Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed (2004) Movie Script

Out by 16 or dead in the scene, but
together forever.
Lie down!
Lie down!
Thought you were gonna die.
I'm changing... full moons have nothing
to do with it.
It's like an infection... it works from
the inside out.
It's like a virus.
Something is really, really wrong with
I can't be like this.
This is monkshood.
I don't know if you smoke it or eat it
or what,
but I need to try it now.
Please, it's me...
I'm onto you.
You come in here late at night,
you stay until all the other avid
readers are gone.
You're attracted to me, but you fear
So you bide your time,
just kind of waiting for that perfect
Don't worry, I've been dealing with
this all my life.
I'm kidding.
Your fly's open.
Yeah, I indulge in the occasional
bloodletting myself.
Brigitte Fitzgerald.
Unfortunately you have quite the
overdue account.
And technically, if you have more than
$6 owing, I'm just...
Okay, well, I'll see you later.
You're healing faster, aren't you?
That shit's not a cure, you know.
Itjust slows the transformation.
It doesn't stop it, B.
Nothing will stop it.
What are you doing?
You already dosed today.
It's poison, B.
You can't keep shooting it.
Remember that game we used to play
when we were little?
The one where we would
make ourselves hold our breath until
we passed out?
Then you'd always get scared and call
and I'd get in trouble?
That game really sucked.
Do you feel it?
You're not alone.
He's found you again.
Hi, this is a major breach of library
but I brought you the books.
Are you okay?
What did you take?
Come on, come on.
Come on.
Get in the truck.
Watch your head.
I'm gonna get you some help, okay?
Okay. Okay.
You're gonna be okay, okay?
I'm gonna get you some help.
Hey, sleepyhead.
It's time.
"She learned their habits.
She collected their secrets like
for one day she would escape and"...
I'm Alice Seversen.
I run the community outreach program
here at Happier Times Care Center.
Would you like a seat?
Your library card, which was the only
ID that we could find on you,
said that your name was Brigitte.
Is that true?
Did you find him?
Find who?
The librarian guy... Jeremy.
It came through the window.
It attacked him.
No, you suffered a near fatal
anaphylactic reaction.
I saw a guy die.
His blood was on my face.
You did have blood on your face, but
it was from the cuts on your arms.
I saw it.
When I was using,
I was convinced that the deaf
Norwegian prep cook,
who lived in the apartment over, was
trying to amputate my legs.
Come in.
- Hi.
- Brigitte, this is Luke.
He's gonna need a blood sample.
My guess is you're not afraid of
Due to cutbacks, facilities like ours
have had to get creative.
Girls on drugs don't go over too well
in private funding circles.
So, three years ago we became a
dual-care facility.
We house chronic-care patients from
the hospital system.
Barbara was badly burned in a fire.
That's her granddaughter.
She's here until we find her a foster
The hospital was built in the 1920s
to quarantine tuberculosis patients,
but ours is the only unit that is
still functional.
The other wings have been closed for
- and are strictly out-of-bounds.
- Little freak.
So, you start in lock-up, which we
maintain through your withdrawal,
and then we go from there based on
your progress.
"Had she realized her captors were
capable of terrifying feats?"
- Brigitte, Ghost. Ghost, Brigitte.
- "That at night they used to torture
their prisoners in vats of pig grease?
She had!
She ran for her life!"
Excuse me, ladies.
It's your choice...
we take you or you come.
We've got a bleeder.
I'm Tyler.
This is Marcus.
That's your cue to tell us your name.
Your own clothes are being cleaned.
I'm writing again,
which feels like coming home,
well, it's what I do.
And I feel exhilarated and scared
because I... I have to face
unadulterated truth when I'm writing.
Like the fact that my chemical
dependency is:
A, related to stuff that happened to
me as a child;
and B, that I have to explore that
with you all here;
and C, this time there's no holding
Dr. Brookner, if she doesn't shut up
I swear I'll make her drink her piss
She'll do no such thing, Wnnie.
Brigitte, you have a room of people
pretty curious about Brigitte.
And incidentally, a room full of
people who think you really suck at suicide.
What's your best-case scenario, hmm?
Go there.
What a loser.
My best-case scenario, Eleanor,
is hair everywhere but my eyeballs,
elongation of my spine till my skin
teats, and a growing tolerance, maybe
even affection for,
the smell and taste of feces... not
just my own...
and then, excruciating death.
You know, Brigitte,
some girls find group useful.
- I can't be here.
- You're feverish.
But don't worry, that's common.
Would you like to talk about what you
were shooting?
I didn't recognize it myself, which is
kind of impressive...
there's not a lot you can stick that I
haven't been familiar with.
It must be great to be a role model.
Do you mind?
So, tell me...
why were you timing how long it takes
your cuts to heal?
Look, Alice,
if I was messed up in the way you
think I am,
I would really appreciate someone like
you to help me.
And Brigitte...
if I was stupid in the way that you
wish I was,
I'd let you go.
I have been where you are.
You have no idea where I am.
If you keep me here people are gonna
So you know, threats are a big no-no
with Alice.
"If you keep me here people are gonna
Why bother, B?
You know you're healing faster.
It's only a matter of time before you
start changing on the outside too.
You know you're changing.
He knows you're changing.
And he'll find you.
Brigitte's blood work back yet?
And the only thing in her system is
the stuff we found on her.
- It's a plant extract called
- Oh.
- Totally legal, totally accessible.
It's sold in craft stores
for dried flower arrangements.
Ooh, Jesus.
I've never heard of it before.
That's because Monkshood isn't a
What is it then?
A poison... also called aconitum
or wolfsbane.
But this... this isn't mild.
This would send the average adult into
aseptic shock.
So she's hooked on poison.
Hey, what did I tell you about
eavesdropping, huh?
Go on, get out of here.
Dudes, Alice.
There are 14 species of maple
native to Canada and the United
Very easy to recognize, the maple is
the only
- deciduous species in North America...
- Hey, B-B.
...with multi-lobed leaves that grow
in pairs
on opposite sides of the branch.
Most maples will lose these unique
leaves in the autumn.
Suddenly... will have their leaves
turn a vibrant red, yellow or orange
before they fall...
...until the following spring.
A circle of life begins anew
with a fresh set of these distinct

have grown at an enormous rate...
I think it is called the Manitoba...
What are you doing in here?
It's amazing the things you'll find in
this place at night.
- Are you gonna give that to me?
- Mmm-hmm.
But I get to do it.
And I get to chose where.
- Why?
- I bet you were one of those girls
that always asked her mom "Why?"
"Mom, it's cold out, why?"
"Mom, it's dark out, why?"
I need that.
- Give it to me.
- Okay.
But it has to be in a place no one
else will see.
Pull down your pants.
Fuck you.
That was way out of line.
Good night, Brigitte.
Why do all the ones that get killed
have tattoos?
"Why was he so anxious to get rid of
Because it was past her bedtime.
Let's go.
Cover your ears to his lies, Rocky.
"Late at night, in secret chambers
he carried out his reign of moral
Isn't that mortal terror?
Oh, good boy.
Come here.
Yes, maybe that's it, we were abducted
by aliens.
And they've taken us back to their
and put us in some kind of zoo.
But there's a sign that says,
- "Don't eat the humans"...
- Making up more childhood sexual abuse?
Sticks and stones, fatso.
...unless they're feeding us.
Why wouldn't they want to fatten us up
before the slaughter?
Unless they are feeding us and we just
don't know it!
...And they're just waiting and
This is getting so boring.
It's an ancient game,
the throwing of pennies at the local
moron or midget.
I can't see the TV.
I said I can't see the TV!
Would you like me to throw you at her
What are you doing?
Vicious, yet constrained.
That's noble, considering what you
could have done to her.
Next time I'd recommend smashing
Beth-Ann's head
against Koral's like a cymbal or a
battering ram.
- But there's always next time...
- Get lost.
When you close your eyes, is it hell
you see?
The faster you heal, the closer he
gets, B.
Or is that the closer he gets, the
faster you heal?
Oooh, here's a good one.
"At the dawn of darkness there was a
goddess of night
who walked the hills with a shepherd's
and a pack of wild hounds.
The hounds"...
oh, they were from hell...
..."would do her evil deeds and she
wouldn't lift a finger."
"Her finger... it was finely jeweled
with baby's teeth."
There you are.
I'm on lunch duty.
You didn't like it when Tyler came
into your room, did you?
The others do.
He tells me everything.
We have an understanding.
- Do you turn at the full moon?
- You watch too many horror movies.
I'm not allowed to watch horror
or technically, to read comics.
Or to eat foods with gluten...
I'm too impressionable.
- Why doesn't that surprise me?
- Well, not the gluten thing...
that'sjust digestive.
Your ear.
Get out!
I know where Tyler keeps his stash.
I said, get out!
We really need to talk.
These last few days
I have been feeling very left out,
watching you hang out with all your
cool, new friends.
It's starting.
So it is.
Well, you have two options then, don't
Either give in, or give up.
It only dies if you do.
I'm not gonna die.
Here you go.
Can I watch?
Go away, please.
You touch my stuff again
and I'll tell Alice where you keep
your comics.
Are you sniffing me?
I need it.
Yeah, you said that before.
Why'd you have to go and do this?
I made a mistake.
Please give it to me.
There has to be consequences to our
or there is no order.
And there has to be order in a place,
or things get very, very confused.
I said... I need it.
Save it for group.
Welcome to rehab, baby.
You're starting to understand, aren't
How it all starts with wanting?
What were you thinking when he was in
that stall with you?
Because even I... really... was shocked.
I wanted the monkshood.
- I just...
- I just...
What did you want when he was pushing
up against you?
You're starting to figure it out,
aren't you?
How it all starts innocently enough,
today you want to fuck him...
tomorrow you want to bite a hole in
his sternum.
Think of these life skills
filling an imaginary backpack,
ready to hit the road anytime you do.
Close your eyes.
I am wiping all you've ever been,
all the names you've ever been called.
Names you've called yourselves...
that's ancient history.
Actually, it's not even history,
because what you're experiencing is
the world
for the very first time.
Think of the structure below,
the wood and metal that supports you.
And once your hand is in position
on your clitoris
we'll begin with a gentle,
counterclockwise rotation.
with rhythm.
Find your own.
Visualize the chest of a stranger
as his gaze penetrates you.
Now you are grabbing what's inside
His heart.
The meat.
The sinewy muscle.
Does he scream as you are ripping his
tender flesh?
Oh yes.
And his blood...
it warms your throat.
Great form, B.
Are you okay, Brigitte?
Beneath the skin
The beast within
Dieing to be
Beneath the stars
Tears and scars
Healing when
10 minutes to lockup.
I want you to come and see me.
I'm right here.
In my room.
That would be against the rules.
Do you smile?
Can you smile?
you smile at the world,
and the world will smile right back at
You should be getting back to your
Wll you come?
I'll think about it.
Look what I have!
Just leave it for him.
But Rocky always comes.
You don't look happy.
Are you gonna make me smile again?
Have you ever considered another
You know what?
I am quite happy playing the small,
but vital role here at the care
I think it's 'cause
I'm a people person.
So, what is this stuff, anyways?
Does it matter?
Not really.
What's with that?
I have a great sense of smell.
There's this vein down here
that is very private.
So you shave?
Well, I think that'sjust great.
Here you go.
Check back in on you in a half hour.
"Rocky runs. Rocky plays.
Rocky misses the good old days."
Why'd you do it?
He wasn't doing anything to you.
I did not do that.
I told them not to leave him alone
he'd be vulnerable to all the dangers
of the night...
of which you're the worst.
How could I have done that?
I can't even get out of my room.
I don't know.
You... you move through walls or
Ghost, if I could move through walls,
do you think I'd be in here?
This is important, where did you find
him? Outside?
By the back of the crematorium wall,
in the abandoned section.
- It found me.
- What found you?
I have to get out of here.
I can get you out.
What did you just say?
I know a way out,
through the vents.
But you have to take me with you.
I'll knock in a while.
Ghost? Ghost?
I'll leave the door unlocked, okay?
Just bring that back.
What... what are you doing here?
What are you doing here?
Want a snort?
I have to find a way out of here.
Don't bother.
Alice probably sealed up every window
Do you ever see things when you're
I just saw the freakiest thing.
It is like an animal, but deformed.
You said you'd wait for me.
- Go back to the clinic.
- Why?
Wha... what's going on?
It got Beth-Ann.
How do we get out of here?
- That way.
- We can't go that way.
This way.
Are you sure this is the way?
Over here.
Ghost? Ghost?
Ghost? Ghost?
Ghost, what are you doing?
We gotta pay the ferryman.
Let's go.
Good luck on your sad journey to the
other side, Beth-Ann.
I'm sorry you were such a cunt.
This is the crematorium.
There should be a way through the
In there!
Go! Go!
Come on, go!
Get in the car.
- Do you think it's dead?
- Just go!
Oh God, you're bleeding.
- What if you bleed to death?
- That's the least of our worries.
So was that the one that bit you?
I wasn't bit, my sister was.
And no, it wasn't the same one.
Well... well, where did it come from?
The infinite darkness?
I don't think so, Ghost.
I don't like the suburbs.
- If you weren't bit, then...
- I infected myself with her blood.
I thought I could make her stop if I
was like her.
I always wanted a sister.
Where is she now?
She isn't, I stopped her.
You killed your own sister?
There wasn't much of Ginger left in
what I killed.
So... so what'd you use, a silver
A knife.
They're not superheroes, Ghost.
Ooh, baby...
...Passing in the night
So fine
You know it's gonna be
So, come on, come on, come on, come
on, baby
Come on, if you want it to be...
Are you okay?
Your bathrooms are out of order.
- Yeah. You...
- Come on, love me tonight
And I'll be yours till the sun comes
You can use the staff bathroom.
Come on.
I got chips.
Alice says chips don't fall into one
of the four food groups.
One of her many lies.
You still eat chips, right?
It's happening too fast.
I need the monkshood.
Where's the needle?
Oh crap.
I really need a syringe.
Didn't your grandmother have diabetes
or an allergy to nuts or bees or
Why don't you just drink it?
I've tried that, it doesn't work.
Put it up your nose.
That's what all the other girls do.
I never had a sleepover before.
Once I almost did,
but then Barbara told
Caroline Kish's mom
that she'd have to pay her $9 an hour,
because it was basically like
Is this her?
Your grandma?
Yep. That's Barbara.
She was a provincial curling champion
four years in a row.
You call your grandmother Barbara?
- She called me Ghost.
- Why is that?
Barbara had this book called
"Behavioral Modification"
when I was seven.
It was all about subconscious
She called me Ghost because she hates
sudden noises, which I made a lot of.
Sometimes even walking around made
Barbara angry.
She was putting up
Christmas lights in here,
I was in the living room,
and she yelled for me to plug them in
so she could see
which ones were broken.
They lit her synthetic mumu on fire.
When I came in she was screaming,
trying to stop, drop and roll.
But thatjust got her more and more
twisted up in the lights.
That's really awful.
I'm just shitting you.
She fell asleep with her bedtime
I always told her not to smoke in bed.
After the accident
I took care of her.
- People think that's bad.
- Is that why you're at the clinic?
No, I'm at the clinic because Alice
gets money to keep me there.
Is that right?
Yeah, she just makes up another thing
about me to fix,
like "Hostility to conventional
or "ADD"...that's Attention Deficit
Actually, that's disorder...
Attention Deficit Disor...
Whatever, or "Inability to communicate
with the other residents."
You've seen them, who'd want to?
Barbara had dry eyes.
I don't see how that's gonna get into
your blood.
It's not as good as shooting,
but the membrane behind your eyeball's
like the bottom of your tongue.
The problem with the mouth
- is the saliva, which kills toxins...
- You like science, huh?
I do too.
Sick... I can't watch.
It's gonna find you, isn't it?
The fact that it didn't kill you
means something.
Maybe he's like you
and it's not in his nature to kill,
and he secretly wants...
it wants to mate with me.
Don't try too hard to visualize that.
My sister and I shared a room.
A sleepover every night.
Kind of.
Do you miss her?
All the time.
I'm up here.
What is that thing out front?
Polly Ester.
She explodes.
When I get her set up in the yard,
she'll be attached to a trip wire.
We'll see how he likes that.
Is that supposed to be me?
I look tough.
What do you do with these things?
Trade powers.
Comics are very incoherent.
Their makers send them out into the
unprepared for all the demons and
enemies they'll face.
I assess their weaknesses... make them
Who's that?
Burned Barbara.
I took away her nerve endings so she
can't feel pain.
So, what are you giving me?
What do you want?
That's hard.
You have to leave me.
You have to take the car and you have
to get out of here.
You didn't leave your sister.
That was different.
- She was out of control.
- And you aren't?
Look at you.
I'm not leaving you.
"Her isolation was made worse by a
growing desire to devour men...
but she resisted,
for she knew this would bring
destruction and death."
It'sjust me.
You scared me.
We destroyed the monster.
Stay inside, it may still be alive.
Polly got a deer.
"She kneeled to devour the downy
And all through the land
the forest creatures wept."
I need more monkshood.
We have to call Tyler.
You have blood on your face.
- Hello?
- It's Brigitte.
Where the hell are you?
I'll give you the clinic car if you
bring me my stuff.
Okay... okay, just wait.
Let me turn off the TV.
Brigitte, you still there?
Sort of.
It's been an hour.
Shouldn't he be here by now?
Stay here.
In the morning light
Feels so good by me...
It could be so right...
Work hard in the daytime
For our dinner at night
Comfort me at the right time
Everything's gonna be all right
Make me do anything you want
Make me be everything you want
Make me do anything you want.
- That is not funny.
- But it's not completely unfunny.
He's here.
Yes, he is here ladies.
Hey, my car's back there.
So this is home, huh, Ghost?
Kind of has a Manson family charm.
You know she took care of Granny after
the fire?
All burned up?
How long was it until the police
showed up?
43 days.
- Yikes.
- Did you bring a needle?
I'm suspended without pay because of
you three taking off.
Yeah, but hey, no big deal.
Where is Beth-Ann anyway?
She went to the city to see her
She missed him so much, she couldn't
be without him another minute.
- He's very handsome.
- Yeah, I'm sure he is.
You need to relax.
Here, let me do it.
Give it here, all right?
He should probably get going now,
You're having a reaction or something.
Your body's rejecting it.
Okay... that is not good.
That is not good... this is not
supposed to be hap...
I got... I got to get you to a
Take me anywhere and I'll tell Alice
Get away from me.
This is not good. This is so not
supposed to be happening.
- Oh God!
- Brigitte, what's happening?
What is that shit anyway?
- Brigitte?!
- Okay. Okay.
- Brigitte?!
- Okay.
All right.
Come here.
Listen, Brigitte is really sick.
I've never seen anything like this
She's really...
we're at the grandma's place.
I don't know what to do, okay?
- Get out!
- What?
I need to be alone.
She realized of course, she'd have to
come back to the clinic.
You realize of course that you're
speaking in the third person.
It's a little weird.
And I'm aware of no such thing.
What if I said I missed you?
"His words were empty, just like his
Did I hurt you when I pushed you?
I didn't mean to.
I'm sorry.
Hey, sleepyhead?
It's time.
What happened?
We shouldn't have brought him here.
What happened to your face?
Ghost happened.
- Do you think I need stitches?
- Why would she do that?
Have you been upstairs?
I don't think she knows what's real
and what's a cartoon.
That's convenient.
You get off on that, don't you?
What are you getting at?
I'm just shitting you.
Can you help me with the generator?
It needs more gas.
Wthout consequences to our actions
things get very confused.
God, no!
God, no!
Don't you just love the sound of
This ends now.
We can't fight what's in us, B.
I'm not like you, Ginger.
- I'm stronger.
- Oh, really?
That's not how I remember you the
first 15 years of your life.
It's how I remember the last 15
minutes of yours.
Where's Tyler?
Don't worry about him.
- What are you doing?
- I'm gonna kill it.
Get me all the sharp things you can
Are you scared?
What's that?
Stand back.
How long will it burn?
Barbara took about 27 minutes.
Get upstairs.
Go back to the darkness!
You shot at me!
What the hell?
I meant to shoot the monster.
Of course you did.
Get your ass over here and give me the
Where did you get that from?
Barbara hunted squirrels.
Tyler called me, where is he? Huh?
In the woods.
Where are the other girls?
Where's Brigitte?
Tyler said that she was
OD'ing again.
Beth-Ann's in the basement of the
and Brigitte's here.
She's fine.
Brigitte, come on out!
You were making progress, Ghost.
This is not progress.
What I see is a little girl who does
not divide what is real
and what is a fictional world in her
own mind...
...take responsibility for...
Why does it smell like gas in here?
- To burn the monster.
- Oh, Ghost!
Where did you say Beth-Ann is?
- She could eat you, you know.
- Holy shit.
- Brigitte?
- What happened to Grandma?
She fell asleep with a cigarette.
Grandma didn't smoke.
You burnt Barbara.
Did you lie about Tyler too?
"He pushed and he pulled and he
laughed when she cried."
- What did you really do?
- "He took advantage of her heart."
He didn't do it, did he?
He was gonna take you away from me!
- Step away!
Don't worry, Alice,
I've been where you are.
Oh yeah?
We're gonna get out of here.
I wouldn't go out there if I were you.
Upstairs! Quick! Quick! Hurry!
What the hell is out there?
The monster.
It's in the house?
Ghost, come on, quick.
Oh my God, something's still alive
down there.
Get back upstairs.
I knew you'd find us, Alice.
Kill me.
"Growing steadily stronger beneath the
her faithful companion, with a deadly
hunger for human flesh,
waited to unleash the darkness and
fury of hell
on her mistress's enemies...
...of which there were many.
And so began Ghost's reign of moral
