Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning (2004, CDN) C-94m. ** D: Grant Harvey. Starring Katharine Isabelle, Emily Perkins, Nathaniel Arcand, JR Bourne, Hugh Dillon, Adrien Dorval, Brendan Fletcher. David La Haye. GINGER SNAPS 3 (alternative title) is a prequel of sorts, set in 19th century Canada, where the two sisters wander through the wintry wilderness and stumble into a fort, which is being fortified against an unknown evil - probably werewolves. Almost like a remake, and this is film's problem. It's almost as good as the original(s), but the sense of deja vu takes away most of the suspense. Still, stylish and imaginative, a must for series fans.
