Watched a movie the other night called "Teeth." It was about a girl who lived next to a nuclear power plant. Through her beginning and up to teen years she always felt different. She was involved in her High School purity ring association but after being sexually assaulted she discovered she possessed an unexpected line of defense..........a toothed vag. Although the school had a sex education class they had covered the pic in the texts about female genitalia so obviously being as sheltered as she was, she didn't know that this wasn't normal. She found an internet site about a mythological trait called "vagina dentata" and went to get checked out etc by a doc. Anyways, it seems that men just couldn't leave well enough a long and her vagina dentata came to her defense in a situations including an abusive brother, doctor and teenage boys who sought to exploit her.
Although the concept of this movie sounded crude, it actually had some light femanist perspectives, was easily enjoyable and had a great story line. It really didn't show too much female nuditiy but did include a couple of decapitated weiners, but after seeing Hostel 2, this wasn't anything that I found appalling. Light horror with a little bit of comedy, a few twists and leaving room for a "Teeth 2," I think it would be an interesting watch for something a bit different that isn't totally based on gore or exploiting women.
Has anybody else seen it?
