For horror girls, you can't get much better "coming of age" story than the teenage nightmare Ginger Snaps (2000). Ladies, if you haven't seen Ginger Snaps, grab your girlfriends and get watching. Death obsessed teenagers (we've all been there, right? No?), sexual awakenings, and the awkwardness of puberty all wrapped up in a neat little werewolf flick that also features from great gore and FX. Plus - a young, fresh, and totally creepy Katharine Isabelle (American Mary, Hannibal).

Shout! Factory unleashes the Ginger Snaps two-disc set July 22 under the Scream Factory banner. Previously issued Stateside on a bare-bones, extras-free DVD by Artisan, Ginger Snaps now gets its full due from Shout!, with a 1080p hi-def widescreen transfer, DTS-HD Master Audio and a ton of special features.

Features include:

• New interviews with director John Fawcett, writer Karen Walton, actors Perkins and Jesse Moss, producer Steve Hoban, makeup FX artist Paul Jones (Orphan Black, The Thing, Skinwalkers, Silent Hill), composer Michael Shields and editor Brett Sullivan • New Women in Horror panel discussing Ginger Snaps • Audio commentary by Fawcett • Audio commentary by Walton • Deleted scenes with optional commentary by Fawcett and Walton • “The Making of Ginger Snaps” vintage featurette • “Creation of the Beast” • “Being John Fawcett” • Cast auditions and rehearsals • Theatrical trailers • TV spots • Production design/artwork/photo Gallery
