    Heres some news taken from fangoria.com for the 2 sequels to the very good horror flick Gingersnaps.

    Production begins on the back-to-back follow-ups to GINGER SNAPS in early February in Edmonton, Canada, with each film having a six-week shoot. The first movie to roll will be a direct sequel, with actresses Emily Perkins and Katharine Isabelle both returning and original GINGER editor Brett Sullivan directing from a script by Megan Martin. Once that has wrapped, shooting will begin on the second film, a prequel set in the 1790s (!), with Grant Harvey (the first movie’s 2nd-unit director) at the helm and Perkins and Isabelle once again making appearances. As previously reported, KNB will create the werewolves and other FX for both features.

    Fingers crossed they will be as good as the first movie.

    I've never seen the first one but was always sorely tempted as it sounded very good and had good reviews. Now I think I'll just wait for a boxset :D

    The synopsis looks great, really looking forward to it.

    Pity the same can't be said for Darkness Falls.

    Ginger Snaps is good but the end is a bit poor and wasn't helped by some dire 'special' effects ala Dog Soldiers. I wonder if Mom (Mimi Rogers) will be in two or indeed three; as she did appear on the dodge herself:devil: I'd definately go for a view of the next outing though.
    Final Destination was ok but predictable. Nice to see Tony Todd is in the next one again:)
    Darkness Falls does appear to have some poor feedback and, no doubt, isn't helped by it's weak PG13 rating:rolleyes: The best thing to feature Emma Caulfield beside Buffy is her appearance on the Howard Stern Radio Show - quite a game girl as it goes, and she does:eek: :devil:

    I thought it contained one of the least predictable scenes in a movie in the last 10 years or so.

    2 sequels to the very good horror flick Gingersnaps.

    Did I miss the meeting? I mean Im a big fan of early horror movies but this was made recently and again it just reminded me of old dated horror movies. Too crap for 2 & 3 IMHO. I thought the first half of 1 was enough. PANTS!

    a well informed critique if I ever heard one... reminded you of early horror films?! what the fudge. It was a high school female werewolf flick, hardly nosferatu or frankenstein.

    Saw this on the sci-fi channel a few months ago. I had no idea what it was about, so really enjoyed it. I think many films would be better if you went into them not knowing what they were about.

    Probably more to do with the insult than the negative comment.

    Personally I liked Gingersnaps as I thought it made a nice change to the usual werewolf movies and I thought the practical effects were more effective than anything their budget would have stretched to for cgi fx.
    I wouldn't say the concept of Gingersnaps was dated, but lo-tech low budget movies can't help looking less polished than their big budget Hollywood counterparts, which I guess some might interpret as looking old fashioned. My own view is that horror films work better, for me anyway, without using cgi and having a "real" practical effect where it's required. A good case in in point would be American Werewolf in London when compared to American Werewolf in Paris (or whatever it's called) - inflatable bladders and latex is far more effective than the bad cgi fx used in the newer film.

    Amen to that.

    The use of CGI for the gore/make-up effects should be banned in any horror/gore films with a budget under £10million. It always ends up looking exactly what it is... cheap.

    Conversely, very inexpensive prosthetics and 'real' effects can often look a million dollars :)

    The Thing stands as testament to that, Rob Bottin's latex and KY jelly effects are still yet to be bettered. A true benchmark.

    Amen again :)

    Anyone who ever considered making a film with gore effects should be forced to watch The Thing at least 20 times before going into production.

    if your knowledge of film is that limited then yes I suppose a horror/comedy like Evil Dead 2 (made in 1987 btw) would seem like early horror.:rolleyes: I seem to remember kicking off with you before.

    Tom Savini's an excellent make up fx man, but I always considered him to be more of an exploding heads, bloodbags, morticians wax kind of guy. He's never come up with anything that even comes close to the way-out weirdness of the mutations Rob Bottin created for The Thing.
    The movie world would definitely be lacking if it wasn't for the pair of them though. The best 2 artists in their business, but Bottin pushes things a little bit further I reckon.
    Greg Nicotero can work wonders with a tiny budget too.

    I tend to agree with Rambo, Savini is a master of distorting the human but creature effects are not his forte.

    And he's the guy in the car that gets his head absolutely destroyed by Joe Spinell's shotgun in Maniac. Nice effect, that one. Far superior to his exploding green zombie head in Dawn of the Dead:laugh:

    I'd still like to see him get funding for Vampirates. Probably never happen but I can't help thinking it'd make a great movie.
