After a sudden underwater tremor sets free scores of the prehistoric man-eating fish, an unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food for the area's new razor-toothed residents.
When a serial killer interrupts the fun at the swanky Coconut Pete's Coconut Beach Resort -- a hedonistic island paradise for swingers --- it's up to the club's staff to stop the violence ... or at least hide it!
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
During the filming of the first scene, many of the neighbors were protesting the film because they believed it to be a pornographic film. See more »
When Ryan is pouring Dawn a glass of champagne, the foam appears to be filling half the glass. When he hands her the glass, it has instantly dissipated. When he pours his own glass, it takes much longer for the foam to dissipate. See more »

Who says vagina dentata isn't an interesting subject?
Teeth is a horror comedy about the myth of vaginal "teeth". Theatrical trailers said that it made men squeal - a similar way Fatal Attraction 20 years ago was received. It's great to see a horror movie this brilliant at the same time funny and gross.
Three penises and four fingers were cut in the story but it was clear in the film that no man was harmed in the making of the movie. I like Teeth not because of those cutting-edge (hahaha) scenes but because it's a movie that made men check out their wives, mistresses and girlfriends and see if they have teeth in their vaginas. It's good to see an original intelligent horror movie made at the time where stupid remakes and gornography destroy the entire horror genre.
I like the horrifyingly funny script (Tobey's sexually frustrated declaration "I HAVEN'T EVEN JERKED OFF SINCE EASTER!" was a real teenage example of reasons to have sex) and the simple but unique direction by Lichtenstein.
Teeth isn't as serious as the screamer Fatal Attraction but it does manage to scare men... leave them jerking off rather than having sex. But maybe Teeth is also a gory example of STDs and AIDS.
A horror film that can cut right through you!
