The movie states it takes place in 1815. All of the rifles/muskets used in the movie are percussion locks, not flintlocks. The percussion cap was invented in the early 1820's. Percussion style rifles did not start becoming prevalent until the 1840's. In fact many of the "Northwest trading companies" produced flintlock trade guns well into the late 1880's. See more »
The Indians say the curse began in the time of the Ancients and was passed down through the blood of generations. There are legends of the Wendigo and the coming of the Red and the Black.

I watched this after seeing both previous movies (Ginger Snaps and Ginger Snaps- The Sequel) so I knew what to expect. You have to realise that even though this film has werewolves in it, its main theme is unbreakable sisterly loyalty. I have to say that I'm a fan so a bit biased, but as in the previous films the best thing in this one is the atmosphere- menacing and charged and the setting (dark winter woods) is just perfect! Another thing that made me come back is the two main characters. They are played with so much conviction that you really believe they could overcome anything as long as they trust each other enough. The only problem was the werewolf story itself- just a bit too predictable. Other than that I was entertained throughout and I will watch this film again!
