    Peter Hartlaub San Francisco Chronicle

    Funny, very clever and still packs some cover-your-face bloody thrills that top any "Saw" or "Hostel" movie. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    There's no scarier myth for males, and Mr. Lichtenstein turns various images of emasculation into a black comedy that flirts, fairly tediously, with pornography. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    A smart and creepy fable in which the myth of the vagina dentata - yes, a toothed sex organ - is transplanted to teen suburbia. show more

    The film should have the edgy wit of "Election" here, but instead is played so straight it's hard to make the shift when things start getting really crazy. But stick with it and you'll be rewarded with a new kind of superhero and a couple of the ghastliest, most outrageous penis jokes ever imagined. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    The most alarming cautionary tale for men with wandering libidos since "Fatal Attraction." It may also be the first horror movie that women drag men to see rather than the reverse. show more

    Teeth is not only odd but it's genre-defying. The film doesn't limit its field of choice: it's a black comedy, it's a drama about teen angst, it's a romance gone bad, it's a B-grade horror film, it's an allegory about female empowerment. show more

    Teeth is about female exploitation and male castration. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    An anti-date movie if there ever was one, Teeth is a darkly engaging if uneven horror movie spoof centering on men's fear of castration. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    Teeth is the "Incredible Hulk" of sex satires. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    The film's mix of cheap gags, macabre coming-of-age story, social satire and Cronenbergian body horror is apparently meant to gel into black comedy, but it never quite does. show more

    I say... rent it, or better yet, BUY IT. it is one of thee most entertaining movies i have ever watched. & i have watched it over and over again. the shock factor in this movie is insane. the only reason i could see this movie being stupid is if one of your friends told you about it, and ruined it for you. & as for not seeing the "woman empowerment" jussjessjess, take the end when she sleeps with her step brother, she is getting back at him like no man would be able to do. thats woman empowerment. its straight up in your face entertainment.

    this movie is so ridiculous. the only thing you can really do is laugh at men's stuff hitting the floor. i read the back, thinking i'd give it a chance.... but i really didn't see too much "women empowerment" in it, especially since she was *****, taken advantage of, etc. and all she could do was cut off the guys' you-know-what. please don't bother with this stupid stupid movie.

    My friends and I went to this movie as a total joke, we could not actually imagine this movie being real!! However, we were surprised at is, as it was very entertaining and totally "watch-able" I would reccomend going with a group of friends and not expect anything too serious....what a laugh we all had!

    A bluntly unmetaphorical remake of "Rabid" without even the much maligned rare mainstream appearance of Marilyn Chambers.

    Teeth is not a horror movie meant to be taken as a serious, thriller horror movie. True, the situations might be horrifying, but at the same time a part of you can't help but laugh at the absurdity of it. It reminded me a lot of Slither in the sense that it doesn't try to be the classical "someone goes on a killing spree" horror. PS- The "no nukes" undertone screamed of ignorance on their part however.
