High school student Dawn works hard at suppressing her budding sexuality by being the local chastity group's most active participant. Her task is made even more difficult by her bad boy stepbrother Brad's increasingly provocative behavior at home. A stranger to her own body, innocent Dawn discovers she has a toothed vagina when she becomes the object of violence. As she struggles to comprehend her anatomical uniqueness, Dawn experiences both the pitfalls and the power of being a living example of the vagina dentata myth.

Not sure what all the kvetching on this board is about….TEETH is gore-comedy at its best and it turns the misogynistic "vagina dentata" myth on its head. After its hilarious first act parodying evangelical sexual repression, scene after scene delivers with jaw-dropping "can't-believe-that's-happening" hysterical intensity.

Yes, it's campy, but it pays careful respect to its lead character. Jess Weixler shines as the young abstinence advocate who discovers her rare gift, receiving the much-deserved Jury Prize for Acting from the Sundance Film Festival. If you appreciate cult, camp, or horror with a feminist edge, this is for you!
