Random: 30 Day Horror Challenge Day 4

Today's question: What is your favorite werewolf movie?

This one is a cinch.  I've never been a big fan of werewolf movies, but Ginger Snaps is an exception.  Breaking away from the typical late 90s/early 00s slasher teen horror, Ginger Snaps took a whole different approach to werewolfs.  Not only did they attack wandering gentleman and Michael J. Fox, but now goth chicks on their period were open season.

There was so much going on in this flick, and the acting was pretty great for a bunch of teenagers and a modest budget.  The sisters interacted so well together, and the transformation from a depressed Morticia to a sex starved vixen was horror movie gold.

This movie also gives me warm fuzzy memories of my sister and I vegging on the couch on a lazy Sunday.  For some reason, Ginger Snaps was ALWAYS on the freakin' SciFi channel and we never missed it.
