* DawsonCasting:
** Brigitte, age 15, is played by a 23-year-old Emily Perkins. Creator/KatharineIsabelle, 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. Creator/TatianaMaslany was 19 at the time of filming, but Ghost is 13.
* SharedUniverse: With ''Series/OrphanBlack'', which was also co-created by John Fawcett and shares some cast members with the films, Creator/TatianaMaslany and Eric Johnson among them. Both take place partially in a fictional Canadian suburb called Bailey Downs, and the rehab clinic Brigitte attends in the second film is the same clinic that Alison Hendrix attends in ''Orphan Black''.
** Also joining in is ''A Christmas Horror Story'' created by several people involved with Ginger Snaps and Orphan Black. The film takes place in Bailey Downs, and according to WordOfGod by Steve Hoben (one director of ACHS, producer on Ginger Snaps) a sequel segment to Ginger Snaps was on the table for that movie but wasn't chosen. But two of the directors have expressed interest in a sequel to ACHS.
* ThoseTwoActors: Hilariously enough, Creator/KatharineIsabelle and Emily Perkins would again play sisters in ''Film/AnotherCinderellaStory'' in 2008, a far more lighthearted film than the ''Ginger Snaps'' series.
* TooSoon: News that Telefilm Canada was funding a "[[CowboyBebopAtHisComputer teen slasher flick]]" (and one with a {{goth}} [[AcceptableTargets protagonist]], at that) right after the UsefulNotes/{{Columbine}} massacre and a copycat shooting in Alberta was met with outrage from the Canadian media.
