Everyone knows the myth of the Werewolf.
Beastly creatures that change on the full moon once bitten by another. Driven by the need for human flesh and only killed by a silver stake through the heart. The newer take on the Lycan suggests more control over their transformation, but still as deadly. If the codes and conventions of these films are so easily recognised then how can you possibly bring something new to the genre? With the independent film Ginger Snaps, the filmmakers have done just that while telling the story of its two teenage protagonists.
