This is one of those movies that I'm going to want to show to everyone I know. Great cult film, probably destined to be a classic. I'm going to try and incorporate "vagina dentata!" into my everyday vocabulary.

I just watched this movie for the second time. It's so great. It's about a girl with Vagina Dentata, which is exactly what it sounds like. It's a dark comedy/horror movie chock full of gory castration scenes. The vagina-toothed girl is a Christian who leads an abstinence group at school. Oh the irony. Anyway, I think this movie is perfect. Brilliantly acted, smart, funny, terrifying, and profound. You can watch it instantly on Netflix, so you should do that pronto.

A great example of a black comedy, the subject matter is slightly dark yet funny as well. Fun movie all around, very original.

Action: 2/3 + Comedy: 1/2 + Good vs Evil: 1/1 + Love/Sex: 1/1 + Special Effects: 0/1 + Plot: 0.5/1 +Music: 0.5/1 = 6/10 or 60%.

Teeth summons uncomfortability simply by explaining the plot. The cleverness of the product comes in the initial subtleties, the background of smoke stacks imply mutation and the initial speeches such as the biology teacher explaining why rattle snakes have rattles. There is a reason this is straight to DVD however and that is the overall direction.

Any seasoned director would realize immediaitely that Teeth is a one joke product, similar to Liar, Liar. One joke in different situations. That's it. So why it reveals the fabled punch line in the first minute of viewing is a head scratcher. There are 89 minutes left to tell the same joke. Thus, the taboo topi...

No Bite

The idea was interesting but I’m afraid I can’t quite recommend it because there were too many empty moments where I thought, “Okay, just get on with the story already.” I’m talking about the shots when the camera would just stay fixed at one place or face. Usually, it works in more thoughtful movies but it did not work for this film because there wasn’t a deep enough story to merit such still shots designed to capture a character’s thoughts or genuine expression. Nonetheless, there were several highlights in this film–most often involves the main actress: Jess Weixler. I did enjoy scenes like the gynecologist’s office, the group date choosing which movie to watch, and the garage temptation. With a bit more material to work with, I think Weixler would’ve completely worked this film. Inste...

"Teeth" has a little bite

Funny concept, but somehow more interesting in theory than execution.

My favorite aspect of it was the hypocrisy of the teenage activists against pre-marital sex who can resist no longer when faced with temptation. Suddenly, there's no guilt or remorse; rather, any emotion is expressed as anger. And that anger is represented by the titular "teeth" of our heroine's vagina (which it is not too subtly suggested are a mutation caused by living in the shadow of two nuclear cooling towers).

"Teeth" isn't played strictly for laughs or for thrills; instead, an uneven balance of both.

Skin rating = 3 (out of 4). Lots of high school boy flesh, including a gym shower scene with full frontal male nudity. There are also several close-ups of male genitalia, if shots of bitten-off penises a...
