Teeth needs to be seen to be believed. Teeth is a movie about "vagina dentata," a toothed vagina that castrates men during sex. Jess Weixler is Dawn, a ring-bearing member of her high school's Promise Club and preaches abstinence to her classmates. With a permanent smile on her face, Dawn lives with a sick mother and a twisted step brother. Everything is fine until she goes swimming with a fellow chastity pledge (Hale Appleman), who loses his resolve and penis after he's overcome by hormones and attempts to rape Dawn.

Terrified, Dawn flees and is horrified to discover her vagina is equipped with sharklike teeth. Her gynecologist loses several fingers in the process of confirming this discovery. To divulge much more about the plot would spoil the twists and jolts that Teeth offers.

Part horror and part comedy, Teeth is campy, shameless and fun. Mitchell Lichtenstein's debut film is bold, original and guaranteed to make you smile. Now flash those chompers!

Trivia: Filmmaker Mitchell Lichtenstein is the son of artist, Roy Lichtenstein.
