MaT here. I reviewed Teeth for Splattercast 78. The film is solid all around and doesn't have any major problems. The acting is good, the direction is sound, and it has great production values. The problems stem from the fact that it is completely by-the-numbers. The whole plot is exactly what you'd expect from a film about a girl with teeth in her nether regions. The fact that it is so predictable hurts the overall package and instead of crafting something that really stands out, it becomes just an average revenge flick. The film has an alleged "feminist" slant to it. You might question that assertion when you see a completely unnecessary nude scene that comes out of nowhere from the lead actress. Still, it's an o.k. film that never quite gets to the level it strives for.

Be careful where you're sticking your lightsaber on Splattercast #78!

6 / 10
