Ginger Snaps is a 2000 Canadian werewolf film directed by John Fawcett. The plot focuses on two close teenage sisters, Ginger and Brigitte Fitzgerald (Katharine Isabelle and Emily Perkins), who are obsessed with death. The title is a pun on the biscuit of the same name. "Snap" also relates to losing one's self-control, or a quick, aggressive bite. During the film's production, the Columbine High School massacre and a school shooting in Canada took place, causing public controversy over the film's horror themes and the funding it received from Telefilm.

Critics also praised the lead actresses performances and the film's use of lycanthropy as a metaphor for puberty.
