Werewolf mythology gets a wickedly subversive, feminist reworking in this sleeper cult favorite, which locates both horror and dark humor in the turbulent experience of puberty. Alienated from their suburban surroundings and preoccupied by death, goth teen sisters Ginger (Katharine Isabelle) and Brigitte (Emily Perkins) form a pact to commit suicide by the time they’re sixteen. But a werewolf attack coupled with the onset of her first period brings about a terrifying change in Ginger—leaving Brigitte to try and save her sister from herself.
