Critic Reviews for Teeth

All Critics (67) | Top Critics (21) | Fresh (53) | Rotten (14) | DVD (3)

As amateurishly made as it is, Teeth runs on a kind of angry distrust toward boys.

I'm not sure I've ever seen rape, incest or abuse dealt with so vapidly.

Top Critic

Whether you view it as a primordial image from the collective unconscious or a practical warning against promiscuity, vagina dentata makes an indubitably memorable impression -- and an ideal premise for a tongue-in-cheek teen horror movie.

Given how thoroughly all the subtext spells out the message, then, it seems unnecessary to make the actual text so raw, grotesque and graphic.

It's definitely not for Aunt Minnie, but cult movie mavens will appreciate director Mitchell Lichtenstein's willingness to push the boundaries of bad taste.

Teeth is both different enough from the usual teen trash to earn itself distinction and bold enough to go where other horrors wouldn't dare venture.

While probably too lurid and graphic for the mainstream's tastes, it's one of those films that has a genuine shot at acquiring cult classic status.

We haven't had a good vagina dentata movie in theaters lately, so it's a pleasure to see Teeth filling that particular need with such obvious relish and style.

East Bay Express

It's like a punch in the face.

Writer-director Mitchell Lichtenstein's low-budget horror film is...more satirical than scary...however, he ultimately delivers the gory goods.

ESplatter

Teeth is a unique hybrid of black comedy and horror movie send-up that is great good fun.

Full Review… | September 2, 2008

The tone of the film wavers between satire and horror-comedy, but that doesn't diminish the entertainment value of what plays like a tongue in cheek celebration of a woman who turns her imperfection into empowerment

Urban Cinefile

This is an incredibly unique, dark, smart, and humorous story of a woman discovering what she is capable of.

Sin Magazine

a witty satire that explores the state of the (female) body politic, spread-eagled between the puritanical and the priapic in a culturally confused America.

Little White Lies

It all works well enough that I wish it had been less of a cartoon.

Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus

You'll have to forgive the pun, but it simply lacks bite.

A well crafted clashing of sub-genres and themes that works to its advantage, making it an instant cult classic...

Cinema Crazed

Dawn may be the heroine of Teeth, but in the end the movie is still a little afraid of her.

LarsenOnFilm

Lichtenstein has a lot of ambitious ideas for his debut film but lacks the skills to pull any of them off

Full Review… | March 27, 2008
eFilmCritic.com

Star Jess Weixler, exerting the command and persona of a young Meryl Streep, grants enough earnest innocence that instead of fearing Dawn, you fear for her.

Audience Reviews for Teeth

½

A teenage girl who is active in the abstinence movement discovers she has fangs in her hoo-ha, much to her would-be lovers' misfortune. It would be hard to find a proper tone for this ridiculous premise; writer/director Mitchell Litchenstein decides to play it as a straight horror film, with mixed results.

I've seen all kinds of crazy horror movies, and crazy independent movies. Most of the time, they are just stupid and outlandish, but sometimes those movies are good. "Teeth" is one of those flicks, that is ridiculous, but a lot of fun. Basically it's about a girl who has teeth in her vagina. Yup, you can only imagine what happens with that, and it's pretty gory. Not as crazy or disturbing as say "Human Centipede" , but it has just as much effect. Basically, after watching this you won't want to have sex for a while, especially if your a guy. Like most indy movies, it's low budget and slow in spots, but when stuff happens, it's both funny and insane. I had this sitting on my DVR for a while, but then my buddy Combo Cash told me about it, and if he says to watch something, you better watch it. Unless you have a queasy stomach. Want a different, original, and ludacris horror movie, then watch this bad boy.

I think I watched a different movie to the critics... Awful film with a terrible and childish script with characters I couldn't care less about. Not to mention the amateur and student look. Don't bother.
