Is becoming a woman analogous, in some deep psychological way, to becoming a werewolf? Ginger is 16, edgy, tough, and, with her younger sister, into staging and photographing scenes of death. They've made a pact about dying together. In early October, on the night she has her first period, which is also the night of a full moon, a werewolf bites Ginger. Within a few days, some serious changes happen to her body and her temperament. Her sister Brigitte, 15, tries to find a cure with the help of Sam, a local doper. As Brigitte races against the clock, Halloween and another full moon approach, Ginger gets scarier, and it isn't just local dogs that begin to die.

Ginger: Suicide is like... the ultimate fuck you.
Ginger: Pervert, she's fiftern! Brigitte: Ginger wait outside for me! Ginger: Fine. But if he rapes you, don't come crying. I'll be home. [Leaves] Brigitte: ...She's just freaking. Sam: Umm, I don't think of you that way. [Brigitte looks at Sam, sighs and rolls her eyes]

- Among the students paged over the school's PA system by an uncredited Lucy Lawless are Samuel and Theodore Raimi. Ted Raimi is Lawless' co-star on "Xena: Warrior Princess" (1995); Ted's brother Sam Raimi is the show's executive producer.
The role of Ginger originally was offered to 'Sarah Polley' and Natasha Lyonne, but they both turned it down.
Brigitte's hair is a wig.
Although Katharine Isabelle is supposed to be playing Emily Perkins' older sister, she is actually five years younger than Emily in real life.
Due to the fact that the film features teenagers in violent situations the production had difficulty getting funding because the Columbine massacre and other school shootings had recently occurred.
