After a brief break, Chaos and Carnage are back with bite, kicking off Women in Horror Month with “Ginger Snaps”, a subversive tale of sisterhood.
Join us as we chat about the fierce, feminist film that gives new meaning to the phrase “she’s going through the change”.

Chaos and Carnage forgot to do a five second summary on their first episode back from hiatus, but things generally went smoothly aside from that — and not awry at all.
Sisters Ginger and Bridgette do everything together. They share a room, are in the same classes at school, make fun of the same kids at school and obsess over death, mostly theirs, making macabre videos staging their deaths in various bloody ways that get them sent to the guidance counselor.
It is when they are out together at night intending to pull a prank on a girl who insulted Bridgette at school that a werewolf hones in on Ginger and all the puberty that is catching up to her, and attacks. Bridgette tries her best to defend her sister, but Ginger ends up barely escaping with her life.
It soon becomes clear that Ginger is changing.
At first she is scared and begs Bridgette to help her, but soon she begins pulling away from her sister as she revels in her new changes, and Bridgette realizes she is going to have to fight to save her sister from herself.
Check out the trailer for Ginger Snaps below. And if you haven’t seen it, or if it’s been a while, be sure to catch up on the film before listening to this spoiler-y podcast. Ginger Snaps is currently streaming on Amazon Prime, Vudu and Tubi!
