Director John Fawcett, star Emily Perkins, producer Steven Hoban, screenwriter Karen Walton, actor Jess Mose, special effects artist Paul Jones, composer Mike Shields and editor Brett Sullivan are interviewed for this sixty-seven minute documentary that takes a look at the making of GINGER SNAPS. THis here was released more than a decade after the film was originally released so everyone involved had time to look back on the process and refelct on what it did for their careers.
Some of the most interesting discussions happen early on when Fawcett talks about why he wanted to do the picture and why he wanted Walton to write is so badly. From here we get into the importance of the casting, the special effects and various other production stories. Also covered are some of the post-production problems including issues that people were having with the profanity in the movie. Also covered is the film's original release and how it eventually got a cult following.
For the most part this here is a well-detailed look at the production of the movie, the various issues that come up on a low-budget movie and of course an even better look at what happened once the movie was completed. Fans of the film will certainly enjoy what is offered here as the interviews are extremely good and the documentary does a fine job at telling the story. Of course, there's a certain actress missing, which is too bad but outside of that this is very much worth watching.
