  • Brigitte (Emily Perkins) and Ginger (Katharine Isabelle) are unusual sisters. For a school project they take pictures of each other in various suicide poses that look frighteningly realistic. No other students will talk to them. Ginger is almost sixteen, Brigitte a year younger, but they are in the same classes, and neither of them has gotten her period yet. They do virtually everything together--in fact, their motto is "Together Forever"--until one night Ginger gets attacked by the Beast of Bailey Downs, which previously had been killing and eviscerating dogs. And Ginger then begins to change....

    John Fawcett's debut feature film is everything a good horror film should be--creepy, weird, oddly funny, sexy, and very bloody, with its conclusion taking place on Halloween night. Michael Shields's moody score lofts above every scene like dark shadows about to envelop the characters. Perkins and Isabelle are outstanding as the two morbid Fitzgerald sisters with a taste for death. This independent Canadian production also stars Mimi Rogers as the mother who can't wait for her daughters to menstruate.
