Dawn is a pretty high school virgin who unknowingly has a set of mutant teeth between her legs. Caught between her emerging sexuality and a host of oversexed young men, Dawn eventually gives in to her freakish powers.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
Not as bad as I was lead to believe. Once the tone changed after the OBG/YN scene Teeth got way more fun, admittedly disturbingly fun. The prosthetic dongs with animal imagery was funny even if the tone of the movie was even. The final scene with the creepy old man licking his lips was priceless.
Decent idea for a short, maybe. Or a fake trailer to post on YouTube. But at 90 minutes, this is just repetitive and deadly dull. The tone is too cartoonish for the dis"member"ments to be disturbing. Come to think of it, the tone is also too cartoonish to inspire any actual laughs, which seems to be the primary goal.
Terrible. The execution here is just downright awful. Neither funny, nor scary. Repetitive in that you see one penis getting bit off, you've seen them all. The interesting premise goes straight to the toilet.
There are actually some entertaining, if not goofy, symbolic flourishes (I think the smoke stacks were the most restrained), but the final point of the movie doesn't make it all the way to a balanced perspective. Men are almost uniformly awful here, which means continuous mutual pleasure is out of the question. Sophomoric vengeance rules the day, and 'Teeth' could have stood to think with its brain over its 'organs'.
