Ginger Snaps (2000)
Two outcast teenage sisters from a suburban town preoccupy themselves with a fascination with death. The night Ginger gets her period, the sisters are attacked in the woods by a strange creature. Ginger is hurt, but her wounds heal quickly. Later on though, her behaviour turns bizarre. She also grows hair and a tail and starts on a dating rampage. Normal teenage behaviour, or evil? This film is a must for lovers of black humour.
Wes Craven's famous trilogy starts when Sidney Prescot, a good natured high school girl, first comes under attack by the ever-parodied Ghostface killer. Right from the first movie, Scream offers a bloody ride through high school parties, classic horror films, superstitions, and creeping-in-through-window sex scenes. Featuring Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and Rose McGowan, this flick has all the requirements of a 90's teen slasher film.
Urban Legend (1998)
90's teen darlings Tara Reid and Joshua Jackson star in this gorey tour de force in which an unknown killer uses urban legends as the means to kill his victims (think: the babysitter getting phone calls from an upstairs bedroom, the poprocks and soda cocktail, and the killer in the back seat of the car.) It's nonstop cheap thrills from start to finish.
The Craft (1996)
Earth, air, fire, water! A trio of high school witches finds their final fourth when a new girl comes to town – but is she more powerful than the rest of them? And will peer pressures of normal teenage life ruin their circle? This dark fantasy thriller deals with themes of feminism, sexuality and growing up different. Fairua Balk is truly at her best in the role of Nancy, the tortured soul / mean girl from a broken home.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992)
Before the series took ABC by storm, Kristy Swanson starred in the '92 film that started it all. When Buffy Summers, a carefree, popular girl in an LA high school, learns she is the chosen one, she's required to give up a life of shopping and parties to take on slayer training. She does, reluctantly, with the help of Lothos, the local vampire king (Rutger Hauer), and her leading man, Oliver Pike (Luke Perry).
