The pacing felt just right, and the emphasis on the psychological effects Ginger's transformation is having on both herself and her sister genuinely make us sympathise for the characters, which made me extremely upset when the credits started rolling due to the tragic, but fitting, ending.
The Prestige
I don't know if any of you lot have read Barbara Creed's The Monstrous Feminine, but when I did film studies, we were able to link Creed's theories with Ginger Snaps, and that's how I realised how truly psychoanalytical and layered this film was.
The Gnat
It didn't need to be a big budget film as it wasn't a werewolf film that was driven by it special effects, but was driven by the characters and the humor in the film..
