The idea behind Teeth is both humorous and revolting. Vagina dentata - a lot of possibilities here, just as long as the theater audience isn't too uncomfortable.
Opening Clip: Teeth
Teeth tells the story of high school student Dawn (Jess Weixler) who works hard at suppressing her budding sexuality by being the local chastity group's most active participant. Her task is made even more difficult by her bad boy stepbrother Brad's (John Hensley) increasingly provocative behavior at home. A stranger to her own body, innocent Dawn discovers she has a toothed vagina when she becomes the object of violence. As she struggles to comprehend her anatomical uniqueness, Dawn experiences both the pitfalls and the power of being a living example of the vagina dentata myth.
The clip starts off with a look at the town's setting, which is close to a nuclear power plant, and I can only think, "Of course!" The scene quickly jumps over to little kids touching one another, which is right about where I stopped watching.
