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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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

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.

In one of the great light bulb ideas that could only happen in association with making movies, along comes Teeth to bite us hard. If you think the rhetorical illustration of the events defy logic, just wait to actually sink your own teeth into it.

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.

That the movie manages to successfully transcend shock value is probably its greatest accomplishment.

Daring, funny and unabashedly Indie, Teeth is an original and ingenious creation. Grab a bunch of men and go see it, just make sure they have enough room to cross their legs.

Teeth works so well and is so original for at least the first half that it makes the slight fumble near the end zone forgivable.
