Storyline

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 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.

Alternate Versions

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.

User Reviews

A dark reflection of the first ...
16 May 2004 | by Poe-17See all my reviews

This is a genuinely creepy film, with creepy plot, creepy filming and creepy story with several creepy scenes. A sequel inspired by but not a thematic continuation of the first. With most sequels you walk in expecting an extension of the first, all the things that worked in the first film delivered in the second. Seldom does the sequel collect the audacity to march off in a different direction.

This one bravely does and creates and entirely different film, a much darker one spun cleanly from the first.

Apologies to all the nay sayers but this is dead solid perfect.

A cult niche and maybe a lesson on how to do sequels ... get creative people on board to use the engine of unexpected popularity, or expected popularity, for inventive film making.

I'll own this one and the original.

Cool.
