Brigitte's on the run from Bailey Downs, and she tries to prevent what happened to her sister, Ginger, from happening to her by shooting up with monkshood. Eventually she collapses and the police that find her assume the monkshood is an illegal drug, and she is sent to rehab. She is deprived of the only thing that will stop her from turning into a beast and killing everyone and everything in her way. She meets a girl who is quiet and not well-liked, and much like herself, by the name of Ghost that helps her deal with her new problem and to escape the werewolf curse.Written by
The dilapidated area of the hospital in the film was actually a real life abandoned mental hospital, and its state (the paint peeling of the walls and everything falling to pieces) is exactly as the filmmakers had found it. See more »
On the scene where Tyler injects Brigitte for the first time at the mental hospital, the content of the syringe varies from 1/3 to almost 1/2 full. See more »

Both the US and Canadian DVD releases contain deleted scenes. The additional footage is as follows.
Additional footage during the opening scene showing Brigitte walking along the street before entering the library and walking to the back row.
An alternate introduction for Ginger. Brigitte marks in her journal the time it took her latest wound to heal. Ginger appears on the bed behind her, reading a book and telling Brigitte that the monkshood isn't a cure.
When Brigitte wakes up in the clinic, she bangs on her door to get someone's attention. Ghost sees her and walks up to the door. Through the door's window, Ghost tells Brigitte that she's in "Oscar Hamilton's Body Farm," and that the doctors are going to harvest Brigitte's limbs. She also tells Brigitte that she is lucky, and that the doctors only want Brigitte's feet. Ghost then points to Barbara in the full body gauze, and says that the doctors took all of Barbara's skin. Ghost then hears Alice approaching and runs away.
After her failed attempt to escape, Brigitte gets escorted back to her room by Tyler. Along the way, Alice tells her that there are no easy escapes.
Brigitte uses a piece of meat in her dinner to lure the dog to her door. Tyler and Ghost follow. Brigitte asks Tyler to let her out. He refuses. Outside, Ghost feeds the piece of meat to the dog.
The dog barks at Brigitte as she walks down the hall. She reaches out to pet it, and the dog pees. A counselor asks Ghost why she brought the dog inside, and Ghost says because "Rocky knows evil."
Alice talks to Brigitte and offers her a deal. Brigitte's door will be unlocked if Brigitte agrees to spend some social time with the other girls.
Alice tells Brigitte a story of when she was a junkie. After Alice leaves, Brigitte makes herself vomit on her gown so the nurse will let her take a bath.
Okay, like a few of the other respondents, I am a Canadian and I loved the original Ginger Snaps. And while this sequel was entertaining and kept me frequently on the edge of my seat, it cannot stand up the original. Ginger Snaps was ingeniously spun through with threads of unconventional wit, satire, metaphor, and buckets of stark in your face horror and gore. Ginger Snaps 2, like the original, has a feminist metaphorical underpinning to it, but sorely lacks the wit, satire and wonderfully creative energy that went into the original script. It more or less settles for being a horror film, and a somewhat conventional one at that. I'm still recommending it, for while it's ambitions are modest, it succeeds at all it attempts, and Emily Perkins once again shines in her role of the tortured preadolescent outsider.
