Trivia / Ginger Snaps

  • Dawson Casting:
    • Brigitte, age 15, is played by a 23-year-old Emily Perkins. Katharine Isabelle, who plays her big sis Ginger, is four years younger than Perkins. What's really weird is that the characters actually look their age, right down to Brigitte appearing younger than Ginger.
    • Ghost in the second film. Tatiana Maslany was 19 at the time of filming, but Ghost is 13.
  • Shared Universe: With Orphan Black: both Orphan Black and this film series take place partially in fictional suburb Bailey Downs and were created by the same people. The rehab clinic Brigitte attends in the second film is the same clinic that Alison Hendrix attends in Orphan Black. They also share some cast, Tatiana Maslany and Eric Johnson among them.
  • Too Soon: News that Telefilm Canada was funding a "teen slasher flick" (and one with a goth protagonist, at that) right after the Columbine massacre and a copycat shooting in Alberta was met with outrage from the Canadian media.
