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.

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.

July 14, 2011
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.

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

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

August 3, 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
July 22, 2008
This is an incredibly unique, dark, smart, and humorous story of a woman discovering what she is capable of.

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.

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

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...

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.

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

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

Given how thoroughly all the subtext spells out the message, then, it seems unnecessary to make the actual text so raw, grotesque and graphic. Granted, a horror movie about vagina dentata was probably never destined to be tasteful, but Lichtenstein's comp
