The Beast is an unnamed werewolf who relentlessly stalks Brigitte Fitzgerald in Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed. His appearance to Brigitte coincides with Brigitte's werewolf transformation.

Origin[edit | edit source]

Strictly from the film, all that is known about the Beast's origin is he is a transformed male. It is unknown who the werewolf is, and his exact motivations for stalking Brigitte while avoiding other targets are unknown, but Brigitte assumes that it plans to mate with her only. However, according to the cast, the werewolf is Sam from Ginger Snaps.

History[edit | edit source]

Stalking Brigitte[edit | edit source]

The Beast has been tracking Brigitte for some time after her run-away from her family home in Bailey Downs. Ginger warns Brigitte of the Beast successfully finding Brigitte, but the Beast successfully finds her at a low-end hotel chain where she was residing. After this revelation, Brigitte quickly attempts to escape, but she suffers from drug overdose. While Jeremy attempts to bring Brigitte to the hospital, the Beast attacks and kills him. While the Beast was busy dismembering Jeremy, Brigitte escapes, but she collapses in the snow not far from the attack.

Discovery[edit | edit source]

Brigitte was brought to the Happier Times Care Clinic, but the werewolf continued to track her. A few days afterward, Ghost's dog Rocky is found dead and mutilated in the disused crematorium section of the hospital, Brigitte realizes that the werewolf had successfully found her.

Brigitte plans an escape with Ghost, and they venture into the hospital's basement into the crematorium section. The werewolf attacks and kills Beth-Ann after Brigitte accidently discovers her. The Beast chases Brigitte and Ghost, and while escaping through a vent, the Beast grabs Brigitte and swings her against a wall, breaking her leg. Brigitte quickly heals, and while the Beast prepares to mate with her, Ghost distracts him. Brigitte escapes, the Ghost gives chase, and he is stopped after Ghost lights a match with the flames stopping him in the crematorium.

Death[edit | edit source]

After Ghost and Brigitte escape to Barbara's house, the werewolf continues to track Brigitte. Another few days pass, and the Beast kills Tyler after he was locked outside by Brigitte. Later, when Alice tries to take away Ghost, the werewolf howls and breaks a nearby window and decides to directly engage with Brigitte.

The Beast is killed during the ensuing struggle with Brigitte, after she pushes the werewolf down into the basement of Barbara's house, accidently impaling him on a set of sharp objects she and Ghost set up.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

The werewolf has a toned appearance, with white, light gray, and black fur with a white face. This departs from the hairless, peach-color, almost completely bald werewolf seen in Ginger Snaps.

Analysis[edit | edit source]

The Beast serves as an unwanted stalker to Brigitte, who actively resists the sexual urges brought on by the lycanthropy transformation (and which Ginger coerces Brigitte to give into). Her efforts to escape the werewolf are useless, as the Beast always manages to successfully track her. Unlike the first film, where Sam, who Brigitte trusts, attempts to get to know and befriend her by searching for her until he finds her name, the Beast relentlessly tracks Brigitte down, but the Beast had malicious intentions. If the Beast was Sam, then this could infer that lycanthropy corrupts the personality of the person, whereas human Sam was gentle and non-pursuant, in contrast with the stalker werewolf.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Though not explicitly stated where the werewolf came from, the werewolf is supposedly another male who had transformed. His human self is never seen, but he is speculated to be Jason; however, the film makers have stated that it is not Jason. Sam is seen killed in Ginger Snaps, but he might have survived and transformed. Yet, according to the cast members, the male werewolf was Sam. See Fan Theories for additional details.
  • The Beast's success in tracking Brigitte appears to coincide with the level of Brigitte's transformation (and also coincidentally with Brigitte achieving adolescence). It is unknown what town Brigitte had run away to, but it is assumed that if she had gone by foot, she could not have made it very far. The Beast took several days to successfully find Brigitte, and as Brigitte's transformation accelerates, the Beast manages to find her more quickly.
