Teeth

This rather odd film is about a teenage girl, Dawn, who works for a group promoting teen chastity. She lives with her stepbrother, stepfather, and mother, right next to a nuclear power plant. Dawn’s incessant work with the group helps her to keep her budding sexuality in check. However, when a boy gets too close to her and tries to force himself on her, she discovers that she has the mutation vagina dentata – teeth in her vagina. Using a series of rather grisly events – it is not difficult to imagine these – the film serves simultaneously as a lampoon of the teenage chastity movement and a story of female empowerment. Thumbs up for a rather different type of horror film that is rather light on plot but had me laughing in several places.
