SHRIEK: Ginger Snaps + Happy Hour
Sun, Oct 22, 2017 at 7pm
It's October, which means multiple films this month. Last year, SHRIEK brought you all female directors for October. This year's theme is Revenge of the Girl Monsters!

To join us for GINGER SNAPS on October 22, keep reading and buy tickets from this page.
Being a teenage girl means dealing with changes in one's body and even personality and values. GINGER SNAPS takes this and connects it to werewolves, and the results are spectacular. Tensions rise between Ginger (genre crush Katherine Isabelle) and her sister Brigitte (Emily Perkins) after Ginger is bitten by a wild animal and becomes someone her sister doesn't recognize. We'll have a lot to talk about with this one, such as: why are almost all female monsters presented as sexy? Why do women and girls become sexy when they become monsters?
Doors: 6:30pm. Opening Talk & Film: 7:00pm
