10. 'Ginger Snaps' (2000)
Before he'd go on to make the world's greatest TV clone drama Orphan Black, John Fawcett would co-write and direct this tale of two Goth sisters — one of whom, Ginger, is bit by a strange creature roaming their suburbs one evening. Quicker than you can sing a verse of Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Bad Moon Rising," the sibling with the teeth marks starts to exhibit some strange behavior, from sprouting a tail to aggressive sexuality. As a metaphor for the girlhood-to-womanhood changes of puberty, this werewolf film may not be subtle. But the way it portrays the bond between these misfit sisters and mines the sense of not belonging for dark humor and horror puts this head and hairy shoulders above most girl-in-trouble monster movies.
