Retro Poster: "Teeth" (2007)
Many horror films are derived from a classic myth or legend and in that sense, "Teeth" is no different. "Teeth" tackles the myth of "vagina dentata" in the coming of age story of virginal teenager Dawn (Jess Weixler), who discovers that her vagina has teeth. Written and directed by Mitchell Lichtenstein, Dawn realizes that her difference in anatomy can actually be a physical advantage over men. Don't let the heavy subject matter scare you; the film doesn't take itself too seriously. In fact, "Teeth" is a great mix of horror and black comedy, as it manages to be dark, gruesome, sarcastic, campy and downright hilarious in all the right spots. To hear more about the film, head on over to the BGH Classic Page and hear the crew discuss their thoughts on "Teeth" and "Black Sheep" in podcast episode 32.
