphan Black).
