This horror movie is proof that low budget films can be amazing! I loved it. So good. Absolutely amazing! The plot was very good and the ending was very good too. It was a twist. I thought for sure Brigitte would have done the opposite of what she did. But good never the less. Brigitte finally breaks free and isn't Ginger's shadow anymore. Very good movie

There are times in a persons life when they go through special changes. You know hair in new and exciting places, noticing the opposite sex and getting all worked up and of course, turning into a bloodthirsty beast and killing everyone around you. Werewolves and puberty may seem like a strange combination, but somehow this manages to make the analogy while being original and entertaining. Sure, you can draw comparisons to Carrie - another puberty horror story, but this film manages to take the idea into strange and dark places. The acting could be better, but for a Canadian film, I think its a certified hit.

Hot warewolfs and interesting plot

One of the best warewolf movies I have seen and I have seen a lot of them. It was completely enjoyable and entertaining to watch. Though it was a bit predictable the plot lent it self to many surprises and interesting scenes. It reminded me a lot of the Lost Boys meets Carrie. It had the raw emotions from Carrie with the girls who were the misfits and always picked on getting their revenge. It also had the sibling bond and never ending love that they share.

Well that is about as in depth as I will get into this movie. As a horror it was good but didn't really make me jump out of my seat. Katharine Isabelle was incredibly hot and seductive and Emily Perkins was convincing in her misfit little sister role.

I would definitely recommend this movie to any fan of horror.

I have a tail!!

I'm a big fan of monster movies....especially anything involving werewolves.

This is a great take of the werewolf genre; playing off of it and turning lycanthropy into an STD-styled disease. A very good original idea (I'm not surprised it isn't an American film because we all know for some reason this country can't seem to make a lot of good original movies; especially horror....we can only remake ones from other countries.) So, as much flak as Canada gets, they know how to do their movie productions.

I enjoyed the cast. Mimi Rogers seemed a little out of place in my opinion. The two sisters; played by Emily Perkins and Katherine Isabelle, did a stand out job with their roles. Emily particularly takes the award for strongest performance.

It's difficult for me to break down...
