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.

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. Granted, a horror movie about vagina dentata was probably never destined to be tasteful, but Lichtenstein's comp

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.

Every time the scary music kicks in and another dumb male clutches his crotch, the theater bursts into uncertain giggles like a needed release

[The] castration scenes aren't nearly as excruciating as his awkward timing and worse-than-obvious pacing.

January 25, 2008
Extremely funny, very clever and still packs some cover-your-face bloody thrills that top any Saw or Hostel movie.

January 23, 2008
Debuting director Mitchell (son of Roy) Litchtenstein creates a lot of dread but not a consistent tone.

January 23, 2008
There's no scarier myth for males, and [director] Lichtenstein turns various images of emasculation into a black comedy that flirts, fairly tediously, with pornography.
January 18, 2008
The picture is unfocused and indistinct; there's a noncommittal quality to the filmmaking. Teeth hinges on one strong idea but doesn't know quite where to take it, wobbling awkwardly between going for laughs and making its semi-delineated points.
January 18, 2008
Actor turned writer-director Mitchell Lichtenstein has bitten into one of the oldest myths in human folklore with Teeth, an imaginatively demented horror-comedy.

Teenage horror-movie spoof, John Waters parody, No Nukes protest movie: Mitchell Lichtenstein's clever, crude comedy, Teeth is all these and more.

Campy, shameless and sophisticated, Lichtenstein's debut is gutsy and original.

The gratuitous and often overly garish mayhem is made more palatable by the assured comedic turn by Weixler.

Writer-director Mitchell Lichtenstein is onto something really fresh in his feature debut, flipping a graphic warning for men into an empowering fable for women.

January 15, 2008
Credit writer-director Mitchell Lichtenstein with making a first feature that every man in America will watch with his legs crossed.
January 14, 2008
In Teeth, Mitchell Lichtenstein makes the old v.d. the centerpiece of a gory female-revenge black comedy.
January 31, 2007
A game, disarming lead performance from Jess Weixler, who won a jury acting prize at Sundance, goes some way toward making palatable this mish-mash.
January 25, 2007
Teeth is a solid first effort that makes you extremely curious about the filmmaker's next project.

After Dawn comes to understand her remarkable genital gift, it's pretty much one can-you-top-this gross-out scene after another.
