Storyline

Dawn grows up in the shadow of a nuclear power plant. In high school, while her biology class studies evolution, she realizes she may have a hidden curse, an "adaptation." She lives with her mom, step-father, and hard-edged step-brother. She likes Tobey, a guy at school, and he likes her. She takes a pledge to remain chaste until marriage, so they date in groups, watch G-rated films, and don't kiss, but the power of teen hormones is great, so temptation beckons. Dawn has an admirer in Ryan, and when when things have an unexpected twist with Tobey, she turns to Ryan for help. Will he be her mythical hero and rescue her? Or can she find her way as her own hero, turning the curse into an asset? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Greater Than the Sum of its Mutilated Parts
28 February 2010 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

If you like art movies that move you and make you think yet aren't too lazy or self-obsessed to take the effort to entertain- not always an easy trick to pull off- 'Teeth' is for you.

After hearing a bit about the movie and expecting nothing more than a crotch-grab-inducing B-horror flick, I was frankly curious to see how this subject matter could possibly be handled without an X-rating. In the process of getting my answer I was treated to a refreshingly unflinching examination of teen mores, unrequited love, revenge, and feminism all wrapped up in a coming of age story brilliantly headed by Jess Weixler.

John Hensley is equally absurd and on-target in the role of her troubled brother Brad and the disturbingly believable cast of characters takes the viewer from one unexpected place to the other while always ringing true.

Underneath its veneer of teen/horror camp, 'Teeth' is intelligently accessorized with the kind of ticking subtext that pumps the narrative through with humor, spunk, and heart. It pulls you in with all of the heady energy, truth, and blinding optimism of an ill-advised teenage crush.
