Films Ginger Snaps
See? I'm up to some whack shit right now. I'm way out on the corner of Fucked-Up and Evil. You wanna know what I did for fun last night, huh? I killed my own freakin' dog, OK? Now what am I supposed to do about that, huh?

– Jason.

Jason McCardy was a character in Ginger Snaps, infected with werewolfism.

It is speculated that he might have eventually became the werewolf that Brigitte Fitzgerald is on the run from in the sequel.



He developed an interest in Ginger Fitzgerald, but when he first suggested that they should be together, Ginger dismissed him. He approached her again and suggested smoking some marijuana with his friends and he. What Jason didn't realize at the time, was that Ginger had been infected with lycanthropy and was slowly turning into a werewolf.

As a werewolfEdit

Ginger finally gave Jason what he had been looking for and the two engaged in unprotected sex in the back of Jason's car. Ginger transmitted her infection to him and within a few days he began exhibiting signs of lycanthropy. He became more aggressive, his facial features grew distorted and he even began growing a tail. The final break to Jason's psyche was when he began urinating blood. He came upon Ginger's sister Brigitte and told her what had been happening. As he described it, he was "way out on the corner of Fucked-Up and Evil". He even demonstrated his feral tendencies by massacring his family dog.

As it turned out, Brigitte and another boy named Sam discovered a cure for lycanthropy in the form of the Monkshood flower. They boiled it down into a serum and filled it in a syringe. Brigitte found Jason in the midst of terrorizing a young child. Jason turned around and attacked Brigitte and she was forced to stab him in the neck with the syringe. The solution appeared to have worked and the symptoms quickly disappeared. In a daze, Jason got up and returned to school.


In the second film, it is revealed that the Monkshood is a temporary cure, so it is possible he still suffers Lycantrhopy.
