Fifteen years ago, Ginger Snaps clawed its way into theaters. It's rare to find a movie that so perfectly encapsulates the best of two genres, but Ginger Snaps is both a remarkable horror movie and a teen movie. Maybe it's the fact that in 2001 I was 14, but out of all of the fantastic werewolf movies out there — Dog Soldiers, An American Werewolf in London, Wes Craven's Cursed, The Howling and so on — Ginger Snaps will always be my favorite.
Maybe that's partly due to the strong presence of Katharine Isabelle, whose career was only strengthened by snapping her furry jaws back in 2001; from Bones, Freddy vs. Jason, Torment and the seminal American Mary, Isabelle has grown into a true modern horror icon.
Check out how the inimitable Katharine Isabelle and the other glorious main characters from Ginger Snaps are doing, fifteen years later.
