16 and 15 year old sisters Ginger and Brigitte are doing their
best to stay outsiders. The typical stupid foolin' around cheerleaders
boys are really turning them off. "Out by sixteen or dead in this
scene - together forever" is their morbid pact - because what
classmates or their own mother consider as "becoming a woman"
seems to be the same as getting dumber due to hormonal alterations.
So the wicked girls prefer to fake and imitate 1001 arts of dying
for their school project, including decapitations and lawnmower-splattered
bodies. But nothing can stop the disaster that is about to happen...
While walking through the forest at night a petrifying beast,
allured as Ginger's got her period, attacks her. Since then, infected
with the obsession for meat, Brigitte's
sister turns more and more into a Vamp that picks up boys at daytime
and eats the dogs of their hated classmates in the night. Ginger's
escalating thirst for blood begins to get out of control and even
her innocent sister Brigitte isn't able to stop her...
humorous yet deadly serious in tone, this character driven werewolf
horror takes a dazzling new approach to Neil Jordan‘s menstruation
anxiety of THE
COMPANY OF WOLVES. Blood is running, but not from the imagined
source the advice on puberty volunteering adults believe. To intensify
the tension and gore to its utmost crescendo, even the supporting
characters were drawn far more strikingly than we have been made
used to in the genre. Above all Mimi Rogers delivers a hilariously
unsuspecting, yet zealously protective mother.
