I actually enjoyed this movie. It was independent, yes, but it was also quite interesting. Of course, anything involving male genitals being ripped off amuses me greatly. I get tired of films having female nudity and woman being tortured and suffering, so when men get their just desserts, it makes me happy. Anyway, if you like indie horror and don't mind a bit of cheesiness/black humor, give this one a go.

I borrowed this from a friend. This was the goofiest movie I've ever seen! I almost turned it off after 30 minutes but for some reason I needed to know how it ended. Its a simple story but didn't really elaborate on how or why this teen has "Vagina Dentata", a legendary curse. Its pretty graphic as they show the male genitals (fake and not fake) when getting cut off by Dawn's vaginal teeth. If you like "indy style" movies with not so great acting then this is for you. I still don't know why I sat thru it.

Taking a bite out of crime
Elisabeth | 04/22/2010
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Dawn is a teenage virgin who plans on staying a virgin until marriage. Abstinence before marriage is such a strong value for her that she even teaches abstinence to high school kids.
One day, while on a date with a so-called nice guy who claims to share the same values as her, this guy reveals his true self by raping her.
On that day, both Dawn and her rapist discover that she has an extra set of teeth between her legs.
And on that day, she literally takes a bite out of crime...Lorena Bobbitt style.

It's never explained how she got these teeth, but I'm assuming it's because her family lives close to a power plant and the toxic chemicals caused her body to mutate. Another explanation is given during a teacher's lecture in class...the teacher is not directly talking about Dawn, however, the explanation still relates to Dawn's situation.

This movie is advertised as a comedy, but it contains some graphic sexual and violent scenes not typically seen in comedies. Although you never see Dawn's extra teeth down below, you do see the gory aftermath. A scene I thought was over-the-top disgusting (and the reason I gave this a lower rating) was the scene with the dog and Dawn's brother. The lower rating is also due to the corniness in some scenes.

This movie has a "girl power" kind of feel to it, so I expected this to be written and directed by a woman. Instead, to my surprise, it's both written and directed by a man. That got me wondering if perhaps this male writer/director harbors any fears about women's sexuality and anger.
Overall, I thought this was a thought provoking and original idea for a movie, although the end result was a bit corny and too graphic for my taste.
Good execution of a crazy plot device
Bryan Creel | 03/03/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The movie was very good. It had a lot of humor and was on some levels a spoof of other B horror movies. It has good pacing and some nice gore to keep you on your toes. If you happen to watch Nip/Tuck, you'll notice an actor from that series as Dawn's step-brother.

Dawn is played by Jess Weixler and is very cute - that doesn't hurt the movie at all. She does a great job of playing the transformation that happens to her character. She starts out as a very goody-goody teenager who's very active in a sexual abstinence group.

Things happen along the way and she is a very different person by the end.

I'd recommend Teeth. It's definitely worth a watch."
