Overview

A high-school student struggling to suppress her budding sexuality makes a startling discovery about her womanhood after becoming the victim of sexual violence in director Michael Lichtenstein's semi-surreal exploration of the vagina dentata myth. Dawn Jess Weixler is a proud virgin and the most active member of her local chastity group. Though she struggles with every ounce of her willpower to resist the pleasures of the flesh, Dawn finds her noble efforts to remain chaste repeatedly challenged by her disturbed stepbrother, Brad -- whose provocative advances are becoming increasingly difficult to resist. When Dawn is sexually assaulted and discovers that her vagina actually has teeth, she struggles to comprehend her anatomical anomaly while experiencing both the benefits and drawbacks of this strange new revelation.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jason Buchanan
Fans of Michael Lehmann's 1989 cult classic Heathers should do themselves a favor and seek out this slick little indie from first-time feature filmmaker Michael Lichtenstein, as this gruesomely charming tale of vagina dentata shares a similar satirical tone with that darkly comic tale of teen alienation. Of course, there are some key differences separating the two films, yet their approach to skewering teen trends and suburban morality binds them as cinematic siblings that share an uncannily similar comic sensibility. Dawn Jess Weixler is a prim and proper teen who's saving herself for marriage, and who openly preaches what she practices as the impassioned spokesperson for an organization that uses a ring to symbolize their vow of abstinence think Promise Keepers. Her mother, Kim Vivienne Benesch, married single father Bill Lenny Von Dohlen when Dawn was just a little girl, and there's always been a certain tension between Dawn and her psychotic stepbrother, Brad John Hensley. When outwardly angelic teen Tobey Hale Appleman violates the virginal Dawn during what was supposed to be an innocent dip in the lake, the girl who treasured her vow of celibacy realizes just how different from her classmates she truly is. Any film dealing with teen sexuality will court a fair amount of controversy by default -- add a girl with a killer vagina into the mix, and odds are good that any potential distributor will go running for the hills. Thankfully for fans of extreme cinema, Roadside Attractions and Dimension Extreme have seen fit to give the film a proper stateside release. In terms of horror, Teeth delivers the gory goods yet never wallows in excess, while in terms of comedy, it uses smart satire and gruesome sight gags to highlight the adult hysteria surrounding sex education, and the inherent dangers of forced ignorance regarding human sexuality. Weixler's performance as virtuous teen Dawn successfully highlights the script's satirical strengths as her unusual character arc toys playfully with the idea that she is some kind of female superhero gradually coming to terms with her unusual power, and co-star Appleman makes a demented impression as well. Also distinguishing the film is Paul Avery's smart but subtle production design, the local nuclear cooling towers at one point adorning Dawn's suburban ranch home like some garish symbol of middle-class social status. Addressing such complex and controversial issues is certainly no easy task -- especially for a modestly budgeted independent such as Teeth -- yet thanks to his love for classic monster movies and his smart skills as a writer/director, Lichtenstein craftily manages to keep things relatively tasteful without necessarily playing it safe.

    Differently funny

    Deffinatly not for children. This is a great story about a girl who goes from abstinate to slut in the length of the movie. She must try to learn to controll her "Vagina Dentada" or else mame or even kill the poor sap who tries to have there way with her. There is a great dentist scene Where a perverse doctor sexually abuses her and gets four of his fingures chopped off. It ends with a great yet creepy scene were she gets a ride out of town but the creepy old guy wont let her out of the car and he keeps makeing obsene tung jestures to her. It made me laugh several times and is just plane fun to watch.

    This should be a cult classic with its offbeat slowness

    Teeth has the awkward off-kilter quality often found in eighties movie classics. The pace is a little slow for a true horror film, and the acting is terrible, but the premise is so good that this should be a cult classic, playing in the background of a loud underground club.

    best dark comedy ever ...

    i watched this move for the first time yesterday, and it is now one of my favorites. definitely a must for every woman, but my husband was a little horrified. i guess guys are pretty attached to their manhood, but not in this movie ... it took a few campy turns, but was overall both horrifying and funny. you will walk away wishing your girl parts had teeth.

    This movie is hilarious. It's really dark humor,and if you can't handle a couple severed penises, then this movie really isn't for you.
